I had my guitar plekked and was offered the chance to try it out in an insulated amp room at the shop. There was a Fender DRRI next to a Tweedy Verb so I got to try them both side by side. I can say with confidence that darn thing was literally the best sounding tube amp I've ever heard. Holy mackrel. If you didn't see how small it was, you'd think it had 10 speakers pointing in all directions. I tried out the blackface setting with my tele and had classic pure bright jazzy goodness. Played an A major 7 at the 5th and let that thing ring -- wow. I cranked the voice knob over to Tweed and started sound double stops on the tele bridge, I was trying to see how much dirt I'd get out of it. Wow -- this thing is just resonant and wonderful I was truly blown away -- and fricken tiny too. I plugged into the DRRI right next to it and while it delivered everything you'd possibly ask for in an amp, I just don't think there's a comparison. Red Plate is fricken' ridiculous. Seriously. Anyway, I may have to buy one -- that thing is off the charts. One thing I noticed though, was the amp had a fair bit of ambient noise and each "bell & whistle" such as more gain, more verb, more presence, etc really bumped up the ambient noise. It's possible that I just am picky now given I play a Quilter at home and it's dead silent. Fascinating stuff -- great times.
