Sure wish they had not let paul riviera touch these amps though, he kind of made them suck, the clean sounds are great, but what he was trying to do I do not know, I think he got away with murder, he did the same to the deluxe reverb i think, the thing is it never sounded good, and I am not sure how it was aloud out the door
To be fair, it wasn't Paul who designed the PRII, it was a guy called Ed Jahns (IIRC). They were going after the Boogie Mark series lead tone and I reckon they got in the ball park. The PRII is a great amp, as mentioned the cleans are excellent. The DRII isn't as good, despite the extra tone controls for the overdrive channel, it still sounds crap! The cleans are the same as the PRII (i.e. very good).
