Just literally bought this amp off a guy who bought a job lot cheap . It’s basically new but has been stored for 4 years . There’s a little bit of surface rest on the transformers but no big deal to me . Apparently it’s based on a 1975 2204 circuit so should sound great (not tried it yet ) . Not bad for £300 .
Good luck...just keep a fire extinguisher close by... just in case.
Well I’ve just finished playing with my Wang and WOW ! Hands down the best Marshall ( even though it’s not a Marshall) I’ve ever played and I’m going to leave it there . The guy I bought it from still has some for sale and I’m definitely going to get another one as backup , my tone chasing ends right here right now . Same guy also selling the 1987 version which going by the 2204 should also be killer , should have tried one maybe .
I’ve never heard of these going up in smoke , there’s even a Santiago modded version ( called the Kong from session music in Germany ) and I’m sure he’s checked tham over before he endorsed . Fantastic quality amp , super quiet and runs very cool compared to most Valve amps .
any chance of a clip mate?
I will definitely do something this weekend it definitely needs sharing .
Your Wangs been in storage four years???
Don't let your meat loaf.....
i always read that leaving transformers unused for long periods of time is bad, or was it the caps?
Congrats on the new amp. Darrel Braun did a review on these amps and had good things to say about. Sounds like you made a great purchase.
So according to the vid Krafty put up its pronounced “Wongs”, not “wangs” which means I can’t tease you about loving wangs...... damnit Krafty.
Sorry to spoil it for you.
It's nice out isn't it?
I think I'll leave it out.
After that long, the Wang should be re-formed to establish the oxide coating.
