    hi, i have a 500w watt head (to run a tc rs210 cab) that has given up .. no service for it in india. one of my friends visits italy very often and gets a discount at this store (mercatino musicale), and says he can get an amp for me. has anyone tried this?..

    i want a light-weight amp head that has a tube pre section.. any suggestions? thanks
     
  2. Not many Italians here. My Italian is zip but it looks like a pretty racy amp. Valve preamp, flexible EQ, 400w, pre and post EQ DI. Mucho dinero. (not cheap)

    hi, i also play in india(goa) during the season and this year wil be taking either my GK MBF 500 or my GK MB 200 out. i was using a GK backline 110 but the jams seem to be getting bigger and louder so i understand your need for a bit of power. my GK MBs sound real good through my RS210 but i aint gonna bring my cab to goa. ask your mate to check the GK MBs out when he is in italy, they are a good price and realy small and if its anything like the backline it will laugh at the monsoon humidity.
    shanti.

    just a footnote. yuor current amp can almost certainly be fixed. i've not found a peice of electronic gear yet that cant be fixed by an indian tech. just walk away when you see a hammer in the toolkit, you dont need to know how, but they will fix it for sure. these guys could fix a space shuttle with two bits of string and a few nails. realy.
    shanti.

    good luck. the MBF(fusion) has a three tube preamp 12ax7s and is not the most tube sounding amp but i found the tubes make it realy organic, IMHO it has a lovely tone and is louder than an indian wedding party band, its also about the size and weight of a car radio. i wish you luck my friend. i will be in india very soon, cant wait. i miss it so much.
    shanti.
