    Good! :) Used it live this weekend and it is by far my new favorite fender in the box! Hit it with a BB Pre and sounds just KILLER!

    Seriously, and I just love the fender brown amps! :) Can we have more? Please? :)

    THANK YOU!!!

    Sorry it's #5 1x12 Brown M160 (UR)...it's a new factory stock cab included in the latest firmware.

    It's the best IR I have used for that brown-era fender sound.

    Update: the Wiki says "Vibroverb" but I can tell you it sounds great with the Vibrolux!

    Sorry for the confusion! My bad!

    Thanks for the IR identity :)

    I will check that one out for sure.

    Nothing has unseated my 2x12 Tom's Mix IR's for Fender amp models. They are from the first Universal Noise cab pack (the Tom's Mix Left is free but I use the Left and Right IR in my goto Fender patches).

    It's a Vibrolux. That IR is from my personal 1962 Vibrolux. This is the amp used on Dire Straits eponymous album. I'll say it again: the Mic+DI technique yields IRs that are vastly superior to other techniques. I use nothing but the new IRs now. Even the venerable TV Mix has been replaced.

    I'm really looking forward to the new Universal Storage cab pack.

    2x12 Tom's Mix L and R are my goto IRs from the first Universal Noise storage cab pack for Fender amp models. I'm hoping this same Cab will be there in Mic+DI glory :)

    I would doubt it. We have had UR for a while and not all factor cabs are UR. I bet moving fwd the new technique will be the one used to capture IRs though
