I am really digging it myself. The clean channel is just KILLER!!
Ive owned 3 standard Shivas and like them better. More organic sounding to me
I have played an EL34 20th Anniversary Shiva (mine) next to an older Shiva (friend's) and we preferred the new one with EL34s. Bigger, fatter, warmer, smoother. That's what I hear. My Egnater Mod 50 was much better than the older Shiva, the new Shivas kill. I hate KT88s so I won't even go there.Can you clarify that? The 20th more sterile sounding? Cleans, OD, or both?
I ask because I do love my two year old EL34 Shiva, but I also like the looks and features of the 20th, so I have considered selling/trading my original model for the 20th in the past. But I don't have one around here to try out.
