    I would be waiting till the Fender Tone Master amps were released next month before I bought anything.

    I have a great memory of a drip edge BR with the big cab, and a busted up SG Special for a gig one night. That rig screamed.

    I have a 210 Super for the brown flavor. Thick and chewy, especially with the trem.

    From a purely economic standpoint.... the BM will always hold it's value where the DRRI will depreciate from the moment it leaves the store. That said.....

    I have owned my 68 BM drip edge for over 40 years. It's been a great amp and it takes pedals very well. I am currently running a set of NOS Tung Sol 5881's in it. They give it a bit more bite vs the 6L6. I've also fabricated a "gig friendly" 2x12 speaker cab for it.
