Hotone Ampero

Looks to me like you were simply not satisfied with the product, nothing more nothing less and you should have picked a retailer with a free of charge return policy.
I'm really at a loss to understand how you can say that. By every account, even by those who like the product, it is defective.
Here in Europe we got thomann.de and you can always return a product free of charge no matter what. If Thomann didn't have that policy i think i would not even order with them.
So lucky you. And easy for you to say. You live in the Netherlands and are covered by European consumer law which in the US might well be considered Socialism if not outright Communism :eek:

Did you even read the article you are referring to?
It says:
"As a whole, the law is designed to ensure that consumers in the EU are entitled to the same minimum rights wherever they shop, and largely follows inspiration from theories of consumer protection developed in California and the Consumer Bill of Rights proclaimed by John F. Kennedy in 1962."

And that is considered "Communism" nowadays in the US?
Oh man, you guys sure have come a long way...

California is like a whole separate country. For real.

Cherrypicking the article may serve your purpose.

In the EU the following is covered by law:
  1. The right to change your mind for 14 days - you can return your purchase without giving a reason.
  2. EU online sellers must provide you with detailed information, including their contact details, the main characteristics of the product or service and the total cost of the product, including all taxes and delivery charges.
  3. The express right to refund for delayed or non-delivery within 30 days. Right to redress in case of faulty goods.
  4. If an item you bought online turns out to be faulty or not as advertised, you have the same legal rights as if you had bought it in person in a store. Under EU rules, any faults that become apparent within six months of the goods being delivered are presumed to have existed at the time of delivery. The trader may first offer the consumer a repair or replacement, but if this is not possible or turns out to be unsatisfactory, the consumer may then seek to rescind the contract and ask for a full refund. Refunds must be processed within 30 days.

forty dollars :rolleyes:
In just dropped $52 buying Starbucks for my family. That’s not the point. Henky couldn’t understand why I had to spend $40 to return this pile of junk, so I spent more time explaining it to him than I should have.

Side note, I have a Zoom MG50 on my acoustic board that I use for compression and reverb. I just plugged it into my PA and the amp models and effects legitimately sound better to me than the Ampero. I paid $55 for the Zoom new.

To all the youtube reviewers it is HOTONE (HAH TONE) not Hot One or HOE Tone. Pathetic that these reviewers Love everything they test yet cannot even pronounce the brand name correctly. Oh and my HX Stomp will be here today :D

Let us know how the Stomp goes. My main concern is footswitch capabilities, but the sound is definitely there.

So to sum up after like 20 pages of how to void your warranty to fix the noise & other issues:

Harsh top end fizz
Stock cabs are garbage
Unusable low quality effects
Amp models sound more like pod HD series from 9 years ago

Or maybe they should have thought twice before naming a brand something that could be so obviously mispronounced. And as I’ve said before: If they reserve the right to spell their brand that way I’m going to reserve the right to call it ‘HO TONE’ as in the sound of prostitution.

I always imagine the creator coming home to his wife (‘cause I’m a chauvinist who naturally assumes it was a hetero sexual man who invented it) and saying:
“Look, Honey: I just found the perfect name for my new brand!”
“Let me see that. Ho tone? Really?”
“No no, it’s pronounced Hot Tone! Get it? See what I did there?”
“But that’s how it reads: Ho Tone”
“Never mind, Honey, you just don’t get it! But that doesn’t matter because all my customers will get it!”
“Good for you, dear”

BTW: Congrats on the HX Stomp, it’s a very cool little unit. I have one and love it. But dare I say that it’s amp modeling isn’t quite up to par with the Atomic Amplifire’s? :D:rolleyes: Just kidding! (Not really) You’ll love it (fingers crossed)
