a friend just got one. it's a 101 Reverb through a matching 1x12 cab. sounded much like a really good fender, to me. the gain sound is really fine, also. I went on the quilter website and read that the bass and treble control makes a blackface deluxe noise, and the mid control brings out an "aggressive D-style bite". "D" meaning dumble, I guess? i'm not as knowledable on amps as most on the tdpri, but for 7 bills, this would do anything i'd ever need an amplifier to do, I think. those who know, is it as great as it seems? are there any drawbacks?
