Are these amps really similar? Any big differences? I'd like to get an amp that does the < 20 watt vox and marshall thing and has the ef86 on the Vox side.

I'm leaning toward Tophat because it's seems like it's smaller and would be easier to gig with. Some of those 65 Amps heads seem huge.

Anyone compared the two?

I am a big fan of the Top Hat. Great tones on both sides of the amp.

Another Top Hat fan here. Although I've never played the Supreme 16. You probably couldn't go wrong with either, IMO.

I used to own both with respective matching 2x12 cabs. They certainly sounded similar but the 65amps was bigger sounding with more clean headroom while the Supreme 16 broke up sooner. I preferred the Top Hat in the long run. My favorite setup was my guitar -> Klon Centaur -> Fulltone Tube Tape Echo (split stereo) -> The dry signal going to the Top Hat S16 w/ 2x12 cab (Celestion Blue/G12H)-> wet signal going to Swart AST combo that I ran the output into a Top Hat 2x12 with a pair of celestion blues = Epic tone!
