I've been waiting on the Budda for a month now. I just got word that it will be shipped in 4 weeks. However, the guy is offering me the Badger in case I do not want to wait. (both are head versions that I will use with a closed back 2x12) My question is: How do the 2 compare for everything from Texas blues up to classic hard rock (UFO, Thin Lizzy, etc). I will be using a HSS Fat Strat and have no problem with using an OD pedal to get me the heavier stuff. However, I'm curious how the gain stacks up between the 2 amps ? I rarely play out and the amp will be used mainly for home recording. Any comparisons will be greatly appreciated.
