    +1 for the Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb Blonde. I've had it for a few months now and it is amazing. Super versatile; of course the cleans are perfect. What I didn't expect is its performance with pedals. You can make this amp do just about anything you'd want an amp to do.

    Congrats on the Tone Master Deluxe Reverb Bond.
    Should be a great amp for you. Enjoy!

    I haven’t used an amp in years. And when I wanna play at home, it’s through amp sims and studio monitors. What is “good” is generally what you are “used to”. We all know an electric guitar plugged into a tube amp is a good sound. But there are many others as well. I can make you a recording that you wouldn’t have any idea if it was a tube amp or not. Sounds to me like you don’t need another amp tbh. Course…..I don’t need another guitar. But I keep buying them. LOL

    I bought my daughter one of those excellent amp! i wanted her to learn how to dial in her own sound on a good old fashioned tube combo rather than a digital amp with presets

    I still wonder how deep the rabbit hole really is. I can't seem to find the bottom. I don't imagine you have a visual on it yet?

    I can relate, I do mostly recording at home and the plug ins are amazing, I'm mostly a bass player and just got the Ampeg SVT and its sounds perfect. I used to mic up amps use a DI just too lazy anymore and the isolation problems and ground hum or buzzing not worth the trouble.
