    Hello,
    Can anyone tell me what the difference is in the Walter Woods Electracoustic 1200 watt and a Ultra 1200 watt?? Thanks!
     
  2. Identical.... IMO, if you get a Walter, you need to get the highest wattage one he makes (the Ultra1200 mono Electracoustic). It's a great amp. His lower power models sound great but don't put out the serious wump needed for B string electric.

    The current WW amp models are all called Electracoustic. All are identical except for the output power and whether they are mono or stereo. Unlike almost every other amp out there you don't get any extra features buying the more powerful models. The wait can be extremely long for anything other than the Ultra so unless you REALLY can't afford it, that's the one to get...they're all the same size and weight anyway.

    Currently you can order:

    High Power (green light) 450w @ 4 ohms
    Super High Power (amber light) 650w @ 4 ohms
    Ultra High Power (blue light) 1200w @ 4 ohms
    High Power Stereo (green light) 1000w bridged or 2 x 350w

    Used you may find:

    Low Power (red light) 200w @ 4 ohms
    Low Power stereo (red light) 2 x 100w (no bridging)

    There are numerous models that predated the Electracoustic line and the features vary quite a bit.
