Okay tweed bassman vs tweed deluxe Tone? Compare.

if the “tweed” sound distilled to these, who’s the least common denominator?

The twist: before power or output volume come into play, imagine that the deluxe you are comparing is the Victoria Double Deluxe. ie, the deluxe tone with the bassman output (roughly, at least louder)

Who wins now?

Why do people talk about comparing amps with totally different circuits, power, and tone? A 5E3 Tweed Deluxe sounds nothing like a 5F6A Bassman and vice versa.

And yes, I play a 5F6A clone I built myself.

2 different animals... my favorite tweed is the 3x10 Bandmaster.....hands down. 30 watts, cleans up better than a Tweed Deluxe and distorts nicer and at more reasonable band volumes than the Bassman.....try one. Victoria makes a great one...
fwiw, the double deluxe doesn’t cut it....not a good compromise, imho
