I’m GASing hard for one of these but I’m gonna hold out. I have a Dual Rectifier and TC50 at home (yes I’m a Mesa fanboy) that covers all the ground I need.
HOWEVER, if Tremonti makes a 100W version... I may trade both to get one.
My answer to the "you're playing too loud" issue? A Fryette Power Station (or other attenuator/reactive load box). Yes, some of them are expensive... but relative to what some pay for their guitars on here, they're pocket change lol.
I have my Dual Rectifier's master volume at around 10:00...
I've never played one a mini, but I've heard that a Mini Rec sounds weak compared to its older/bigger brothers. It's like the low end isn't there, and it just sounds brittle. Same for the 6505MH.
My OR15 sounded amazing before it died. So it's a good example that mid-high gain low wattage amps...
Welp, 3 months later and the OR15 I bought died :(
It does not pay to buy amps in this price range used, unless you get a steal on it. $150 off is not a steal. It's at a tech, hopefully not an output transformer. At this point, I'm fixing it to sell it, since it's already made me mad...
I just pulled the trigger on an Orange OR15. I feel very good about this decision since I don't have anything that accomplishes that classic rock sound. I already have a Mesa Dual Rectifier for the metal stuffs. Plus, I use an Orange 2x12 cab so I'm sure it'll pair really well :)
Not really. I feel the same way about it. And the more info that leaks, the less I'm interested.
Everyone was hyped for this amp, and nothing was mentioned at NAMM. Huge missed opportunity. I had the money to buy one, but it's going to be spent on something that's actually available.
I actually never owned a Bandit lol. I owned more classy brand name amps like Crate :p
On a serious note, I owned a Squier BP15 and a Crate XT120R for ages. Finally upgraded to a Mesa Dual Rectifier and Vox NT15C1 a few years back.
Agreed, we need info on the Tremarchon. Mark has said release in "March" (2017) many times. If that's true, WE HAVE to see it at NAMM. PRS is confirmed to be attending so surely they won't keep this monster under the sheet.
I have money set aside for it. All they have to do is take it!
