Here’s a thread that probably won’t make any difference to any sentient being other than yours truly: Do you care whether or not an amplifier looks cute, pretty, nice, handsome, or otherwise cool sitting in your music room? I was thinking this morning as I started to pack up my gear from a session at my place, “Dayum, I have some nice looking amplifiers. I wonder if that was part of my buying process?” Shallowness Admission #1: Probably, since on two of them I went for customized leather coverings and special grille material! And my PRS amps are lovely beings in and of themselves! So I guess looks matter to some degree at Studio Craptastic. I wouldn’t buy an amp that didn’t sound beautiful. But I also would have issues with amps that look cheesy, For example, would I spend real USA greenbacks on an amplifier covered in, say, orange tolex? Maybe not. And should I spend $3100 on a speaker cabinet that I can buy for $650 just because it’s made from nice hardwood? Discuss.
