  • YT: DAR Forza Quattro - Metal

    Hey guys, back from the banning Stuff has happened since then. I just started my new blog http://www.olaenglund.com where I will gather all my **************** and rants.

    Also I've been fortunate enough to try out the DAR Forza Quattro amp. Both live and at home(for recording).

    It has been an awesome time.



    Also here is a small cam sound video:

    Sounds awesome and good riffs too. Alas, yet another amp I will probably never have the good fortune of playing.:cry:

        Sounds great but not like something that would make me want that amp. Basically, very generic metal tones. What's in it that's better than other metal amps and justifies the about 3.7K price tag?

          Edited. Also put up the cam recorded test. It was 9 am in the morning so I couldn't crank the amp to loud.

            Nice tone but then again, most metal players here could probably get a similar tone using a much cheaper 6505+ :idk:

                  If there's one thing Ola has proven by now it's that nearly any higher gain amp with any kind of positive reputation can work for metal, with a bit of tweaking, good mic positioning and some production skills.

                  Ola - how different would you rate the *feels* of the amps you've tried?

                    Thanks, all amps feel different and that's what I totally love with all the amp testing. I can totally understand what people are praising "their" brand for. All the amps I have tried have had their own character and qualities to them. All of them kinda fitted my music. And if they werent I tweaked the hell out of them to make them fit.

                      Can't check this out right now, but will later.

                      Do you get these amps by the manufacturer to test? Or are you just the ultimate gear whore who buys to test and then sell them? :lol:

                      I have no doubt this clip sounds as good as the rest of yours.

                          Not my favorite tone. It sounds a little to "busy" with the gain. Like too much upper mids/highs. :idk:

                          It still sounds good though, and might be a favorite for some people.

                              Awesome, Ola. The tone is cool but I think my favorite parts are the writing and production on this clip.
