    I won't be suprised a bit, I sure loved his TriAC pedal so I assume that I will like this even more.

    Well, my buddy is going for it. I can't wait to try it out when he get's it! Now he's selling some of his old gear so if anyone is looking for an avatar cab check out the Trading Post.

    i can get both for about the same price on e-bay...?
    Good one! I tried both the Roland and the TM10, and as you know, i got the TM10, The best little amp i tried in my life! The roland isn't that bad but if you want the best, buy the Tech 21! Belive me!

    Best Overdrive and Distortion i have ever heard coming from a 10w amp! You can get very smooth overdrive, then drasticly turn the drive knob to full and get a crunchy distortion tone that rips everything! ( )

    Amps you can get are Tweed (Fender), British (Marshall) and Calif (Mesa, i think?). After that you choose Clean, Hi Gain or Hot, than at last you choose elements, Flat, UK or US. Then it's the Bass, mid and high knobs, which is great, it's like the knobs of a good wah-wah pedal, a little touch and you squeeze out every little thing!

    The spring reverb is great! It's like a really good old tube fender!

    Got my TM 10 yesterday! Wonderful! I stop using my Boss Blues Driver and my Proco Rat 2 last night, the overdrive and distortion is one of the best i heard!

    Oh, by the way, the Spring reverb is great, the settings say you should have it at 12 'o clock to play SRV, AC/DC and Metallica, i put it at 10-11 o' clock and did get a better sound!

    The T120 loves single coils. I had a blast with that Van Halen preset, pretty articulate, decently high gain tone.

    The cleans are better than most amps around, although I'd easily take a Fender Twin or Deluxe Reverb over it. The reverb is good, just not as lush as the one on my Vibrolux Reverb.

    However, all around it's a great amp... especially for the money. It gets two thumbs up from me

    Jumpin' on the bandwagon and answering the first question, I think the reverb on the TradeMark 10 is amazingly good. So much better than the reverb on the Blues Jr. it isn't even funny.

    Just didn't want Terry & Hoss to be lonely as Tech 21 fans

    Thank you as well, I just talked to my friend on the phone and he is gassing heavy now. The more that I look at the specs on the 120 the more that I am starting to gas about it as well. Hmmmm.......think my wife would get me another anniversary present after already getting me my Tele? LOL!

    Now, I don't wanna interupt your obvious domestic bliss, but my Tele into my TM60 on the Fender setting is really a thing of beauty!

    I know guys around here are probably sick of hearing me go on about these amps, but I really think they are VERY under-rated, especially for the price!

    The TM10 is a wonderful little amp, but no footswitch. If you or you friend has that Tri-AC, you could set the TM10 on the Fender clean & then program the Tri-AC for 3 more channels.

    The TM60 moves up to 60 watts w/2 footswitchable channels...add a Power Engine, which is an identical 60watt powered 1x12 cabinet, & you've got a 60w 2x12 powerhouse. Throw that Tri-AC in the mix & things can take off!

    The TM120 is 3-channels @ 120w...'nuff said!!! Throw the Tri-AC on it & you've got 6 channels to choose from!!!

    Just one note of caution: to get the most out of any pedals, make sure you use the cleanest channel you can find & let the pedals do the work. With the TM60 & 120, hit the boost button on the footswitch & you'll kick it up quite a bit. The boost function, for solos, increases the volume level up to 9dB without altering your tone.

    Good luck...like Hoss said Peanut butter just ain't the same without jelly!!!!!

    tell her it has a special "tele" setting and that a tele without a 120 is like peanut butter without jelly...LOL!!!

    seriously though...go for it!!!

    I do believe that she would hang me from the nearest tree if I tried to sweet talk her into anything more. J/K, she's an awsome lady. Thanks again for the input.

    I played around with the TriAC through my JCM 600 a couple of weeks ago and LOVED the Blond Bassman setting listed in the manual. Got to love that analog! Will the quest for tone ever end.........????? Serenity NOW!

    If you or he is looking for that clean classic Fender tone, this reverb ROCKS !!!
    The cleans are what shines in the TECH21 line. The dirty channels are very good, but it's the cleans that are STELLAR. Throw an O/D pedal on it & you'd think it was a Fender Twin.

    And I've said it before & I'll say it again: If the Trademark 60 is good enough for Les Paul himself, it's good enough for me!!!

    HAHAHAHAHA....Hoss beat me to it!!!
