Could the Meteor II be topped?
Bump for the Memphis (no pun intended,hehe).Dying to hear more about it.
The carrot has been dangled! Report!
Went to Pechanga last night and met wstsidela (nice guy and great player)... His London combo sounded great up there and had a cool snake skin cover... Couldn't stay longer than 9:30p (had to get to work by 6AM)...
For the time that I was there, the Memphis was on the way but didn't arrive yet... Didn't get to hear it... But I did enjoy listening and people were dancing... BTW Victor, nice Trussart...
Mike called and couldn't make it at the last minute. His wife is having health problems.
I have another gig on the 17th. I'll drive into town and pick it up.
I owe you, Brother Dookie. It was nice meeting you too. I get my D'Pergo next week. Come on over and play it!
cool ... hopefully they might have a prototype at the Amp Show
Oh yeah. I'm 99.9% sure they'll have it there.
Ah Crap... Totally had plans to go to that this year but just found out this morning that work is sending me to Vegas for a week at last minute... At least I get to stay at THEhotel Mandalay Bay but there won't be a killer collection of amps in individual rooms over there...
Actually I found out yesterday that the Memphis is a 2 x 6V6, but you can also get a 4 x 6V6 hi powered version too. My 4 x 6V6 version will be loaded with a quad of Bendix 5992's!
I am glad to hear they are going to offer it in a 4 x 6v6 version. After living with the low powered London/SoHo vs. the higher powered Marquee/Royal Albert I will not be buying anymore low powered amps. There is just something about having the extra air moving.
Now, I wonder if they would build me a SoHo in a 4 x EL84 version...
Man you guys must play loud!
I've got a SoHo with a Celestion 1221 from a Marshal 1974X.
Not the most efficient speaker........but sho sounds great.
Anyway I run the SoHo flat out/master volume bypassed (I ain't a big fan of the SoHo Master volume).
And everywhere I play I need to use an airbrake or Hotplate to reel her in.
Hey, any Memphis owners yet?
Also I'm curious if anyone has tried the SoHo in the 4 x EL84 configuration that 65 amps will apparently build on request.
Hi Grant, kind of off topic, but how are you getting on with your London and Swart?
Yeah it's been interesting.
I've found the Swart has worked out really well either for the smaller gigs, for home and when I want a more reverby atmospheric tone.
The London has proved to be still a little loud for the smaller gigs whilst not having the bottom end and headroom of my AC30 for bigger stuff-it's kinda getting a bit caught in-between if that makes any sense?
It certainly does have it's tonal strengths though so I'll persist for now to see what I can get out of it.
They do offer a four EL84 Soho called the Soho HP it just hasnt made it to the site yet. I think its 35 watts I dont rember exactly.
Isn't the Memphis called the Monterrey now? Something about another amp out there called the Memphis...?
That is correct. Another amp manufacture has the "Memphis" name trademarked. I heard the amp at the NAMM show and it does sound pretty killer. I don't have one order yet... I think this time I am just going to wait for a TPGer to sell theirs in the emporium so I can save a few bucks.
Have you tried a 55hz Scumback SA series in lieu of the G12H30? I found that it gave me the bottom end I was looking for - and then some - it's very clear and percusive now.
I've had a good play with a Memphis High Power 2x12 combo (built before the name change).
It's a very cool amp. Very Soho-like in it's feature set, and a bit brighter and tighter sounding than my 4x JJ6V6 Victoria Double Deluxe. Hopefully at some point I'll put up some tele clips I did for my friend.
65 are pretty much incapable of making an average amp. those guys have great ears.
