Ok I've had a few days to spend with this amp, so I wanted to share my experiences. I agree with everyone who has said the cleans are phenominal! Glassy, fat, and rich. The reverb is as impressive as well. Probably the best reverb i've heard in an amp. I was torn on trying this out, because it is only a one channel amp. And I really have never been into pedals for overdrive, I always like getting that from the amp. The other 2rock I wanted to try was the Classic III, but there is no verb on that..and i am a total reverb whore. What I've found is there is a fair amount of drive/gain available when engaging the FET and the bypass. I am able to get some killer low/medium gain blusey tones outta this thing! IMO you do need to get a little volume going to have that sweet drive tone. Not a bedroom amp. (for the drive tones anyway) I can't wait to open this up at my next gig! The feel of the amp is terrific as well. It feels bouncy to me if that makes sense. IMO also the bluesy drive tones I get are similar to the lower gain tones I dial in with my custom reverb sig...it's different, but that sweet 2rock/dumbly lower gain tone is there IMO. I may be selling my custom reverb sig to an old bandmate, and I still am dying to try the type III. I was lucky enough to pick this up from a fellow gearpage member, and I think it's gonna be my #1 for a while. I'm kinda scared to try the type III, cause I think I'd have to find a way to keep both Big thanks to Joe and Bill for providing such killer amps and killer customer service to me over the years. I have bought several 2rocks over the years, both new and used, and these guys are top notch!
