Marshall DSL 40c
Yamaha THR-10. A slick salesman talked me into it. I love Yamaha stuff, so I tried really hard to like it. However it turned out to be one a the worst sounding amps I ever played. Couln't get rid of it fast enough.For me, it's my roland JC-120. It has a lot of hiss, and I never use it. Plus, it weighs more than a marine mammal. I could have bought a nice used low watt tube combo for what I paid for it, and I regret buying it. I started with a Roland Cube 30 when I was a kid, and thought it would be a useful studio tool, but it doesn't work very well with most od pedals, being that it is solid state.
Any amp purchases you regret?
War, you didn’t really state why you got rid of the amp, though it sounded like it was due to reliability, And couldn’t tell if you had an actual problem , if you felt that it might because of the construction. The reason why people might want to know this is that it might help them to make a decision about a product, if they were considering it. Not that anyone should or shouldn’t buy anything based solely on my opinion, it might help them in their process. I wouldn’t assume anyone is attacking or that you’re in a position of needing to defend yourself over the questions.
There are many amps that do metal better, but for classic rock to hard rock the SLO is right up there.I can tell you this..when it come to classic Rock and early metal, nothing out there touches the Soldano. I think some of you guys have an attitude about expensive amps. Remember this..I'm spending my money not yours. God knows I've worked hard enough and have earned it.
I'm more of a Classic Rock and Blues player. but hey this thing nails Priest, Krokus and all the older stuff I love... it's right there. Also anther thing about this amp is how it feels under your fingers. That is something it has in common with the Suhr SL67. I also think that is some of what you're paying for.There are many amps that do metal better, but for classic rock to hard rock the SLO is right up there.
I've heard videos of those amps and they sound really nice to me. I think it's name.. Fillmore is very fitting to the tone.Mesa Boogie Fillmore 50. Excellent clean and overdrive sounds on the clean setting. Yeah, I know, Randy designed it that way. I love the amp and feel it is as top quality as you can get in a smaller combo package these days without spending $$$$.
I found it too hard to dial in. Probably user error. Plus, I don't think it agreed with the guitar I was playing at the time (1991 PRS CE 22 Bolt on alder body).
I'm more of a set it and forget it type. Once I realized I could use a Fender DR as a clean platform and pedals for my dirt I've never looked back. YMMV.
