I don't know why either. They are some of the best made and best sounding amps on the market IMO...They're well made amps and sound amazing! Like some one said, "it's A real PRO amp"
Was just curious as to why their resale value is not as good as other great amps.
actually Tophat has been in the amp business since at least 1996, that's the earliest one I've seen.They hit the market at a bad time, and just never got their dues. I think their Name and Logo is cool, but many don't ( I believe).
Tophat and Matchless are actually the only two boutique brands I'd ever heard of well before joining TGP. Tophat has been around for quite some time now.Probably because, except for like a couple hundred guys on TGP, no one's ever heard of 'em?
(...kinda like most of the gear that's talked about around here.)
