    I was just downstairs playing both my Fuchs and TwoRock. I am going to sell both of them. :eek: I do not care for these types of tones anymore anyway. Im sure you are all very relieved. :D

    You MUST be kidding! I though you had a TR tattoo right next to the Bruno one! :D

    Now THAT I respect. Do your thing.

    P.S. - Not too many Brunos in these parts. I'd like to see what the "buzz" is all about. The clips don't do it for me, but I bet it's different playing through one, and dialing it in to one's own tastes.

    Keep this up and you'll lose your "amp ho" status!

    Ain't necessarily so...depends on how much thought you've given to this and if these are tools as opposed to toys,what will you get to replace them....just a thought,as it took me along time to figure out what worked for me(and now it works well,thanks). :cool:

    Not really. To each his own.

    Are you suggesting that if I don't grok the clips, then I won't like the amp no matter how I dial it?

    I am suggesting you are being generous. Which is consistent with the tenor of your postings on this board which I recall.

    I don't believe it. I think TAG is pulling our legs. :D

    Nope. In plain Tag talk, the Brunos flat out KILL them. :)

    Agreed. If you do not like the clips at the Bruno web site, you will not like them in person either. They are DEAD on the money. :dude

    In almost all cases I do try to be nice, but I do know that in the case of Two-Rocks, the dialing, tube complement, and speakers for that matter, change things pretty dramatically.

    I had a Rambler for a brief time, and I loved the tone from it. If they made a 100 watt version of that amp, with the same feel, I'd be all over it. I needed more clean headroom. Now I have a 100 watt Sig, which solved the problem nicely. Having said that, I hear such overwhelming praise for the Brunos, I can't help but to be curious.

    The superlatives I hear from Tag regarding the 45 and 22 lead me to believe I could be pretty happy with a CT100 and that 22.

    But who knows? I do applaud Tag's migration to his "core" tones, if that's what he's suggesting. I only own 2 amps. Don't need 20....

    I think you are right. I know a guy who gigged a Bruno UG30. I jammed a few times with him. He'd had it for years - probably one of the earliest ones. Pretty good player.

    He didn't sound that much like the clips on the site. Those all sound round and slick. This guy sounded more fiery than glowing and edge rather than sheen. Loads more traction and grip. If I knew that for sure he used that amp for recording I would point you at the recordings but I think he's used other amps for recording as well.

    well, if you DO decide to let the e.pro go, i'd be interested in possibly taking it off your hands :)

    So Tag, I'm curious.......... does this mean you're no longer enamored with those tones or that you get a better version of those tones with the Bruno(s)? Ie, do you use the Bruno to 'nail' Ford tones or do you just not go there anymore??
