    Default deliverance 120 vs. 60?

    What is the differance between the two? can you obtain same volume from D60? I have a 120 and looking for another. Its seems D60's are much more available used?

    I have only owned the D120, but it's my understanding that the D120 has a bigger 'sonic footprint'. It just sounds more huge. Some people equate it to 'more aggressive and bigger'. The D60, according to support, sounds a little more like a cranked amp that is about to explode, which some people equate to 'more aggressive'. So I guess it comes down to personal preference. The D120 definitely has more headroom.

    I personally wanted the 'biggest' and 'thickest' sound, so I opted for the 120, although my Sig X sees most of my playing time.

    Curious about any tonal differences. Anyone have any shootout clips?

    Does 1 sound 'better' at relatively lower volumes than the other, or do they both need to be cranked up to live band volume and above before they start really sounding good?

    I tried both in a direct A/B with my guitar & a Deliverance 4x12 cab & much preferred the D120. But it was not like there was huge differences. They are very similar & it is only taste. Many prefer one or the other.

    This was the best I have found....
    " CLX has a single 12AX7 driver stage, a different power transformer, a different output transformer and Dual Class Mode. It breaks up easier and has a bit more give - besides the EL34 voice.

    UL does not have DualClass switch. Never did. Neither model has ever had Enhance Mode - the switchable tube/ss rectifier function.

    The differences between the 2 models has varied over time, but has been stable over the last roughly 10 years. See: http://www.fryette-users.com/forums/...-of-the-vht-ul

    Difference between the D60 and D120 is the driver stage. The 120 has a 2-tube driver/PI stage similar to the UL. The 60 has the single stage like the CLX. Preamp voicing is the same, but because of the difference in output and driver stage, the 60 sounds more pissed off compared to the 120 which sounds more like a bulldozer coming down your street." - support
    The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.
