Like how they seem to sound a little meatier than a Vox, yet still have a nice chime.
I like the simplicity. For the last 10-15 yrs I've mostly played a little 20w USA Vintage Club, which works for me, but it really needs a bigger cab. Right now it needs tubes and prob caps, its not sounding its best.
But I've never had the oportunity to play a TT other than just a bit at GC, not an ideal situation.
I play very little hard rock. Most of my stuff is clean or just a bit of dirt.
How loud can you get before the amp really starts to distort heavily?
I dont play in a super loud band, but I need enough cleans to hang with a drummer(not a basher).
If it matters, I generally play a Tele, or some kind of med to low output humbucker equiped Epi.
Maybe I should get a Micro Terror first to decide if a TT or OH15 is for me?

WIth the gain at 3/4 depending on the pickups and volume up, the clean can be beautifully chimey with a nice edge, but as soon as the gain starts heading to halfway, you are into overdrive territory, which while sweet is not clean.

I think so. The speaker is a Celestion G12H.

I'd ditto what Frets99 said in that much past 4 will definitely OD, but it is a loud amp to begin with. Contrary to public opinion, the clean side of the TT 12 combo is really wonderful. No effects loop, but takes pedals really well too. Edit: I was going to suggest a test drive, but read your original post again and see that you did try one out.
