    I guess it depands on which amp do you use
    but IMO Tonebone is more real to me
    but for hi gain havey stuff V-stack is good too
    I own Tonebone both classic & hot British but I don't own V-stack
    so you better go with some one has both V- stack & Tonebone,
    to be fair, & I thing it is important that what kind of music that person plays

    Only tried the HB and Classic.

    From what I've heard, the tonebone Tri-Mode is better than the Classic in ever way. Having said that, I was duly impressed with the classic when I tried it out at the store. Unknowledgeable folk couldn't believe what I was getting out of an epi LP and a traynor solid state amp.

    I own a Hot British, and I can't see it going anywhere. It's such a great pedal and the best distortion-in-a-box I've ever heard.

    Never tried the V-stack series, it should be known. I would like to, though. Due to this, I didn't vote

    I've had the Trimode and it is cool but I went back with the Classic, I seem to gel with that one better!

    ...where the strings come in.
    haven't tried or even heard a tonebone although i see lots of good reviews. but it looks eerily(sp?) similar to the original issue h+k tubeman
    i used as my only dist. pedal for maybe 10 years.anybody remember the
    tubeman?

    anyway, i've been using the v-stack classic and tweedy since then.
    i may be uninformed,cause i don't buy as many pedals a some do,but
    they rock like AMPS. can't say enough good things about 'em.
    now,if he would just do an ac-30 tb without the brian may booster....
    i would be set.really.
    no,really...

    I didn't vote since I haven't played a Tonebone, but the only problem with my V-Stack Classic is that if I were to use it direct is that it doesn't get clean enough for me to get a good direct clean sound. Can either of the other V-Stacks get a great warm clean sound without going into crunch when I don't want it to crunch?

    Also, I was just comparing my Classic with my MI Audio Tube Zone. They are similar in tonal quality, versatility, and directness, but the Tube Zone sounds like a Dual Recto and the Classic, obviously sounds like a Marshall. Nice to have both. Makes me wonder how close the MI Audio Blues Pro/Blue Boy is to the Tweedy, and how close the Crunch Box will be to the V-Stack Classic.

    V-Stack - though I dig Tonebone's amp and cab switchers...

    (interesting that you'd choose two Canadian companies - though V-Stack did sell to Boston based First Act in 2005).
