Shoulda taken it easy on the Codes!!
It’s ok Jethro, I have 4 40c’s.
Sorry if I missed it. Thanks.
Welcome to the forum new MF’r, time for clips, pics , and the big review! Cheers Mitch
Thanks for that!!! Big help you are!!! LOL!!!
Yeh listen. I’ve calmed down just a tad after my initial salivating over these things. Given the time I've spent with my beloved CODE amps. and dialing them in to get my own ideal tone with my guitars and effects: I'm gonna have to do some REAL soul searching, and will have to at least try and be REAL honest with myself, before jumping in here. Do I just want them for bragging rights or are they gonna sound that much better than what I have given my setup??? Put another way: are they gonna sound nearly $1.6K per amp. better than what I have (that figure based on around $2K for a head and cab. less the average cost of my CODE amps.)!!!
And not to rain on the parade here BUT when I start seeing these little issues mentioned on the other threads creeping in I'm reminded of the DSL threads (first there was one... i.e. this is how it starts). So the above aside: maybe prudent to wait and see (not that I have a choice i.e. I reckon they'll take a while to get here anyway and for once I'm alright with that).
Still want two of 'em though!!! LOL!!! Cannot help myself now can I!!! LOL!!!
Yes...although I'm not sure it's rubber exactly, the Satriani JVM has them. They're not completely covered in rubber of course, only the black part of the knob. It's just a better feel, not as slick as the hard plastic ones. It's a small detail but a nice touch.
My Class 5 head has rubber on the knobs. Gives just a touch of heft to them, a really nice touch.
So they've already hit the used market? Or you mean new?
I could see the origin going away, although not yet...at least not until they give it a chance for a few years to see if it's going to be profitable. I don't see the DSL going away. As far as I can tell, at this point, this is their bread & butter.
There are many folks who can’t afford the Studio series, so the Origin series is the next best thing. I think each fills a different niche.
Having played an origin at a gig recently, I have to say, the origin it's a great amp at its price point. Good vintage style tone with the convenience added with a master volume.
It's not quite a plexi, but for anyone on a budget, it's a good alternative.. I'm not selling my sv20h or my old plexi clone to get one, but if I had to start over, it would be high on the list
If they were planning on getting rid of it then they wouldn't have introduced new cabs for them. That and the DSL will be around for a long time.
The DSL peacefully coexists with the Studio Classic and Jubilee, because it has more gain on tap on top of being cheaper.
The Origin needs something to set it apart from the Studio Vintage besides just price. If they could get the master volume to be a PPIMV like the Vintage Modern, that would be the ticket. As it is, you still have to have the Origin's master volume cranked to get much distortion if you don't use pedals.
And of course the DSL and Origin are available at higher wattage than the Studios, if you need the clean headroom.
The DSL will certainly be around for a long time. The Origin COULD have a relatively short life span. The jury's still out on that one.
Good catch, editing the post now.
Well...my friend just bought a vertical input 800 2204 in pristine condition off Reverb for $999. It’s been a decade since I last saw those prices. If we see more of this happening then my pondering may have some merit.
I'd love that, ever seen 'em sold as aftermarket ?
Nope, but never looked for them, either.
The usual price "dip", when these low power amps are released, act fast, it won't last.
