Some of you where asking about a demonstration of these knobs well here you go:
This is probably my favourite feature. Seems like the perfect amp with these controls!
No need for Tube screamer!
Awesome as hell dude.
Man, this amp gives me a raging tone boner. I'm so getting one when they're out and available.
Pretty sure that loads of people are going to hate me now, but I have to tell this:
Ola-I like you, your videos are pretty awesome, I am actually a Randall fan, but is it just me or
does that amp lack distortion in that video? I like it with the 6irth way above the 6rind, but even
when you had to 6ain and 6rind poti almost all the way up in the kill setting it didn't sound really
distorted to me (and I didn't like the sound very much, too twangy for me).
At first I thought you were using the wrong channel, with 6irth around 7/10, 6rind on 1-2/10 and
6ain on 8/10 with a TS in front it might sound pretty cool, maybe it was due to the EQ settings
or whatever, I have no clue, but after that video, this would be the least amp you reviewed I
would buy, sorry.
P.S.: there's a good chance that the sounds we both like are really, really different, but I loved
the sounds you were getting with your Engl Blackmore and the video with the Rhoads amp was
well I reamped the amp without a reamp box, so the signal might be weak, didn't think of that, but you don't have to worry this bastard has crazy amounts of distortion.
And of course different strokes for different folks. This is my stroke
No problem at all, it just seemed pretty strange to me, that it was so "less distorted"
even with all settings pretty high and on the kill mode, but reamping WITH a reamp
box might change that
I have to agree, it was sounding fucking AWESOME with the girth higher than the grind. Love the low end on that thing.
That just has to be the best feature I've ever seen on any amp. No matter how you EQ an amp, the character of the distortion always seems to remain the same. You only get the option to have more or less of it.
These knobs pretty much allow you to design your amp to sound the way you want it to. I really hope to see this concept a lot more in the future!
Saw this earlier and didn't get a chance to comment. That seems like something someone should have thought of a long time ago but didn't. I'm not a huge fan of the overall sound of the amp but I'm sure if I had a chance to rock out on one I'd probably change my mind.
didn't hiwatt's have that?
but it's a pretty useful feature I think. good to see this implemented with a new amp.
Seriously. If you can't make a good tight metal rhythm sound on that amp, you shouldn't even play guitar. That's it.
Idk I am still not a fan of that Fortin sound...... I would really need one of these in person to be able to pass my 100% final judgment on this amp.
but then again you didn't show up to the SFU show in Tampa so your opinion is not valid MUAHAHAHAHA!!!
I still love you!
