    Simple question: Aside from features, is the TC vastly superior in tone than the 5153 50w?

    No. They are very different sounds. One is definitely not superior to the other tonewise.

    I enjoy them both tonewise. The TC is far more versatile though.

    How would you describe their tonal differences?

    How would you compare it to the DD50 you had? Would it be kinda redundant to have both? I ask because I have a Rockerverb and have been eyeing a TC50.
