    TS1 is the Two Rock take on an ODS.

    So how about the Bloomfield? ODR?

    I know the TS1 is based on the ODS but to me it looks like the Bloomfield has those characteristic. I did read that the Bloomfield has a clean channel similar to the Classic Signature Reverb.

    From what i have gathered, the Bloomfield is also in the lignage of an ODS, like the TS1.

    Both are voiced differently enough so that they are not exactly the same - especially the clean channel, but this is super important since the gain channel cascades on the clean -, but the main difference is that the Bloomfield has reverb.

    Anyone who's played an ODS cascading gain style amp will know that it's tricky to use reverb with them as it will go from subtle to a huge splash when switching channels. Two-Rock has remedied that problem with the Bloomfield thanks to some Krinard wizardry.

    I would have thought more the lineage of the CRS.

    It is, but isn't the CRS itself on the lignage of the ODS? I am not talking about voicing, since each ODS was voiced differently anyways, but rather the mecanics of the amps themselves - i.e. the whole cascading thing which is typical Dumble. I might be wrong though.

    No, I think that's fair.

    'ODS inspired' I suppose.

    Very nice. Sounds like a 70s D circuit...

    I like what I heard. But preferred the cleans from the
    traditional clean and distortion from burnside. But thought the switches was really cool and offered awesome possibilities. Plus it looks amazing

    MmmmHmmm...
    Ya think?
    I find it difficult to believe this.
    Yup
    It’s a discussion board and you don’t make the rules. Using a dead rock star’s name without compensating his family is distasteful IMO. Find another street name. Or another rock.

    I honestly dont know - but did bloomfield even use D-style/cascading gain type amps?

    I did not think so - if not, its not like TR is somehow trying to associate his tone with this style amp. What would be the point.

    I don't know if your familiar with Johan Segeborn's YouTube channel but the guy is a real treasure, particularly to anyone into vintage Marshalls and greenbacks.

    You seem to have more high end new amps than even the best stocked upscale music stores. If you ever have the inclination to share this via YouTube and say create a virtual amp museum, I think it would be wildly popular with many guitar players. Even for yourself, it could provide you with a great resource to be able to immediately reference tonally all of your amps.

    Congrats on the Bloomfield

    Mike Bloomfield had a raw tone and it bites you in the #%@ and I love it, but I dont see any association with the Two Rock amp and Mikes work and tones. We have heard a few clips of this amp. TR has stated where the name came from for the record, they are not trying to take any thing away. The name Bloomfield is free to use, you can name your child or your instrument. There is no wrong done here.

    You don't make the rules either. Not here and not at Two Rock, where they named the amp what they wanted. You opinion is your own and so is mine.

    Its the street that Bill Krinard used to live on for decades, and where Bill and Joe M first started Two Rock; in Bill's garage where he lived at the time.

    Two Rock has a long tradition of celebrating towns and streets associated with certain circuits and players (Mulholland Drive, East Cliff Drive, Oak Cliff Special, etc) and this just happened to be the street Two Rock was founded on. No connection to Mike Bloomfield, nor would Two Rock benefit from such an association. I understand and respect your concern, were TR invoking MB, but it is coincidence in this case.
