Awsome sounding tone machine - Perfect Blues amp for small / medium sized clubs. I already have a high end English so here are some quick observations . The English has a slightly deeper more extended bottom end on the cleans - almost like a pull deep switch and also is more chimey.the Bluetick cleans are fuller and also quite chimey but the bottom end is tighter and the mids are more pronounced - it feels like you're playing 009's with the English and 0010's with the Bluetick. the OD sound of the English also feels like 9's when compared to the Bluetick. the Bt is thicker and Ballsier than the English - the English is sweeter and smoother than the Bluetick but that could be cause I'm using EL34 Winged "C"'s in the Bt - maybe with 6V6's the tick will smooth out but I prefer the raunchier thicker OD of the Bt to the English . The English will stay in the family as it's still a Wonderful amp. I'll post pics and clips soon - BTW the BT is all Flame maple with birdseye front - beautiful. - I also got two 1x12 flame maple speaker cabs - Cel blue spkr. I don't want to rave on the first day but this amp is everything I hoped it would be and more!!!! honestly - it's a wonderful all rounder and is my perfect blues amp - Perfect!!!!!! George Alessandro is a great amp builder and a wonderful guy to deal with - an absolute gentleman - I'll be his customer for life. this is my second purchase from him and I'm totally satisfied in every way.
