When people say it doesn't sound like an original, that's a bit misleading. I've owned several silverface Princetons, Deluxes and Twins that were all well maintained and serviced, and even with the same brand/model of tubes in each amp they all sounded different from each other. Most sound great, but still pretty easy to hear differences between them. I will say that the one Twin Reverb Reissue I had sounded like crap though compared to the silverfaces. If I was in the market for. Twin Reverb I'd buy the Tone Master Twin in a heartbeat over a reissue and have no complaints about my Tone Master Deluxe.
