    Just got this yesterday. As I mentioned in another thread, I just got the Tone Master Deluxe Reverb. I played it for several hours "stock." I figured out that I liked the tone of the normal channel better, so I went ahead and did the bright cap/reverb firmware updates, which were a big improvement for me personally. I actually probably won't use the onboard reverb much as I prefer more of a drippy reverb sound, but it makes the reverb much more usable at all settings.


    For my purposes, this is staying on the lowest power setting, where it sounds best at home volume levels, but it's nice to know there is more on tap.

    I did a few quick demos. Unfortunately this is just recorded through my phone as I have no recording software. Using my G5420T with T-90s. I used a Nocturne Dyno Brain and a Zoom unit for compression/slap back/reverb (I'll be getting an El Capistan for slap shortly, and possibly a Surfy Bear compact for reverb)

    I use mine on the 1 Watt setting at home. I find this lets me get the Volume up to the sweet spot which I've found to be round 4 on DR's.

    Every house is different but you won't find a location where this amp can't be made to fit. :)

    I must stop opening these threads......I really want one of those Tone Masters, but I have absolutely no need for one.

    .......Not saying that has stopped me in the past...:eek:

    No. I'm currently quite satisfied with my Strymon Iridium. I'm actually not even using the Tonemaster anymore(although I think it's wonderful for those who need real amps). Lol. Iridium is killer though!
