Are you talking about the Studio Pro series? I'd definitely go for the 35 (6L6 tubes) if thats what you're asking. You should take a look at the Crystal. I've got one and I dig it. It sounds great at lower volumes and got the extra headroom if you want it.
Are there any characteristics that differ between these manufacturers? Some say that Collings' is brighter (or more balanced), others say they lack "life" and bass.
What do you think? To specify, OM-28 / OM2h, OM-42 / OM3 etc.
Which one would you recommend?
Indeed! It is a great detail.
Would never buy it without trying it first... Check out this video:
Thanks a lot for taking the time to reply.
Looks vs. sounds: I get what you're saying. What I was considering at first was the OM-42, which is a 14-fret fairly small...
Any love? Thinking this might be my next purchase.
Look at that rosette!!

I agree. I've got the 50w. Crystal at my apartment and I nail the Mayer tone 99,7%. Loving it! Playing it at decent levels not bothering my gf or my neighbors. Watts is not the same as volume. Listen to the other guys here and go for the 50w.
