    They need to amend the title.

    Holy trinity of *current* Two Rocks.

    But that could upset the SSS crowd, I don't think they can win on this one, maybe the three two rocks we have in at the moment ha ha

    Out of these three, the classic reverb signature sounds the best to me for what I play. Love the video.

    The 3 that are the best selling models according to Peach, it was not just any 3....or any current 3, ....

    The black vox grill cloth with silver face panel and black suede/tolex looks sexy...

    Hell yes that thing looks awesome, play the hell out of it, it gets better and better once it gets broken in a bit. It looks like you are no stranger to the joys of the small, one speaker combo. I went from AC30, Fender Super and Marshall superlead with a 4x12 to the Bloomfield combo and just the joy of a grab and go has increased my happiness in playing tenfold. The same thing happened when I mounted all my guitars on my wall, just having easy access to them really increased my personal satisfaction levels as a guitar player, I play out way more, more likely to take my amp if I go away on the weekend to the beach house, I don't get down by the thought of trucking big heavy amps everywhere, I'm not a very inspired player if I don't have enjoyable tone so having a grab and go has connected me to playing out with so many friends I haven't jammed with in a long time etc and with the Bloomfield combo I don't feel like I am sacrificing anything with the smaller size because it sounds big compared to many similar size amps, a big two rock might sound better but I'm not at all bothered by it enough to find out, because what I gain in a grab and go just delights me so much. I have the feeling if I had a CLRS I would care more about having 6L6 rather than 6V6 as I'm so used to my super reverb but with the Bloomfield I don't mind the 6v6 as it's a new tone for me to play though, I don't reference it as being annoyingly not right, the way modern fender strats annoy me because I'm used to playing a pre cbs strat compared to being less annoyed when I play my mates PRS silver sky because it's just it's own thing the details I'm not used to don't annoy me so much, also with 6V6's the creamy lead channel a Les Paul is insanely fun.

    My comment above was also in reference to this question below. Not functioning well due to lack of sleep, due to the cricket world cup.

    I'm no recording expert, but even with headphones on, the way they recorded that video seems to not really do the amp justice.

    I agree, just didn’t sound good, and I own 2 of the 3, so I know how they sound...

    ^ Way too much compression and dialing in very generic clean tones.

    He was actually quoting the post of the SSS demo. But I agree the Peach video didn’t sound very good

    Oh ok, yeah the TR were not given justice on that clip, if I was buying based on that clip, I would have definitely passed.

    After a lot of research and reading this thread, I ended up getting a Traditional Clean!
    I'm really liking this one. It reminds me of the old Classic Reverb and Studio Pro but has an extra something to it that those did not have. Almost like a bounce to the notes, it's hard to put into words. Anyways, thanks guys for the info to help me get this amp!

    Excellent choice, in hindsight I think I would have been extremely happy with the TC if I went that way but the BD was hot at the time I ordered so I was swayed that way, don't think I can lose either way, wish there were more Two Rocks in my country to try.
