PRS and Dumble amps. SO fine!!
Just picked up a very old friend of mine. A TwoRock Emerald Pro made in 2001. This was my main amp for a LONG time, and after 5 years of being gone, it just klind of fell into my lap again. Its every bit or better than I remember it. Cleans that can rival my Super reverb (No Dumble can do that IMO), and an overdrive that while a bit different than most Dumbles (Its a rare Dumble HRM circuit) can hang in there with even the best Dumbles. The sustain is sick, and it sings like a bird. Still one of my favorite all time, all around amps.. Listen here. You can hear those notes in the bends straining to get out, but the amp will not let them go! To much water flow for that size pipe!

Tag, that is the very amp whose clips (made by you) convinced me to play T-Rs for a decade. Glad you got it back!
Just a beautiful sounding thing.

I was not really all that interested, but he was so enthused, it rubbed off on my, and I actually bought it. Lol! In any case, I am glad I did. Few things in life are as good as one remembers from way back, but this is truly one of them. Not a bad sound in the amp, and just like I remembered, but a telefunken in V1 and the reverb slots, and it takes it up yet another notch. Just a sweet, unbelievably inspiring amp to play. Even if the exhaust hose is a bit too small for all that tone coming out! Strain on!
Congrats! Some tasty playing there.
Nice....fat and creamy tone. Um...I'd like to hear what I think is an L5 hanging up behind you.

That sounds wonderful! Great playing as usual....listening to your stuff always reminds me that I need to learn more than the typical rock scales....
Dig it. I'd rock one of those amps or a maybe a Nicky Morach signature.
OK Tag....you're a bad influence..... Had to go to the warehouse this evening and I combined this:
The ODS with the DGT in single coil mode is out of this world. I've got to put these two back into the gig rotation....

It does that, but for me, kills more acoustic tone than its worth in upper fret sustain. Sooo...this is probably a one off, and is perfect for me! I play it acoustically 90% of the time, and when you plug it in, I cant tell any difference between this and my old "regular" johnny Smiths anyway!
