I am just about to pick up a Mesa Lonestar Special but just wanted to know if there are any Studiotone users here.

Please give me your thoughts on this little amp. The dealer I'm getting the Mesa at, is a Koch dealer but does not have the Studiotone in stock to compare with.

Thanks

it's a great amp, but it won't keep up with a (loud) drummer. Too little headroom for that - it's more vox than hiwatt. It has a really nice upper mid jangle - better than the other koch amps. it's Not so clean and sterile.

Hi

The 1st 50 Watt Multitones did have Celestion Vintage 30 speaker(s), after that they did start using Jensens.

Hi Brian,

Did you get the new TwinTone II.
Please tell us what you think. I'm considering a TwinTone II myself as the Lone Star is almost twice as expensive as the TwinTone II.

Cheers,

They are almost the same price in Canada. Twintone about 1,700.00 and Lone Star Special 1 x 12 about 1,800.00.

I guess it's the new Twin Tone. (3 channel).

Main difference is the 3 channels and way more headroom on the TwinTone.

You can nail Joe Satrianni tones on the OD 1 and OD+ channels.
Think G3 Live in Denver DVD.

On the clean channel the Koch is so articulate. Just play it at very low volume and it is just so full!!!!

I bought it the same day I picked up the Lonestar and have been playing the Lonestar more at the moment. I just have not had a chance to really work out the Koch yet.

You can drop the wattage on it by putting the internal speaker plug in a different jack as well. I have yet to try this.

This is such a minor thing but I think the Koch line up might just be the nicest looking amps on the market. Coolest damn grillcloth period!!!

Actually, the first multitones I saw in the 90s had reissue greenbacks (50w) or vintage 30s (100w)
