  • I am very suprised !!!



    I stopped at GC today to fool around with some amps. I plugged into an Egnater Rebel and it sounded pretty decent (through the Egnater 112). I walked away from it a few times and kept going back to it. In the end, I said what the hell and bought a new one in the box. I'm headed down to Austin next weekend to play a party gig with some of my old band mates from college and I thought it would be a nice compact setup.

    When I got it home and plugged it into my Mojo 2x12 with Webers, I was simply blown away. Sounds so much better than the little Eganter cab.

    It is a very thick and greasy sounding little amp. Perfect for just about any vintage Marshall sound at low volumes. I was suprised at how much gain it had........albeit loose sounding. I spent about an hour playing old ZZ Top licks. Then I put a Boss OD-3 in front and it pushed it right up to old school metal stuff. However, it isn't going to bring the modern brootz because the gain is just too squishy. And the 6V6 side sounds pretty bad to me. Really flat and woofy under gain. Might be better with my strat but I haven't tried that yet. But it sounds WAAAY better with my humbuckers on full EL84.

    I honestly thought I would be disappointed when I brought it home.........but its definately a keeper I'll try to get some clips up this weekend, I think many of you will be suprised.

        Personally, I really didn't like it at all. I thought the TT stomped all over it.

        But glad you like it!

                I think we all have a problem. I have bought gear that I knew I would be disappointed with and I still left the store with it. Talk about having a gear complex.

                  Different strokes for different folks ! I bought the Tiny Terror shortly after the initial hype and sent it back after 2 days. Then again, I hated the Rockerverb 50 as well.

                    Would the 5 watts be sufficient in a full band context though ?

                      Possibly

                      Possibly not

                      It's possible, that it may also not be possible

                      The TT can stand up to a drummer+bassist at 7 watts so I suppose so

                        I like how you make something possibly impossible seem possible at doing what it may possibly not be able to do
