I have an all tube 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb and a TMDR. The TM is as much like the real thing as you would want minus the tubes and the weight. Also, with the TM you have the option of changing the wattage from the full 22 watts down to 12, 5, 1, o.5, or even 0.2 watts. So one could crank the volume on that baby for edge of breakup or full on OD and then bring the over all volume down as far as bedroom levels. Pretty cool! Oh, and yes, a DR has MUCH better tone than a DeVille.
