    I am just wondering if anyone has had a chance to try the Magnatone Lyric? I played a Varsity reverb a few weeks ago and was blown away by the tone. However, it was just far too loud for my needs. There's not much out there on the Lyric and I will admit that the 10" speaker made me think of it as more of a home amp. However, Magnatone has just released a 12" version, which seems like it could be a great gigging amp. I just have not heard a demo or seen much discussion on either version.

    Duuno about the Lyric, but the Twilighter is awesome!

    I tried one of these this past weekend when I was visiting Vancouver. It actually sounded incredible! I didn't realize it was single ended, but had the charm of one, with the body and shoulder of a bigger amp because of the cab and speaker.

    I can't find a ton of video demos though, unfortunately. Anyone rocking one these days?

    I have a 2013 Varsity. I have played the 10" Lyric. Not quite the 'bigness' of my Varsity but it will hold its own at a smaller gig. While Magnatone rates an amp's wattage at lower levels it seems a lot more in person and playing through one of their models.
