Have to agree , there’s really nothing for me that sounds like a good Fender tube amp
... I’ve had a Bunch over the years , but it was just so surprising how really NICE the Tone of the Bronco is , and it’s SS too
... Since I’ve also dabbled in making amps over the years (starting with Heathkits , remember those ? ) ... I’m just trying to wrap my head around Why
the Bronco sounds so darn GOOD !! Standard chips and all , nothing unusual .... It must be their method of tone shaping ... ?
As far as durability , I bought the amp back in the ’90’s new , played it a good bit at small club gigs and put it in the closet (favoring my old brownface Princeton) ... Couple months ago “found” it , plugged it in and was totally Amazed how Sweet it sounds ... By far now , my Favorite
sounding SS amp !!! The amp never faltered , no problems !!! ( It’s built like a Tank ) I LOVE this amp !!!
The lack of effects was never a problem because the amp seems to get along just fine with pedals ...
Am currently looking for another one locally , seen a few on Flea bay , but I’ve learned to test amps out in person , Before
I buy them ...
