    my experience w/ komet amps is that if U buy one, U will eventually want to buy another one. then another one after that. and so on and so forth.
    thankfully, hogy and michael have limited themselves to a handful of production models over their few years of being in business. then there are those odd, one off amps that i see popping up from time to time. i'm really tryna pretend these don't exist.

    The Concorde is simply the one amp I'll never sell-It's that good, IMO-

    i have limited time on a concorde but do have a k60. i think the k60 is probably more versatile with the tube swapping options and a little less gain. the concorde is more of an el34 rock/lead amp with higher gain. either way you cant go wrong.

    I have a Komet 60. I find it can cover a lot of ground. Check out some of the last 3 or 4 Mark Knopfler albums.
    Great amp!

    The Concord can't do other types of music?

    I think it would do other types pretty well, but excels at "Rock" or "Southern Rock" or "Alternative" etc. where you might use a Marshall or Vox

    Having owned more than one of each amp you are asking about I must admit the responses you have received describe both amps well.
    The one thing that was not mentioned is both of these amps are not meant to be played at bedroom levels.
    Both amps are amazing and sound tremendous but have the ability to demolish small buildings.. :D

    You shuld also checkout putting NOS tubes in them. You can bias each one to suit your taste.

    Knoffler's tone was done by Kenny setting up the amp.

    Both cover all ground you can think of.


    Have fun!!!:RoCkIn

    i highly recommend the komet attenuator.
    i've only had mine for a few weeks, but it seems even more transparent than either the Dr. Zed airbarake or the THD hotplate. there is no 'bedroom' on the komet attenuator, and the maximum amount of attenuation is about 9 dB which allows one to use the amp opened up as widely as one wants and match the dynamics of a softish (for rock, jazz, pop, roots type) drummer.
    for absolutely transparent use, use the komet attenuator as a load in one amp output and use the other output for the speaker and put the impedance selector to half of what one normally does.
