As Tag said, quite different. To get Tab's tone (which he himself vastly prefers from his #1) you need to find the right combination of thinline and WRHB pickups. I've played a few originals, a new custom shop (not even close) and this latest one which I'd ordered five years ago. Standard tele...
Dan (TPS) mentioned to me that he preferred a slightly middier EQ on the HM, much like it is set up when assembled. Personally, I prefer something more neutral, which is what I get now in my pedalboard unfriendly Reverberammo.
I have the RC-10 and RC-500.
The 10 has more rhythm options but is harder to use (I have an MC6 controlling mine). The 500 is more plug and play, and the battery power was a bonus for my standalone practice amp. It also has a click count in which I had to create a special midi file for on the...
If the signal gets inverted I’ll just flip it back (assuming that’s what you meant?).
The plan is to introduce some PI type distortion into the chain, though surprisingly Simon only plans to use one triode, I’d always assumed that crossover distortion was part of the sonic soup.

Just picked up a Chase Bliss CXM now that is so much more user friendly than the Ventris, though at that price it should come with a dedicated tech guy to push the sliders.
I found I could get my TS to sound like my plexiglass Constable enough that I sold the Constable and kept a Bassman/ JTM45 one instead. I also sold my Page V2 as the TS was able to get those tones and a lot more.
Simon's making me a standalone phase inverter next (from the Troubadour), to put...
