I'm going to get one - it's just a question of time - high approval from you is gassing my gas !
I wanna snag the Fender Champ 30, but I can't go today. I have Regents prep and then brunch with my parents. No time to run up there. Blows.
that is a great deal ?
It's definitely a sweet deal. But I can't get out there today.
It'll be gone by next weekend, but who knows?
Not happy ...
maybe not ?
True. You never know.
Tied up tomorrow also. Maybe next weekend. I want it.
Remember...there is always another good deal around the corner. Maybe a much better one. Look for a bundle...guitar and amp.
I was looking between Quilter 101 & katana 100. I went with the katana 100. Partly cuz I'm a cheap s.o.b. and partly cuz I couldn't get my hands on a quilter to test out.
I'm very happy with the katana
I see very little love for the Valvetronix amps from Vox, so I will just add my .02 cents here.
I can vouch for the VT+ series and I hear excellent things about the VX series also. These supposedly "utilizes a genuine 12AX7 vacuum tube in the power stage." and they've been doing this for years and I've always thought it was a very convincing tube amp tone. All of the amp models I've used sound great, especially the Fender cleans (Fender Pro, Bassman, Twin Reverb are pristine sounding and have that glassy quality, Marshall amps sound amazing, and some of the high gain models are very useful; also it behaves much like a tube amp with the volume/tone knobs, etc.) effects are really top notch and more than sufficient. The Tubescreamer and Klon overdrive pedals as well as the Tremolo, Reverb and Delays are some of my favorites. On the VT+ series you can control the output wattage with a power level control, so you can use it easily for bedroom playing, recording or live venues. The VT80+ has a 12 inch speaker and maximum 120 watts of power and I don't think I need more than this!
Boss Katana 100w of course
If money isn't an issue, Boss Katana Artist. Just crazy good
I now have one of the first series that they made. An AD60VT, before the AD30/50/100VTs. They were targeting the pros with it. No dumming down of the controls, everything is there in the open and it's a beast.
Sorry but one post about the greatness that is Vox amplifiers wasn't enough!!
I have one and I agree...
Just make sure you try it and like it as much as me before you buy one, 'cause everyone is different, and some amps that others love I don't, and vice-versa. I don't want to end up on your s**t list.
Mustangs are incredible amps, but you have to like tweaking a small LCD display on deck or go to your computer to adjust things. I like twisting/rotating 3D knobs. Chicken heads in this case.
I just now remember that this one too has chicken heads, or maybe I should say tiny chick heads, and I love it.
A Katana of course! You get all of them in one! Well, at least close to it.
Not exactly. A Katana is not your common amp modeler. I don't think it pretends to emulate other amps like a Mustang would. I see it as a 5 channel amp with effects. It's got its own vibe going and it does it real well.
I agree that the Katana is not a modeling amp. It's definitely it's own thing but you can get some beautiful cleans and great overdriven tone. As was said, it's like having 5 amps in one along with a ton of boss pedals built in. Some of the reasons why I think it's the best SS amp made. Add in that it reacts and sounds like a tube amp vs most SS I've owned, and it's a no brainer to me.
Get the two button foot pedal for quick control over ch 1 (clean) and ch 2 (effexts).
The cables, box with pedal and cord store nicely in the open back.
For $199 it's a perfect for even a 'fast food worker' budget. On the teacher's salary you can also get the pedal and a new cord.
