Im an oooold school guy forever playing on tube amps. I'm also used to going into the store plugging my guitar in and if I like it; I take it home. With the virus shutting down pretty much everything music, I have had to rely on reviews and word of mouth recommendations. I decided just to go for the Tonemaster from Fender and I have been so pleased with the rich tone of this amp. I haven't put the attinuator over 1 watt because I have no live bookings right now, but I'm sure it's going live up to any venue I need it for in the future. Beautiful sounding amp at a reasonable price! And it weighs an unbelievable 23 lbs. reverb and vibrato are lush and spacious.
