I knew there had to be a catch at that price.
The third party transformers are that catch.
I'll reserve judgement on the sound, but for the price it seems decent.
Third Party Transformer what?
Not trying to start rumors. I haven't said anything that isn't confirmed above. Seemed like a catch when many other amp builders do turn to companies other than their normal partners to make more budget friendly amps i.e. the Judah from BadCat.Triad contacted me wanting to return to the guitar amp business.
Slightly off topics... but, as a customer -- a builder who takes the time to read/respond on forums like this deserves a huge pat on the back. This is customer service above & beyond. Often we read about companies who won't even reply to messages/phone calls. Dr. Z is as forthcoming and bold as is his amps tones!!!Third Party Transformer what?
Triad contacted me wanting to return to the guitar amp business.
I told them what I wanted and they built a wonderful sounding Output transformer built old style, wound on a stick, paper bobbin.
As you know Triad built all the Transformers for the Fender Tweed amps, as well as many other manufactures.
These trannies are build in the US, and are excellent iron, if I do say so myself.
Lets not start internet rumors Faded, Power Transformer are my tried and true Heyboer units.
Yes, I read the same description and downloaded the user manual, which is why I asked the question. Perhaps the master is before the effects loopor the level is a wattage (voltage) control? I want to know more specifically how it works and how they might interact....the master/volume adjusts the amount of drive....the output (which is called level in this case) sets the overall volume...
