26 ruger9 8 months ago " I can’t imagine B.B. King saying “wow I love the tone of these printed circuit boards!” " For the record, PCBs don't have a "sound". I totally get the easier-to-repair, more-durable, line of thinking with handwired amps over PCBs... but the "handwired SOUNDS better" myth has been debunked. Of course people hear what they think they hear. And that's fine.If I always had the $$, I'd always get handwired, for the reasons I just mentioned. But not for tone. Because it's not different... no different than 2 identical handwired amps are... it all comes down to component tolerances, for the most part, which still exists with handwired amps (as well a PCB amps).
