"And, I had a [Fender] Tonemaster so that I could switch from channel A to channel B and get more drive, and it became my massive rock amp, with the Dual Professional as my clean, basic country amp, and I still had my Solo 75 for the Deluxe sound."
Bruce Zinky design that amazing amp for Fender before he left and formed his own company.The clean on the tonemaster is a lot like a vibro king but a hair darker.It works best with V30 speakers.
nah, Bruce is Zinky amps and Supro reissues (teamed up with pigtronix if I recall).... Dr Z is a different guy altogether who has a very different design aesthetic than Zinky
