    I mean, I can make it easier even. If you buy it, don't like it, and will within 2 weeks ship to me in Tokyo, I'll pay that price and $100 for your trouble as well.*

    *offer dependent on overall condition, visual specs, and tubes.

    No! Don't do it! That's about as hard as I can try to stop you. I see no point if you're already happy with your Engl. If you know you can accept any potential losses if not happy with it after trying it then go for it. I find that after spending even a few moments with an amp I can almost immediately tell if it will be something I'm into. I still try it out thoroughly, but I'm usually right about it. It's that vibe amps can't lose no matter what you do to them. It's either for you, or not. Maybe watch some videos carefully of it and pay attention to settings and pickups in guitar etc. to make sure before going through with it? You can kinda tell actually, like with a Marshall, Boogie, 5150 etc. They all have a vibe they can't shake. This amp will be the same. I wouldn't buy it though. I'd save the money.

    I was gonna drop this sage wisdom... "You're a guitar player, not an amp player, get the guitar." - @JoshuaVonFlash

    But...

    Kind of hard to say no to that. :yesway:

    if you can swap few things to make cash back, go for it. but that's just me, I started to justify my GAS in this way - if I really want something, that I don't really need, but I can make enough $ by selling stuff, that I won't regret, then I go for it.

    personally I'd go Bogner over Engl any day.

    Here at SS.O we pride ourselves in helping people make sensible, rational decisions in the name of gear acquisition. Here's my part:

    You'll never truly know how the Uberschall sounds until you buy one and take it home. #wink

    You want me to talk you out of it? Ok. Buy an Archon instead! :D

    Seriously though, i almost bought a rev blue, but I'm so glad i went with the Archon. It was significantly cheaper, and the Archon sounds just as good (if not better).

    Either way, the TJ is an amp for life. You can't go wrong with it.

    Gmork, you'd have to be stupid to not take this deal.

    Woah, it has the black control plate? Awesome! The black looks so much better than the standard white IMO.

    Nothing sounds like Bogner, as nothing sounds like Engl, twinjet is cool, two very useful channel and takes boost well too, so just shut up and buy one.

    Its a scientific fact that if you dont have an active thread about the new amp youre waiting for then your body will literally turn itself inside out so lets keep this going!!

    Ok ive been reading/hearing SO many things about the twin jet. Ive heard its the most chest kicking bone crunchingly brutal of all the uberschalls, ive heard people say the other uberschalls are the meaner ones, that the tj is just a glorified recto. etc and so forth...

    So heres the thing, my twin jet apparently has 4 svetlana 6550s and 6 tung sol 12ax7s. WHAT CAN I EXPECT as far as brutal chuggy stuff goes?
    YT clips suck. Some sound crazy good while others sound understandably like phone cam garbage.
