View Full Version : Small SS amp "pedals" - options?
07-14-2012, 07:24 AM
What's out there these days? I'm aware of the Traynor QuarterHorse and the Electro-Harmonix Magnum 44. Anything I'm missing?

I found another! I know nothing about it, though.

The new Ethos pedals come with a 30W SS power amp as an option, and speaker jacks. Haven't tried one, but I would imagine it blows these ones you listed away.

Wow, the clips on the Ethos site are wonderful - best canned web site overdrive pedal clips I think I've ever heard! But I don't see a power amp.

AMT has all those preamp pedals and that "Tube Cake" solid state poweramp pedal.

Cool! The demos I found for the Traynor and the Diago were impressive in different ways.
Burgerman's Diago demo:
Glen DeLaune Quarterhorse demo:
I currently have the 3 watt AMT Tube Cake and it's neato with some decent clean headroom but obviously needs a preamp to be workable. I've been using it with a Zoom G3 in front of it for compression, EQ, and preamp tones--then I feed it all to a 1x12 cab. Sounds pretty great, especially with my hand-wired spring reverb unit after the Zoom but before the Tube Cake. An Ethos in front of it is quite great, too.
