At $400 for a flat top the Mid Mo will be better for a hundred fifty or so more. I have the TC Octave and like it ok. If you ever had issues with the Mid Mo I'm pretty sure Mid Mo would be there for you much easier than TC (an import). That said, they seem to be one of the better import flat tops.
My OM was set up by the people I bought it from, plays nice, has an OK tone for what it is (large production, all solid flat top) it sounds good. I'm glad I have it.
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith, 1865 - 1946
