    I don't think this is a new Two Rock model, just a few one-off amps they are building.

    Sounds great, and pure TwoRock!! I love the way no matter what Two Rock amp you play in person, you can tell its a TwoRock. Just their own sound!

    VERY VERY GOOD!!

    I am not certain, but I believe Lance did those clips himself. He has a very tasty style.

    So Tag, I take it this is not the model you were testing in your thread on matching the Ford Dumble tones. Forgive me for being a little fuzzy on this, but it is somewhat of a challenge to keep it straight in a thread that has over 200 pages!

    I doubt it... this amp was just made and I think Lance is the only one with them so far.

    Is a new model. Very pricey and a completely amazing amp. I have one and after going back and forth with everything I own, this is definitely a keeper. Played it with my band the other night and the clarity and open full tones were really something. Great amp. I have played and recorded with SSS #1 and #4 and this is better than either.

    Steve

    You have access to an amazing array of great amps. Congratulations.

    From the clips it sounds like it could be noticeably louder than other Two Rocks. Is that the case?

    wow. I was waiting for somebody to make this amp. I've begged Andy Fuchs to make one. I guess nobody wants a clean amp these days...

    How different is it from the Sterling? I thought the Sterling was supposed to be the Trock SSS amp.

    Just wondering...


    (edit) Too Funny! Warren posted at the same time I was posting my reply!!

    How would you compare it to the Classic Reverb? I played a room last night where my Two Rock was sounding so good, that I just kept turning around and looking at it with a big smile!

    The control setup certainly resembles the Sterling Signature. I will be anxious to learn what the new fesatures are.

    As far as I can tell, and after talking to Lance...

    - The Sterling is a limited run, production TR. This new one isn't.
    - It's reasonable to guess that Bill Kirnard wanted to build another SSS and go in a new/different direction... try something new, etc.

    I don't know what one is better... I wouldn't mind getting together w/someone to A/B the amps. Would be pretty hard to do.

    Hey thanks guys..
    I did the clips at my house.
    While I have not had a chance to play a Sterling I have played a S amp or two and this amp is in the same camp with the real deal.
    I enjoy playing it a lot and it just has a huge tone.
    There is NOTHING that I have played short of a Singer that has had this sort of huge clean tone, and the FET channel just takes it over the top with Buckers, and gets it into SRV lead territory with a Strat.

    The Clips that I did were done with my strat, neck position clean channel, and then bridge with the FET.
    Then I did two more clips.
    Clean channel PRS DGT, and FET DGT.

    I have not done clips yet with a pedal in front but the amp does indeed eat pedals up. A great pedal becomes an extension of the amp itself and the amp does NOT lose any feel when using a a quality gain pedal in front.

    The great thing is that Joe and Bill are great guys, and can turn amps around in a couple of weeks max.

    This amp has been in Austin for a few days making the rounds with the usual suspects and all the guys down here think its great.

    Steve's right, not cheap...but darn worth two of anything else I have played living in the same wattage range and feature set.

    I'm just really excited about this one. Its a great time to be a guitarist with all of the wonderful choices out there.

    Quick Edit:
    This is a prototype. We are developing it and getting feedback. Steve has one and I have one right now...there aren't any others out there just yet but on the way.
