    BOR all the way. I've had several people comment on it after shows. "How'd you get that JTM sound with an AC30?" And some of these dudes really know JTMs. In particular, I use either a Malcolm Young Gretsch or a Gibson Firebird. JTM heaven!!!

    I had Fetto but nothing comes close to AYA R Drivesta as far as Marshall sound.

    So have you used it with a Fender amp as the original poster was asking?
    I can see a BoR working better with an amp like an AC30, but the Q was re: Fender amps.

    I've been a fanboy of the BSIAB 2 since 2006. SO many sounds in that box that I had to build three of them.

    Bump for updated thoughts. Looking for a MIAB for my Princeton Reverb '65 RI.

    Been looking at the Purple Plexi. But will it stack well with either a fuzz or Klon (clone)?

    I've been praising this pedal a lot lately, but its just so damn good- Bogner Lagrange. Low gain and midgain tones are exceptional and very tweakable. I play a 65 princeton too. Not looking at any other MIABs now. Distortron was my old favorite but the LG is on a different level.

    Barber Direct Drive Compact. I use with vintage Deluxe Reverb. You get Marshall focus tone with feel of tube sag. Voiced perfect with two outside switches pointing inward.

    +1. I have the left switch set to the left to tighten things up a bit. Both sound good, though.

    I´ve been using the Gurus Double Decker 1959 into a clean "Fenderish" amp (Two Rock Classic Reverb) for like two years now and I´m still super pleased with it. Its expensive but its got two channels with independent three band EQs, a separate volume boost, D/I, and most of all superb sounds and responsiveness. Its very good for stacking with other dirt pedals. Everytime I try out a new dirt pedal I find that I love the DD more.

    I could mimick nearly everything you just said. Very amp like, even moreso then the Bogner Blue i had. The boost rules too. I play a Mesa Transatlantic 30 and i use the boost when i use the gain channel on my Mesa. So the boost is totally independent which is really cool. I've only had my 1959DD a few weeks and i'm hooked. Now i can get some cool Marshall tones along with all the tones the Mesa TA30 gives me. A Gurus T7E pedal and i'm done...Gurus pedals are worth it imo...
