    i frankly don't have time to search for someone to compare the TF550 to whatever, so here goes.

    i'm a big tone guy. i love all tube amps, i like deep, loud, crushing lows :bassist: , a good all around tone, edge, maybe some distortion.

    I play in a heavily drop-tuned metal band, an acoustic band and a pop punkish band.

    I am looking at the Thunderfunk TF550B, with the switch.

    will this amp get me what i need? (tone?)

    and i already know, the DI is amazing and will do me good :]

    Based on your description it sounds like you're looking for more of a Mesa sound.
    IMO the Thunderfunk can get very tubey and warm sounding but it has a very tight compressed low end.
    The basic design of the amp really works hard to keep it from distorting.
  3. +1 Mesa. Check out the M-Pulse.
