Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Both seem to be "gainy"

    I have yet to hear clips of the Homebrew

    The EMMA sounds a bit on the thin side, but those were just clips I heard, and it could've been the amp, too

    I've never owned a Big D.
    But I do own the Reeza and have had it for a long time.
    I can tell you that it is FAR from thin sounding!! Some people have even had issues with it because it's TOO thick and has TOO much bass.

    Word has it that the EMMA PCB is "gooped up" to prevent reverse engineering.

    What are the chances of it having to get worked on anyway?

    There are clips of the Big D on Homebrews site.

    first impulse (still need to revisit) is that the Emma sounds a bit more "pedaly" than the Homebrew

    i own a Big D..it's not as gainy as you think..definitely not metal-heavy but will cut it for hard rock..plus the five sounds from the diode select switch are all very useable..the first four sounds are basically different types of overdrive to distortion sounds and the last is a fuzz-like tone..add to that gain+tone controls for each diode and you've got quite a selection..
