Yeah, I agree with that too. Its a perception thing for sure. I love lower gain sounds I get out of my Dual Rec, its bright and crunchy on Raw or Vintage mode. Its just great for that type of sound and I love how it feels under the hands. The dynamics are really good. It would make sense though to go to a Vox or Marshall for that sophisticated sound. Certain amps really do well at certain things, and in the end and I think its safe to say no amp does everything perfect. I am going to watch the used market for the next couple years as well. If the Fillmore got discontinued or if they release some other 'vintage' style amp, I would be curious to see how it impacts the price. I would love to see it become a 'classic' like the Mark or Rectifier amps, but its hard to tell right now. I know I will get one at some point.
