    Rhodes sent me this amp to mess around with. I gotta say... I'm in love with how it sounds. What do you guys think?

    Bad ass riffs!!! and the amp sound's pretty ok. Little dry sounding for me. but the low end on the amp is pretty nice. very clean sounding

    Thanks man. It is a bit on the dry side here (probably my poor mix more than anything). The amp is super tight though. Feels great!

    great technical riffs!
    Well the amp seems like a cleaner and tighter 5150

    That's exactly what I thought! The amp below it in the video (original sig 5150) has a similar tone and feel. The Rhodes is A LOT more focused, though.

    It sounds pretty good to me, along with the awesome riffness. Hey Keith did you profile it yet with your kemper?

    Kyle Rhodes dabbled as a soundman in his hometown, and my band played a show there last year. Kyle was nice enough to bring the amp out and let me play it for the show and it was awesome. I'd love to own one someday.

    We have a Colossus at our studio and it's seriously the heaviest amp we've ever used! Great natural, full sound but tight as hell. We brought ours down to NAMM and people loved it (actually being used in Ola's Rhodes Demo video). Plus Kyle Rhodes is one hell of a dude too! I believe the Rhodes demo amp is being used by Zack Ohren right now, so expect it on some of his mixes.
