Just wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to A/B these pedals? I have the 55. Had the 5 and SVT. One is suppose to be a tweed deluxe and the other a bassman amp in a box. Any preference? What do you think of the secret lead mode?

I have used both and the differences are essentially the differences you would find with either style amp. The amp style pedals from Cbread are pretty spot on. Howard and Nic were super crazed when they designed those circuits. They were aiming for perfection.

The F55 Tweed is much more compressed esp if you bank the gain up (think Neil Young explosion tone). the Bassman style 5f6 retains more head room but can still get nasty tweed grind but with slightly less compression.
