  • Overrated Amps

    Just curious as to what everyone views as over priced and overrated gear, specifically amps. I'll kick it off. In my opinion, Orange amps are way overpriced for what you get. Frankly you could buy any number of vintage amps for the price of an Orange Rockerverb or Thunderverb. Furthermore, there are several amps available with more features in the same price range.

    OK, my rant is over for now. Whaddaya got, HCAF?

          Diezel is an odd one. To me, there's no such thing as a $3000+amp. In fact, I will not pay much more than $2000 for an amp.

                Cameron, Dumble, among others. When it comes down to it, amps are worth what people are willing to pay for them and if they like the tone they're getting, good for them.

                  my thunderverb 50 is the ****************, youre thread sucks :lol:

                  on the serious note though, find me an amp that sounds like a TV50 and shares the features. and they have cheaper options which sound badass as well.

                      Orange are overrated
                      Blackstar are overpriced and overrated
                      Bogner Ecstasy is overrated and overpriced
                      Marshall JVM is overrated
                      Most amps are overpriced
                      5150 and it's variants are overrated.
                      These are the only things I can think of off the top of my head that seem blatantly one or the other or both.
                      There are many more amps I don't like, but I don't necessarily think they are overpriced or overrated........

                        I think someone is confusing "overrated" and "overpriced."

                          The closest thing I could suggest is like a Blackstar HT Club 50, then buy an attenuator.

                            WAT?!?! I like Blackstars a lot but they sound nothing like an Orange. Tone is completely different.

                              Pretty much every amp but Peaveys are overpriced.

                              JCM 800s are over priced because you can get Butcher that sounds just as good for a 1/3 the price.

                              Rectos and Mark IVs are over priced because you can get a xxx or ultra that sounds just as good for 1/4 the price.

                              And I love all the amps I just said are over priced, but reality is realty, The Mark IV is my favorite amp I've ever played, but really that thing wasn't worth $1200 when I can cop pretty much the same tones with a Peavey Ultra I paid $150 for just saying.

                              And I love Marshalls, always been a fan boi, but **************** come, Going price for used a used 2203 is around $1000, and the used price of a Butcher is about $300, and they sound almost ****************ing identical.
