I like the sound.

Is there really a HUGE sound difference between 2 amps ? My ear is still not ready to detect those differences I think.

Between 2....similar amps or different amps?

Between to similar or identical amps, you would probably get the same tones, but if you for instance compare a Vox to a Mesa, you`ll hear a pretty solid difference in sound
