Anyone played a RedSub amp?

    I'm thinking of getting a RedSub BP150 150W. To be honest the price and the specs look too good to be true.

    Anyone had any experience with a RedSub amp?

    Never even heard of RedSub and that is saying something as I am on this bloody site all the time.

    Lots of good reviews online and they look like cool amps!

    The info I found on these amps is sketchy at best. A lot of the same stuff repeated on different sites in various languages. No site for the company itself. Too many red flags for me, I'd pass on this amp.

    These have come up before, best I can figure out they are a "house brand". House brand means someone builds then under contract for a specific owner (Like Bain Capital partner's Guitar Center/ Musician's Friend etals "Acoustic" house brand).

    Yes, they are a house brand for the company www.gear4music.com

    These amps are, IMO, very good for their price. Build quality is excellent, and the sound they can produce for the price is phenomenal. I tried one at a friends house a year ago, and when compared to my Laney amp at home, it made me want to buy one. As weird as it could be, I'm GASing for a house-brand combo from a website based company......weird huh?

    I don't think it is weird at all. I like hearing about a "sleeper" brand. If they play and are as well built as you say it's something I can point people to on the east side of the pond :)

    I know, I just meant most people are looking for £2000 amps and everything, and I can't wait to get a £200 amp haha. I might try 2 BP150's and a Lehle P-Split Splitter to run both combos at once. This will mean 300w coming from 2x15 (essentially), with a safe high impedance split for £500 ($825). Not bad I think...

    I think they're made by Beta Aivin (who also did the Ibanez Prometheans) and badged with the distributors brand.
