I want to know the difference (technically) between the two amps. I know one has 50 more watts... that's about it. Im not even asking for price, and aren't sure to look at these thorougly yet, so dont get on my case
I understand tone is subjective, but could someone compare the tones of the two? Is the Triple Meant for more gain and a more agressive style of play?
Thanks

Nope, Triple just has more volume. Unnessesary volume at that.

You don't need 150 tube watts.


I'm like freakin half deaf and I can get my 120 head to make even my ears hurt horribly. (And to get my ears ringing you have to get really ****ing loud, I don't even consider most major concerts painfully loud)

I completly agree there. Hell, I wouldnt need to push 30W Tube. I just wanted to know if there is any tone difference between them. It seems useless to pay $1000 more for 50 watts that you will probably never get much use from.

the knobs all go up to 11, if you ever need that extra push

So finally (thanks guys) there is no real tone difference? All volume and headroom you won't need?
#9
Yeah thats basically the only difference. I doubt 100 tube watts will get used, a single rec would be enough.

3 extra tubes is the difference. The slogan for the thing is "When excess is barely enough". And, the triple isn't 1000 dollars extra, it is 100...

I played a rectoverb 2x12 combo and was DAMN impressed!

^^ also it only has ss rectifier, while the duals/triples have both ss and tube rectification

The triple has more clean headroom than the dual + has an extra rectifier tube, giving more sag. And the whole not being able to use all that volume, most of the gain comes from the preamp, so you don't need to crank it all the way to get the best of it.
Now with the single rectos/rectoverbs you'll get more power tube saturation out of it, they sound lovely cranked.
I would get a dual over a triple just for saving more money, 3 less tubes you have to replace whenever you decide to retube it. Honestly i've played the two and i don't really remember that bit of a difference, the triple may have a little more guts than the dual, but i dont think by that much. Also considering getting a triple, if you have that much money, you might as well save up 100 more dollars and get a Roadster. 4 channels of pure sex
I'd say if you get a chance play both the dual and triple, see which one is better
