I went to Ultrasound Tuesday. I played a brand new Cowtipper 22 alongside my 45, as well as with a VHT 45, Matchless Chieftain, Marshall TSL, Marshall 600, Bogner Shiva, DR Z Maz Senior with verb, older UG 30 and older Cowtipper 45. WHAT TONE!!!!!! Its the kind that makes you want to rip your cloths off and beat your head against a wall from pure joy!!!! YEEEHHAAA!!!!! Its bottom end is HUGE and TIGHT. Even with my PRS Rosewood neck on the neck pup, it styed crisp and clear. In single coil mode, the cleans were crisp, the top end had that incredible Tony Bruno detail, with out ONE bit of harshness! Zip, Bagel, goose egg, zilch, Zero, none. :AOK The amp is VERY different than the 45, while still staying in the Blackface arena. THIS is the amp the SRV heads NEED! It gives you the BEST blackface type cleans you can possibly imagine, and then turn it up, and THERE IT IS! Unlike the 45 which distorts like a Pro or Super reverb, the 22 gets that SWEET, BEAUTIFUL overdrive with no harsh tones at all. Crunch city! The reverb is.....one word....Bruno. That Bruno top end is magic. We were able to turn the treble up on the Cow and make it BRIGHTER Than the Chieftain, and still it sounded softer on the ears! How Bruno gets the tightness in the bass, the sweet mids, the detail in the high end, and no harshness is just incredible. All with that magical rubbery feel in the strings, that makes it CAKE to play dead clean. The mid and bright switches are voiced perfectly! Almost Dumble like with the mid switch on, and the bright switch just brings out more upper detail, with no harshness or overall change in the voice like the Fenders do. WHAT an amp! I ordered a 1\12 in White Tolex with Wheat grill cloth. THANKS KEN and Tony!
