    Heh.

    Who's gonna be the first to upgrade their rig to a 5Kwatt power amp?


    Mmmmmmmm. 550 watts of solid state electric guitar sound. I bet it's tonal bliss.


    :scowl:
     
  7. That is sick..and I don't mean sick in a good way.

    I pray to god our guitarist dont buy those haha

    wouldn't a guitar SS amp have the same issues with head room etc as a SS guitar amp, and sound like crap if turned up to high? Maybe its just me but im not really a fan of SS guitar amps at all, im more worried about my guitarist getting and extra 412 for his mesa...

    because people will buy anything.

    especially those that feel they need to compensate.

    I don't see the problem personally. If a guitarist is using a 550 watt SS head, I'd just take it as a signal to run the other direction. That head just gives me another flag to help ID guitarists I don't wanna work with. :bag:


    Of course one of these days I'm going to hear a phenomenal sounding SS guitar amp that is going to make me eat my words. ;)

    It probly has lame tone anyway. At least I hope! Seems like any guitar player with half a brain cell left would realize thats more than they will ever need.
