It is a Scmidtt trigger.................
Lots of jazz guitarists use them.
A ss amp will make a lot of sound. And will sound good .thar are things only tubes can do. The build quality of ss amps could be better
My Orange cr120c does just fine
Try telling that to guys like B.B. King, John Fogerty, Ronnie Montrose, etc. who all used SS amps - and sounded better than you ever will.
See my comment above.
Someone should have told those guys how shitty SS amps are. Maybe if they had been using tube amps they might have made a go of it in the music business. Oh. Wait a minute..................
I've never tried one because I am happy with my Orange AD30, but I have heard a lot of good things about the CR120.
I just got a Katana 100 Mark 2. Can't stop playing it. It's a loud 112 combo too and sounds good at that level where some SS fail.
I would gig it any time. Guitar, foot controller, amp. Onboard effects are plenty fine. Very playable/useable amp.
Little shit in your cornflakes today? I don't care what these other guys may have played or liked. I can most certainly assure you that i have used SS amps and they really are not that great. If you had a clue you would get what i mean, it has to do with the circuitry.
Here's some solid state for ya-
Nope, just a low tolerance for idiocy.
And yet plenty of players far more talented and successful than you will ever be are perfectly fine using them.
You need to learn that your opinions are not facts.
If Dime and Chuck Schuldiner were still alive, they'd still be rocking SS amps....
Same to you. You are passing judgement on my supposed lack of ability to play a guitar as good as the other more famous players and yet have you ever really heard how i play? No you have not, again no clue.
Secondly i have been repairing amps for more than 20 years and if you really think SS is the cats ass then have it my man there are plenty of these unwanted POS's out there to be had for cheap.
Third using "success" to back up your argument is a moot point. We all know in the music world some very lousy people become very rich and famous and some very good ones as well. There is nothing quantifying about success in music, some have it some don't but in the end it means nothing!
Roland Jazz Chorus still the king of SS amp...
I had one of those for house backline at a club in Edinburgh a couple years ago. It was fun , sounded great ,and I was able to find "the tone" on it faster than I was able to find it with a Marshall 6100
Im keeping my eyes peeled for the 60w 2x12 combo version to pop up
Yamaha G100 1x12 works awesome
its just an opinion. no real biggie. i have them you have them he has them.
you are right that several have made good music using SS amps. i do however like my SS amps
to be older models.
i am a tube fan though and thats my go to. if i had to pick out of what i personally own, it will have tubes.
It’s all about what you want to use. Tubes and solid state is on thar way out . Computer modeling is going to take over for amps.as soon as the price comes down
I think that there will always be a market for tube amps. It may shrink, and probably will, but just as there is continuing interest in vintage cars, I think that there will be continuing interest in real tube amps as well.
However, the market decides how long tube production will last. As digital amps start digging into tube amp sales, it's going to reduce long-term demand for tubes. The day may come when no tube factory remains in operation.
So I suggest you buy 'em cheap and stack 'em deep. (Tubes, that is.) You know, like you WOULD have done if you'd been around, playing guitar, had a little money, and could see into the future a few years before the great tube companies stopped production on the best tubes ever made.
If I had a time machine and a good stash of period correct currency, I'd rent an apartment near the Mullard Blackburn factory and buy huge stocks of ECC-83s, EL-34s, and KT-66's with every pound I could scrape up.
Think ahead. Stock up on the available tubes NOW. Today we have three factories left that make tubes. In 20 years I'll be surprised if there's ONE. Existing stocks will be all there will be to draw upon. So get that stock while you can.
class d with amp sim works GREAT.
i've been rehearsing with a DIY Class D amp I've put together, Mooer 005 and a 112 V30 Cab.
And I've owned some old randalls, I love that stuff. Now I have some RG120 or 130... don't remember, it's in my storage in brazil. it's a GREAT amp for almost nothing, really cheap.
