    I’m all about big iron, so if it was me I’d get the Archon, but if you like the tone, couldn’t you mic it up at the gig?

    That way you’d have a low power amp for not waking babies up. ;)

    Be nice if it isn't a weird proprietary switch so you can connect it to standard switchers and looper.

    Okay, the MT 15 for me takes this meme to a new level.

    This is exactly the sort of format release I've been hoping for, and fills a precise tonal and functional niche at an amazing price point. With 6L6s.

    Done and done, I just have to finish two existing projects first.

    Yeah... but, Archon and Torpedo. I really should get the Torpedo, because the insulation in our inner walls is basically nonexistent, even 15 watts will be too much.

    The Torpedo’s a great idea, because you can use it with all of your amps.

    However, you have my permission to get one of these MT15s. It’s small enough to hide inconspicuously out of sight. Your wife will never notice it.

    Hook it up to a Torpedo instead of using a cab, and it just looks like a piece of weird studio gear.

    She’d notice the Archon.

    I’m so helpful at being sneaky, right?

    And people wonder why I got two Black Gold 594s... :cool:

    A pair of 6L6's delivering 15 watts made me very curious about how that amp sounds

    I’ll probably get one. Something unassuming sitting next to the couch appeals to me right now. Plus it’ll provide ambient lighting.

    I’m interested to see how “big” it sounds.

    There are ways obviously to get "only" 15 watts from 2 6L6s, but this is most interesting to me to see how it "sounds." Because, for years people have claimed certain tonal qualities for bigger vs. smaller tubes and in the grand scheme of things, it's not quite that simple. Bigger iron and higher voltage is a big part of it too. So I'm very anxious to hear this. I could speculate they went smaller iron and maybe also lower voltage. If so, we'll get to hear this vs. other EL84 based amps of similar wattage and see just how much of the bigger amp tone this amp can retain. I'm sure they went this route for a reason (vs. EL84) so I'm actually very curious to hear it. And I don't just mean recordings, I mean play one. Also noting the cab which seems BIG for a 1x. Again, they are going for a bigger sound. Dont' want to go to all that trouble then have it choked off by a smaller sounding cab. Well thought out so far... now let's hear it.

    I thought this was fascinating re. recording of The Last Hero with a prototype version of this new amp. Very interesting!

    You could probably mod to green.

    That’d work for me. It’d also be a nice reminder: Green means go, play clean guitar. Red would be please stop with the distortion... maybe it should be yellow instead. You know, hurry up with that guitar solo, be cautious of the shredding.

    Sounds like a perfect excuse for not ever playing clean.

    Love the color lights switching. Oh, yea, and the tone.

    It needs chicken head knobs! :)

    Purple = clean

    Strobing clear = overdrive

    Flames/smoke machine = Boost

    (Ok I know it’s not 3 channels, but the aftermarket MTB-1 pedal could be a switching option?!)

    :D:D

    Good call on the purple channel... but don't forget the disco ball.

    Last time I played with blue lights was 32 years ago. I was working at K-Mart and going to school. :confused:

    I’m not into colored lights. I’d probably take the bulbs out.
