We all have opinions, I guess - I find the TLA100 to be pretty highly colored (something in the upper mids), especially compared to something like the CL-1B of Manley's ELOP. For my taste, I found it to be useless for bass and not extremely useful anywhere, exept in situations where I wanted to emphasize a little upper mid-range honk (snare and dobro come to mind).

Dave told me one time that he always thought of the TLA was 'barely useful'; compared to what he's done since, I'd have to agree.
