    Just spent some time with both again.. Club 40 has a bit more clean headroom but not very much at all.. 13 is eq'ed to bee a little more front and center in the mix. I'd expect if had a db meter there would be very little difference in levels with the 13 giving the perception of sounding louder

    Own the 10/20, love it- perfect volume for me. Heard and played a JJN, killer amp, way over the top for my context.

    Would LOVE to check out the 31 combo at guitar25, but man the 10watt setting on the 10/20 is loud enough, dont know what I'd do with 30+ watts!

    I'd say perceived gain is about the same but for flat out crunchy riffing the Club 40 gain structure is more what my ears want to hear.. that said for low volume semi clean I like the 13.. really depends on the music I am playing. If gig allows I like to use both of em! Their voicing is a bit different so they compliment each other. The 10/20 is definetly fender.with attitude while the club 40 is Marshall heaven. some of the other 13 offerings I am sure are gainier but the 10/20 is what I ended up with. The description of it being the little bro of the 37 is spot on.

    I am wondering how many of you guys actually play in a group setting when praising the JRT 9/15 ?
    I owned the 9/15 and played out with it a few times and that amp was just NOT loud enough in a group setting . It just plain disappeared on "the small stage". It was fun at home though.
    I also played-out with the 10/20 and it was damned near perfect!
    The 10/20 is Fred's best kept secret! :RoCkIn :eek:

    yes, I've said that before.........:cool:

    This is exactly how I feel! From the moment I plugged into the 10/20 I remember telling the salesman that this was the perfect amp! Total package of tone,features and usable volume

    I use the 9/15 amp in our church praise band and so far it is has worked very well for me. We currently meet in a large school auditorium and I do not think that the amp gets lost. This may not be the type of setting you are referring to, but it is a pretty loud little amp for what it is.:)

    I've only played a 9/15 and it was cool. I own a 10/20 and I like it better, it's my favorite amp I've ever owned. I've never even heard any of the others.

    I just found the 9/15 nowhere near the amp the 10/20 is in terms of volume, features AND tone but hey, that's me! :cool:

    Both are great amps IMHO, just different. I actually like them both so much that I want to own one of each.

    While we're on the topic of 10/20s, the reverb is nice but I don't really use it. Do you guys?

    Do any of the other /13 amps have reverb?

    Not to disrail this thread but that is my question--is there enough of a difference bt. the 10/20 and the 9/15 to own both???

    Does the 6v6 side of the 9/15 sound like the lower power of the 10/20? What is the difference?

    I use it on mine.. When I am able to use the 13 and my germino I run my delay line to the Germino and keep the verb up on the 13... and I believe the FRT 37 has reverb
