I’m planning a trip to NYC in a few months, going to test drive some Komets at Ultrasound if they have any in stock. Really looking forward to it based on your clips and testimonials!
My favorite amp is my Wizard Hybrid. Great clean channel, great dirty channel. The feel of the amp is admittedly difficult to play, but it is so rewarding when you’re warmed up and playing well. No other high gain amp that I’ve played had the focus and clarity.
I have told this story but remember in the 90's before a show at the rehearsal place.
My favourite amp is one of my Hiwatts - and the least desirable one too, from a collector’s standpoint: My 1982 Custom 50.
For whatever reason it just destroys. Huge, fat sounding cleans, ripping leads, and the best pedal platform ever created. I just love it.
…Seen here on the right!
I believe it; these are a ‘75 and a ‘73. Similar to your story, I went to a show in the early 2000s and the guitar player was playing two champs, and it rocked. I was on a hunt for two of them after that until i found both of these from the same seller years later. I thought it was steep at the time for $1000 cdn for both, but prices seem to continually be going up on these.I have told this story but remember in the 90's before a show at the rehearsal place.
A friend comes with his band and his guitar player had 2 1960's and 70's.
I had my Tremoverb as we we doing back 2 back rehearsals.
After I heard that little beast skied I implored the guy to sell it to me and he never did.
We are still friends, but man, what a beautiful sounding amp!
Just one, really? Can't even give you top 3?
You run vintage Ram's Head Big Muffs on it? No issues with feedback/headroom?
I had the opposite experience. My Telos has a great master volume and can sound great at really low volumes.Carr Mercury V It does the Marshall thing but has nice cleans and can chime. Tone holds up loud to quiet playing volume. Compact package with medium weight.
Also like the Bogner Telos a lot but wouldn’t be able to use it in my current situation due to its volume.
