Well the '66 may need a little work. It should be a "no contest" when put side by side with a "reissue". What's the asking price; if you don't mind?I have a chance to buy a 66 BFDR w/JBLD120.
Great sounding amp however it doesn't completely blow my DRRI w/C-REX away, which actually sounds killer live.
What do you do?
you are CLEARLY missing something: you already have a great-sounding amp. either that, or the bf is in need of work to get it to sound as good as a drri with your bias and speaker. . . . if i ever stumble on a bf OR a silverface, them things had better tickle my nuts. like anyone can tell ya. . . some are great. . . some. . . ain't so great. . . . save that dough for something else. . .Another test.
When I have both my DRRI w/ C-REX and the BFDR w/JBL at vol-5, treb-4,bass-3 1/2, the DRRI is significantly louder and more open. The BFDR sounds like there is a blanket over it(?). It looks like it has new caps, blue Spargue Atom. Am I missing something?
