I've owned every amp from the MTS line, and currently have 2 RM50's. Their weight and size are what's most appealing about them, but I do miss the 3rd channel.
I've owned 4 RM100's, but now my studio (and nearly every venue in town) is in a basement, I'd rather not have to lug around a 77lbs amp head.
What makes this amp so damn heavy?
I've played a range of other 100w amps that are 45-50lbs, which is much better.
Is there anyway to make the RM100 lighter? _________________ Fender HRD III / Synergy SYN-1

In short, no. The iron alone is about 25-30 pounds. They are bigger than most 100W transformers as well to accommodate all the secondary windings on the PT and all the various output tubes you can use. _________________ www.jadedfaithmods.com https://www.facebook.com/JadedFaithMods

Then you do the only logical thing, and upgrade to Jaded Faith Mercury Magnetics iron... And buy yourself a dolly. _________________ www.facebook.com/paracosmband
