What amp has the most knobs and switches?
I would guess some Mesa, but knobs aren't my thing...
Some Rivera's are up there on the knob count.
Bogner Ecstacy is pretty knobby
I think we have a winnar!
If you move to the back of the chassis the XTC has alot of things to play with
I like buttons, knobs, switches...anything!
I would have said the Mesa Road King - 26 knobs and 4 switches on the front, 11 knobs and 18 switches on the back (not counting power and standby, and some of those knobs are rotary switches)...
... but the Rodenberg looks like a contender too, if it has as much on the back as the front.
I was going to say the infamous Cruise MQ4 (4 channels times 6 knobs and two switches plus all the power amp/global stuff), but I'm pretty sure the Rodenberg beats that...
Doesn't the new EVH have quite a bank of knobs?
Rivera has a lot of knobs and several push-pull switches. When I played Rivera's, the possibilities drove me nutz!
MAK4 by Mako ? Never heard anything about it other than that it was in prototype stadium...
Wow . 18 pre-amp tubes. This would be Leo Fenders' nightmare amp! He used a ss pre-amp in the Music man pre amps because in his opinion the quality of 12AX7's had become so dodgy.
Dunno, but i think Phil Lesh's Guild Starfire/Alembic bass wins for most knobs on a bass!
That is absolutely f***ing crazy!!
The funny thing is that I actually think it's a very simple amp.
Each channel has the same knobs and switches, all of which (apart from the four mode switches on the front) do the same things identically and independently of the other channels. No interactive stuff you need to balance between channels, just approach each as a completely separate amp and dial in what you want. Pure simplicity four times over, just as a big mixing desk is no more complicated than any one channel despite having hundreds of knobs.
Doesn't Marshall have one out recently that has a bazillion knobs?
