Cliff,The Classic Reverb made it possible for me to finally let go of the last vintage "Holy Grail" amp in my studio. My '66 Super Reverb that I've had since '74 is now in the possession of Steve Snider's dentist, yes it's a small world.
The Classic nails the "SRV" tone, as well as any one amp can, and offers so much more. In my experience, it's hands down the closet thing to a refined, vintage Blackface that exits. There are others that have the perception of Blackface and many are incredible amps in their own right, but if it's true Blackface that you want, the Classic Reverb stands alone. It draws heavily from the Mayer amp but is not built with the NOS parts and pieces of the Mayer. It's also capable of a big open screaming overdrive which will make your favorite EL34 amp sound thin and top heavy until your ears acclimate and the beauty of the EL34 re-appears.
...and now, to ice the cake on Two-Rock's Classic line, I've worked with Bill and Joe in creating a monster that has the Classic Reverb (exact) as the clean channel, coupled with the Lead Channel of the Classic Type 1. It's the Overdrive Sig 50 and it can run in class A, a most important feature, and is the mother-ship of the Classic series. This is the amp I'm rocking in the studio right now and I couldn't be happier.
Do the two channel on the Overdrive Sig have their own separate EQ, or do they share the same EQ?
