    The Guitar Max super shredder dude likes this budget tube amp. In the $200 range I think ... Name brand too

    Amp's features, tone ability, quiet and very loud capabilities are explored and described in the video review.

    You.

    I like you.

    That's probably my favourite of all of Leo's covers. He nails it.

    Of course I also have a thing for Norway in general so he gets bonus points for that.

    Off topic, but I thought I was the only one who thinks this. Everytime I mention it, people give me a funny look. As if they had no clue about the EMF waves bombarding us 24/7 from all angles!

    Im bored so I figured id spew on about the solid state amplifier...

    It doesn't seem to cross many peoples minds when they start thinkin solid state amps but there was a moment in time where companies decided to go cheap...

    It wasn't just 1 either... It was like a mad dash to the cut corner finish line and the field was full... Amps, guitars and pedals... That moment in time was the late 80s...

    Guitars go from wood to ply. Companies tell other companies like Gotoh to find new buyers and start replacing higher end tuners on their stuff with much beloved traps... Cabinets go from wood to compressed whatever. Electronics, spring verb tanks, speakers, trem blocks, saddles and on and on it went... Wherever they could cut a corner on the cheap stuff they cut it...

    Which leads us back to solid state amps... The ones that are often mentioned as being among the best quite often share a lot of traits. Quite often they were built before that late 80s cut corner movement took hold... And quite often they also involved a decent spring verb circuit along with either a nice limiter/comp circuit or trem/chorus circuits...

    There was a combination of pieces and parts and etc that limited the opportunity for bottlenecks to screw up the end result... They have built a billion solid state amps where this wasn't the case... Quite often a builder will cut so many corners on a solid state amp that by the time u get to the end result u have run thru 5 or 6 bottlnecks and achieve a sound that shows it off...

    This is why say early/mid 80's Peavey are such a bargain when it comes to solid state. People almost give them away. Yet the pieces and the parts they were built with can achieve a decent sound if you throw the kitchen sink at the amp...
