    Yes, I know there's a topic about it, but check out the new line of DAR amps, Fredrik Thordendale signature:

    I was pretty well impressed with them from Ola's demo. And I must add that I think they looking pretty damn sick as far as amps go.

    It sounds like that amp has no balls. It's as if they took every thing I wouldn't like about a tone put it into one amp. The screechyness makes it seem like they are using a tin can and a tiny speaker for a cab.

    Edit: ahjteam's vid makes it a bit more appealing, but it's still not the kinda of tone I would go for. Guess it's just personal preference.

    I'm sure it has everything to do with the settings fred's using. Even so, the thing has loads of tone and screams

    Oh yeah. Me too. but they're two completely different amps.


    I love both of them equally, but when it comes down to it.. The Forza is pretty much perfect.

    :OMG:

    $3700 for just a head. i feel like you can just buy a human head for less; turn the gain up to skull shattering and youve got a bad ass head \m/

    That's actually one reason I want one.. Oddly enough. I like the tone it pushes, and I like that it does't get oversaturated.. But I'm sure they can. Going to NAMM this year to find out though! :)

    I dig Fredrik's clip. I think it quacks better than the axe-fx. Here's to hoping we get real amps on the next Meshuggah record...

    I never understood how people get such smooth tones from T75s, the Fredrik clip sounds awesome.

    Maybe on its own, but in comparison to other T75 clips I've heard, it doesn't have that extreme boost in the 3-6khz region.

    It's *extremely* smooth for a raw G12T-75 clip. It has some abrasive stuff going on in the high mids... but I mean, c'mon, that's the Chaosphere factor :D

    That's not his signature amp, tho, is it? Isn't it just a Forza or whatever those are called?
