Yeah, I really need to try these side by side. As best I can tell, Fryette are the tightest, driest amps available. And since I’d have to buy used, I don’t have a lot of option for comparison. But, I’m also thinking maybe of going for the KT88 tube versions, and at least that way I can have two different flavors, especially if I keep my 50CL. I am going to try the midrange before preamp, and scoop after preamp, thing, though, and see if I can EQ it to be super punchy. My fear is that I’ll spend another $1000-$2000 on an amp that sounds virtually identical to what I have already. Half of the comments online say you can dial in the 50CL to sound like the 100, half say they’re night and day different. That’s probably what I’d find for any amp that has a 50 and 100 watt model.
