    I'm possibly going to be trading one of my amps for a Celtic Diedre. It seems to be based on the C-30 series amps. Has anyone owned or played a Diedre or any other Celtic amp? I'm trying to get some info on them.

    It's a copy of the C-30 and it's doubtful anyone's played one, AFAIK, there is only one of them

    I spoke with Scott F (builder of Celtic Amps) and he said their are several of them out there.

    I stand corrected, I thought he'd only done one...

    sixstring531 snatched the one I was going to trade for. I'm still curious if anyone has any information on the amp.

    call Scott at Celtic -- easy to talk to and full of info.
    He said its all top notch components
    handwired
    same trannies as BadCat/Matchless (from same distributor)
    based off Ceriatone DC30 Clone which he (Scott) helped design
    has half power switch
    hi/lo on each channel
    is extremely heavy
    gets very loud
    he didn't build many because they took so much time to build

    this is all I really know :)

    Scott didn't design anything, it's a clone of an HC-30...it's more or less a Ceriatone kit with some upgraded parts.

    Why would you trade for any gear if you haven't used one?

    Thanks for the info. I've managed to figure out pretty much what it is. I guess since it is based off the Ceriatone it layed out on boards rather than ptp.

    I'm curious to hear of anybody's experience with one. The only thing I found in a search of the board was that someone listed it as an amp that exceeded expectations in the amps that exceeded expectations or were disappointments thread.

    I'd trade for it because it seems like a quality amp and I'd be trading something that doesn't really get much use. I also have liked most 4x EL84 amps I've tried.
