No hating on expensive please, this is meant to be an objective question, not a commentary on other aspects IYDM
They do increase in value over time, so a reasonable investment.
If you get one with a lot of features; cascading gain, tube buffered FX loop, contour, added EQ controls, expression ... you can get into a lot of different tone zip codes. If you can get three amps worth of tones, one might justify 3x the price.
Huge iconic cleans (or dirty cleans); is that's why most people like the most. I just found this video on the Redplate forum, comparing Redplate, Fuchs and Two Rock. Queued to the Two Rock (even though the Fuchs is shown in the background). I think the Two Rock is the best of the three.
So when you tried out the Two Rocks which ones did you try out and what were you comparing them to?Two Rocks cost between 3-5K euros in EU. Import costs and VAT aside, that’s a lot more than many far more complex US made amps. If they manage to sell at those prices, good for them but I just don’t see them being so special that I would pay that extra.
At the time (10yrs ago) I loved all that I had (SP35, Jet, Custom Reverb v.2 50W, Amethyst).No hating on expensive please, this is meant to be an objective question, not a commentary on other aspects IYDM
Where would one try a Two Rock, I didn't know they were in retail storesI got my first TR on here, a 10th Anni 50 watt, over 10 years ago now. I liked it so much I tried a bunch of different TRs; they were all cool but they all came and went. Bring your guitar and try a few, when you find the one grab it and don't look back, you'll be glad you did. They provide such a tremendous foundation.
