    Just some dude that was Clapton’s second guitarist for years, and played with Tedeschi Trucks, Sheryl Crow, Roger Waters, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and was buddies with SRV and Jimmie Vaughan when he was a kid.

    Yes, it's heavy like an AC30 or Twin Reverb amp. Does sound very, very good though.

    The Twin for the win. Easily repaired and modded, good basic clean tone, very reliable. Virtually every part of those amps can be found aftermarket. The MV is easily removed and even the UL models can be made to sound very good. That cannot be said for the other options.

    The master volume on Silverface Twins is pretty ineffective so you'll be getting a big, heavy, SUPER CLEAN amp that you won't be able to turn up loud enough to get any natural overdrive from.

    Hand wired is a plus for sure. One reason those old Fenders are still alive and kickin' butt and literally lasting a lifetime.

    If that's what you're after get the Twin.

    That way you'll save money because won't need a gym membership to work out.

    Twins are the ultimate clean Fender. Great amps if clean is what you're after.

    The Twin will do what everything you ask and you can push it until ears bleed. Plus the reverb is legendary....so.
    W O W . . . now that is good news !

    the mids knob is normal on the twin reverbs, bf or sf. you can bf any sf twin, the iron and speakers arent the same though, some just take more work than others. the hand wired nature of the amps make them very tweakable. and yeah, if youre used to a mesa roadking 2x12 combo, nothing is gonna be much heavier than that tank
