You shouldn't feel like you have to switch. They make both amps for a reason, and if the Electra Dyne is your thing then there's no reason to look any further. You know what they say, if it ain't broke...

I agree, I personally feel the Electra Dyne is a better sounding amp. If it had the soak option, it would be killer.

The kicker for me was when I had a $400 Ibanez RG3120 that sounded MUCH better than a $2400 Suhr Koa standard. While LP's are very inconsistent, I'd still grab one for hard rock tones, or a good PRS over a Suhr.

But yes, my favorites are Anderson. I've got a Drop Top and a Bulldog.
One mans bright and thin, is anothers clear... One mans warm and fat is another's muddy... It's all good. I think we can agree that all of the above mentioned guitars are great. I try to mix things up for the videos, but you'll primarily see me use Suhr and PRS... Occasionally my Les Paul.

BTW, much love for Anderson guitars. Exceptional instruments, with an equally exceptional company and crew standing behind them.

the RA does sound great, but I'm not changing my ED over. I'd like to own an RA as well and may well when they start turning up second hand. The ED and RA complement each other, with the ED being more USA sounding and the RA more British.
