Tungsten Crema Wheat vs Tone King Imperial?

Anyone ever have both or ever A/B them? I know the TK is dual channel, and a bit pricier, but they both have that "Tweed on Steroids" thing going on...

NOTHING alike.
The Imperial is really a blackface amp and it does have a lead channel that's supposedly tweed based but will never sound anything like a real tweed which the Crema can do somewhat convincingly.
I've owned both.

Imperial is very bright and nothing like a tweed/ its also PCB built verses old school 50's tweed Deluxe type of build that will last for 60 years plus, no problem

Had both as well, nothing alike/ Tungsten is really the one to go for

Imperial perhaps a more versatile gigging amp due to the dual channels?
Btw, ideally I'm shooting for guitar-cord-amp

I have a Tungsten Cortez and it sounds so musical and raw compared to the Tone Kings. Sometimes i wonder if the people who say TKs can do tweed have actually ever really played thru a tweed amp. To me the TK tweed channel sounds more like a modeled tweed than an actual tweed, and not just on dirty stuff, moreso the clean.
