    This sounds funny, I did not mean that, it was a typo, missed the “w”
    Yeah, 12-14 weeks is awesome, I have gone through 18 mos with another builder, love the builder, hate his schedule...

    No. Sure, most vintage Two Rocks are better than most amps out there, but the new amps are that much better than even vintage Two Rocks. The upgrades are a huge improvement, and I would not bother with a CR in your case.

    Comparison: the CR overdrive channel does breakup well but is a little woofy if you push it too hard, and the reverb is like a better Fender reverb but a lot quieter than blackface. The clean channel is great but compared to new...

    The stock Bloomfield is much more usable than a CR, and responds to guitar changes really well. The Bloom clean is responsive and supportive, the OD has beautiful harmonics ~ more than not only the CR but even more than most Dumbles I have played. Also, the Bloom also has an unreal reverb that smokes the old.

    If you are looking for the 40/20 Bloomfield Drive combo, I noticed Humbucker Music has one in stock. It's the black version. I'm holding out for the combo in the gray/blue scheme.

    The BD has the same new reverb circuit from the TC right? The reverb on the TC is truly something else. It's so natural, dynamic, and responsive, unlike anything I've ever heard from an amp.

    Correct. Eli confirmed this some pages back when the BF was released.

    I'm potentially looking to have TR make me a TC 100/50 combo- does anyone know if this is possible? Would likely also have a 1x12 extension cab made for it.
    Can you guys see any disadvantages to going the 1x12 combo route for the 100 watt version? I just like the idea of having it more portable when needed.

    Can I have a 4 x KT88 Bloomfield?

    Not that I'm greedy or anything.

    When I ordered mine, I ordered it in black suede, so I have already been waiting 9 weeks.
    Dealer updated me last week and said it will be shipping in 3-4 weeks.

    I am in the 13th week on mine, so yeah if 14 weeks to build, then I am 1 week away from rocking mine...
    With all those great clips and discussion and talk, I just couldn’t wait, kept thinking any day now, so finally I am in the zone.

    I'm in the 7th week, half way there for my bloomfield combo. Do the 40 watt two-rock owners usually run the 40watt mode or 20 watt mode when playing at home by yourself?

    I must have been lucky, when I was shopping for a new amp I found one in stock at The Guitar Sanctuary. No wait. Got serial number #9. 100w Version.

    I had the option to get a black tolex version right away, but since one of my TR 2x12 cabs is black suede, I could not resist. :)

    I have the TR 2x12 in black with Creambacks. It would be nice to have the matching Slate with blue piping 2x12's but I think I can live with it. I am curious on the sound difference between the G12-65b and the CB's with the Bloomfield. I like the CB but the Bloomfield cab is tempting.

    Not sure about the 40W amps' lower power switch, but on my 50W TR the low power mode is louder than full power.

    For anyone that’s on Instagram, check out TR’s latest story to see Matt Schofield ripping it through some of their amps. The second part with the TS and the old Schofield sig sounds phenomenal.

    Man - he sounds so damn good lol

    Isnt he running the Traditional Clean with his Sig in the 2nd part?

    Was that the TS by itself in the first?

    Sorry, typo on my end- meant TC + sig in 2nd part. Sounds so killer.

    Not sure which amp it was in the first clip, but it sounded killer as well!

    I am too. I ordered it today. I can wait. Mine as well have it look nice as well as sound incredible for the cost.
