    Anyone have any new experiences with these amps?
    I am curious to know about the the regular stuff...
    • Tone
    • Reliability
    • Pedal Friendliness
    • Modability
    • Rattles, etc

    How reminiscent of a 5e3 and BF are these?
    Touch Sensitivity?

    Thanks in advance all..

    So ...
    Neither of these amps have much play on the internet.
    I just ordered a Standard 12. This is rumored to be a 5e3 clone.
    Perhaps when I receive it next week, I can shed some light on this, USA built, handwired, tag board amp.

    QUESTION.... How might I best evaluate this as a 5e3 since I have never played a 5e3?

    Thanks in advance

    As would I! I'll check for airfare to Sheffield. Think the Standard 12 will fit in an overhead compartment?

    I'm going to jump to your thread to ask a question or two..

    I tried the 12/20 RT today and it is really impressive. Great reverb and trem. The tone and drive of the amp is very tweakable. Boost is useful, not over the top. Even has a built in 9V power supply.
