What I always wanted ...

Uwe193, 19.10.2017
... and never found it. Small, loud and so super sounding. I had played the little beast at the summit and was so off my socks that my next purchase was fixed. The 3-way "gain-structure-switch" makes the Pink Taco even more universal. In contrast, I play the amp only in the "Brown-Eyed-position", because this is what I like best. Contrary to some expert tips on trying with a different preamp tube in the first preamp section (5751 or 12AY7 by TAD) to get a longer, cleaner headroom, all I can say is: leave the PT as is, or buy one " F "-like amp, if you want to play clean. The Pink Taco is made to "kick". Of course you can get it a little cleaner with the volume control on the guitar.
Suitable for the bedroom amp is not suitable for living in a Mietswohnung only "nice neighbors" :-). It just needs a certain volume to enjoy the PTs. I have not missed a reverb / delay because the amp somehow develops an "organic reverb" from a certain volume. Only at home did I engrave a Holy Grail. I play the PT mainly with a third-open 2x12 box with greenbacks. Saugeil !!!!

Size is not everything!

maxx1010, 20.12.2017
Have the PT20 now for a while and am still totally excited and will be surprised again and again. Contrary to some other opinions, I feel this amp already flexible. It does not produce fender-clean sounds, but with the 3-way gain switch and the right combination of Volume & Master + guitars VolumePoti, that's going in a direction that's right for me. I'm using a Marshall 4x12 "Greenback box which can deliver decent pressure and volume for loud rehearsals and live gigs, but I did not know that 20 watts could be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Dave Friedman already knows what he's doing and we want to have musicians :-)
