Y'all could organize a little Komet orchestra, together.
That amp makes me think Bentley or Rolls Royce...
It's definitely an amp for fancy lads.
I think it's beautiful.....
Rolls Royce did have a Silver Cloud model. Great amp. Sweetest I've ever used.
This may come across as Spam, but I'm so excited, I just want to share.
Just finished the prototype of what is without a doubt the ultimate Komet rig.
We now have the Komet AmbiKab Junior ready. It's a 2x10 powered stereo cab that holds the wet path of the AmbiKab only.
Basically, you hook the main cab (4x10 or 2x12, same size) up to one speaker out on the Silver Cloud. Then you hook the AmbiKab Jr. up to the second speaker out. Both cabs are now in parallel.
From the AmbiKab Jr.'s control panel on the back you send a line level, post Silver Cloud signal into your time based effects, then back into the stereo power amp of the AmbiKab Jr.
You now have a full-on stereo wet/dry/wet rig that sounds absolutely unreal. Effects are kept completely separate from the dry guitar tone, but blend in the air so they are perceived as coming from a single source.
I have never heard reverb or delay quite like this thing does it. Leslie simulation, too. It just envelops you.
And since the Ambikab Jr. is fed from the main amp's output, the effect always tracks the guitar signal proportionally. This means that whether you roll the guitar down for a cleaner tone, or crank it for your lead sounds, the ratio of dry signal to wet signal stays constant. I can't believe how well this works.
And did I mention the AmbiKab Junior weighs 26 lbs?
I'm pretty excited about this, in case you can't tell.

You're just totally killing me here.....bastardo!!!
No way Hogy, beautiful work as usual - always appreciate your posts.
That's really cool.
I love my Silver Cloud. I play it nearly everyday. I think I will soon go down the insane wet dry rig with a Komet 2x10 Ambikab and a GigRig G2 switcher to switch between my Songwriter Tremelo to the Silver Cloud to each of their matching 4x12 cabs with effects…
I'm still waiting on the matching Silver Tolex 4x12 for the Silver Cloud but here's a photo I posted elsewhere of my current Komet family (SC + Tremelo Songwriter in Plum Tolex). The 4x12 currently has Celstion Blues but I will replace them soon with Scumback S75-PVC Alnico in the 65 w version. The Silver Cloud will go through its own 4x12 with (4) Rawson Sparfield Starfinder Speakers which are 100 w Fane Crescendo clones.
Mike and Hogy do great work and are a pleasure to do business with. I've made my own tube amps for 20 years now and this is the only company I've bought new amps from. They are that good.
Very cool! Been waiting for this. I've been playing my Silver Cloud through a 2X10 Fane cab and a 1X12. Sounds great but want to try the AmbiKab Jr.
I need that cab!!!!
Take my money...
I've been waiting on this for a while. How long before actual production for purchase?
It's ready now.

Holy crap...a 6x10 Komet setup. I want that Ambikab Jr.
What are the dimensions, and will it be offered in multiple tolex colors?
Fingers crossed for a 1x10 Ambikab Mini for use with small combo amps
might be a stupid question I suppose, but does that mean there is a load in the ambikab jr? can you use it without another cab in parallel as you would a regular reamp setup?
The dimensions are 24"x12"x12". Weight is 26 lbs.
yes, different colors will be available.
There are no current plans for a 1x10" version. It isn't a bad idea, but this 2x10 is already light and small, and stereo is quite cool, especially for delay and chorus/Leslie.
The AmbiKab input is very high impedance compared to the dry speaker load and therefore has practically no effect on it.
I'm not understanding the "reamp" question, but you can hook up the AmbiKab in parallel to your speaker load, either via 2 outputs on the amp, or if there's only one, a Y-cable.

Killer looking rig @hogy!
I've been playing wet/dry/wet rigs for years, I concur nothing sounds quite like it when you want to add space / ambiance effects to a core amp tone, addictive.
That Jr 2x10 cab looks like a real nice well thought product, congrats; makes for a very compact & practical setup. I'm curuous, looks like a closed back cab and no internal mixer = "wet" effect return signal only? Do you already have some more tech specs & photos of the back panel available?
@wsaraceni, my understanding is that no it doesn't have an internal load = you shall still connect your amp to your main dry cab; it sounds to combine a line out box + stereo power amp + 2x10 speakers, with connections at the back for the post amp line signal out & stereo effect return / power amp ins.
