Hello! I`ve owned the TK imperial for one week now, and I have to say it`s a mighty fine amplifier. Very impressive indeed! For my taste I`ve found my favourite tones on the Rhytm channel. It`s outstanding! Yesterday I suddenly was offered a trade for a Victoria Golden Melody 2x12 combo. I don`t get the chance to try it first, and I don`t know what do do. The GM is a much more expensive amps (at least over here in Europe), and all reviews on it is just one big happy adventure. The TK Imperial is a very nice sounding amplifier, and I can`t possible imagine that anything will sound any better in the Fender camp. A bit different maybe, but not better. Then again the GM is a 2x12, while the TKI is a 1x12. Further the GM is rated 40 watts, while the TKI is only 20watt (but it is 20 extremly loud watts). Finally all raves about how extremly well the GM take overdrivepedals- as does the TKI. Any of you TGPèr have tried both? How do they compare to each other? Any reason I should accept the trade offer? All replies will be much appreciated! Cheers Mary!
