Mr. Figg, can the RM100 be halved in power?, using only two of the output tubes? They are a fine amp but for playing small gigs......i would love one though

They've got a great master volume, so playing smaller gigs isn't a problem. I use mine for any size gig we play & am always happy to have 3 modules to choose from

The above is true. I usually run my master at about 8 oclock, and while it is loud, it ain't that bad, and I get pretty good power tube breakup at that volume too - that'll largely depend on what tubes you run tho.

And, yes, you can run the RM100 @ 50W, with either the inside or outside two tubes removed. This does not make any appreciable difference in volume tho. Does make a difference in tone though.

WOW! You all have given me lots to think about.

Was wanting to keep this strictly rack though. So, what is it about the Fryette that makes it so popular? I know they make great stuff.
