Holy Crap amp are expensive as hell these days

Post by withmittens » Fri Apr 13, 2018 10:42 am

I understand that you get what you pay for. I also understand that quality design and craftsmanship comes at a premium price because it costs more to do it.

But, Holy Jesus, looking around at amps kills any desire to branch out from MTS.

Sound City 30 watt combo for 2400. Damn, that's so crazy

Looking at chinese made mainstream amps from the big players is much more tolerable but no way they're better than what I have.

I guess I have that and more in my system but it does so much more.

That's it, carry on

PS, a 2 x 12 cab from Sound City is a grand. What the what? When did a cabinet become a G?

Likely those amps are "boutique made (assembled)" in the USA...like Synergy.

Good guitars are expensive as hell today too....

yes, assembled in USA. like Harley.

I think good guitars can be had for under $500 with a little upgrading

I understand what you are, because Sound City 30 watts I use it as well.

Ok don't laugh to much but the NADY 100 is a beast and for 150 bucks you will be amazed! Hit the front with a TS 808 and watch the neighbors run!
