BRONX

The Bronx is identical to the topology of the T-Rex. Except, being 6550-based, it requires more drive to push it into distortion. Thus, aurally, one may think that it’s less gainy. Because the 6550 can handle more plate voltage, the power supply is unleashed. The Bronx comes across thick and juicy.
