Has anyone heard about the new Komet? It's supposedly very close to the Express and will be 50W. I believe it's called the KF-50 and will be offered in a hardwood cab....
Hogy would they be a Komet amp or Trainwreck amp?Originally posted by hogy
The KF-50 is Ken Fischer's latest amp (and, next to the Rocket, my favorite Trainwreck design to date). It's a Lead amp designed specifically around EL34 output tubes.
There are plenty of Express traits in its tone, but it's much bigger sounding with a huge bottom end, and more clean headroom.
It ate my favorite '68 Plexi for lunch, almost hurt my feelings .
They will be available in solid hardwood cabinets because Ken likes the resonance that adds to the amp's tone.
I will spill more details as soon as the project is nailed down, but prototypes are up and running.
