Fair enough if you want to compare the Mood to any particular amp, or the Rude to any particular amp, but the only way I can see to make any meaningful comparison of the Rude Mood to anything else is to match it up against a dual-amp rig. Mine is set up to work like a Super/Deluxe (Mood), and a Bassman (Rude). My vintage Deluxe does something very special, and still has a place at the table, but I can't even begin to imagine lugging around a Super and a Bassman to gigs. For me, that is the ultimate compliment; Randelli gave us a legit Fender-style multi-amp rig in a box that is smaller than my Deluxe. Thank you, Randy!
