Once upon a time it was generally accepted that Fenders were for cleans, Marshalls were for dirt. In the pre-rack days I remember a number of guitarists that would have a Twin for their cleans and an early Boogie for leads. I've been looked at the thread concerning Fender's Tonemaster Twin and Deluxe Reverb. A lot is made of the attenuation feature which allows you to overdrive the amp at low volume. So you don't have to crank the amp in order to get that flubby, messy, undefined low end response. I've listened to the new Mesa California Tweed that'll do the same thing at a cost of several thousand dollars. To me, a cranked Fender sounds absolutely terrible. Almost like they have a blown speaker or something has gone horribly wrong with them. How many of you like your Fenders sounding like this ?
