    Well... I've found very few informations on it, here and in others forums.

    Does somebody own or try one of this new Roccaforte model? Do you have some informations about its price or whatever...?

    I'm just curious and interested about it. :cool:

    I sent you a PM, Doug, but here is again the questions:

    1/ Does it have an effect loop?
    2/ Do you use a rectifier tube as on HG-30?
    3/ Is it possible to use others tubes than 6V6?
    4/ Is it possible to have a clean tone (like the HG-100 soundclip of Riviera Paradise)
    5/ Do you have soundclip of this head?

    Well it's the first questions that come to my mind.

    Regards,

    Concerning the 1/ (effect loop) , I think there is no effect loop. But I asked to be sure.

    Doug -

    Would you take another couple of HG18 questions?
    > Is the HG18 another MV amp?
    > Ced777 asked about other tubes - are EL84's in the allowed swaps?

    I (happily) own an HG30 (fantastic amp), but the 18W might fit better in my playpen. Tonewise, is the design sweet spot for the HG18 similar to that of the HG30 at lower power level, or different beast altogether?

    Thanks - Mark

    The HG18 is octal tube based, no EL84's.
    It is a full sized head, and I'm also offering
    Class A Class AB switching (upcharge).
    In its stock AB mode, it can run all
    of the larger octal based tubes with a re-bias.
    It covers the same tones as the other HG's,
    but the output stage will run out much earlier.

    I've never tried them, so no until I do.
