    I just picked up a brand new Elmwood 3100. This thing is the best amp I've ever had the pleasure to touch! I've had Herbert's, Elmwood M60 and M90, Engl., Bogner Uber, Mesa.....nothing comes close to this beast!. The clean is awesome and the 2nd and third channels are the bomb. The design of the front panel is user friendly as well as functional.

    To bad this model was discontinued. If you get a chance to play with this amp, do it.

    Congrats on the cool amp.
    Why don't they start making them again?

    100 watts, 4 EL34 power tubes, and 8 preamp tubes. Much heavier sound wise than the M60 or 90.

    Angus,

    You liked the M60 didnt you? I actually prefered the M60 over the 90. I like this better than both.

    Yes this is a later version. I love the look. Looks just like the Modenas.

    Just put in a set of Siemens EL34s and a 5751 in that preamp tube that sits in the front near the power tubes....WOW.

    Just a crazy nice amp.

    Yeah, I like my M60 a lot.

    I think the M90 is similar but more low end, tighter and more aggressive.

    Can you elaborate on the differences between the Modena and the 3100? It's a very intriguing amp:cool:
