    I am loving everything about these amps except the high price. Anyone else get these tones for a bit less?

    Ouch....its hard to buy Savage quality and tone on the cheap. Search the used market. They turn up for under $1700. They show up on Minneapolis (home of Savage audio) Craigslist all the time.

    Savage makes great stuff.

    :agree

    I agree 150%. And, though they are not cheap, as willhutch pointed out, there is a quality level there that is really, really high, and it shows, in the tone(s) of Savage amps. Also, Jeff Krumm is incredibly great to work with, both in terms of finding or making the right amp for you, and after the purchase. In my experience, his level of customer service and fanatical drive to get things 100% just right are matched only by Henry Heistand from Redplate. They are both first-rate good guys of the highest order as well. Truly.

    Neither guy makes inexpensive amps, but, in my opinion, they both make amps well worth what they charge, if they are your thing.

    That said, there are lots of really good amps at many price points, so one size will never fit all. I don't believe that one has to spend a minimum of $XXX to get a great amp for them.

    Happy Hunting

    I so wish I had a good answer to this. I love the sound of all the savage amps I've heard and I seriously regret selling my Macht 6. The build quality is amazing. I do feel they are a bit overpriced new for what you get, IMHO..... But then again, I've never heard 6 watts sound so good :)

    You can certainly find more reasonable prices on the used market and flip it for virtually no loss if it turns out to not be your thing.

    Willies has a used Rohr. Their prices are in line with other big boutique guys (which can still be high) but I've found that if you by quality once you're good to go.

    There really is no other amp like the Rohr, because the Rohr really is like no other amp. Pretty great amp... I've seen them go used for pretty reasonable prices.

    I have owned a few Savage amps, including two Rohrs. KILLER amps and worth the investment!
