    Well I got my Thunderfunk, Kicks Ass!!
    My other rig is an Aguilar DB359, but this is the amp goin on the gig. This thing is absolutely all it's cracked up to be. Warm, loud and clean with lots of attack but no brittleness to the mid or highs. The simplest amp to get good tone with that I've owned. Soon I'll be getting my Accugroove Tri210, Ill send an update then.

    I bet the TF and Tri 210 will really sound nice together; looking forward to a report.

    Hey ekohen,
    I just sold my DB359 a couple months ago and been kicking myself ever since. I've been looking very hard at the Thunderfunk as a possible replacement. How would you compare the 2? Similarities, differences, etc. Basically, is it a difficult transition going from an all tube head to a solid state? Thanks for any input you can give me.

    Dying to hear the update with the Tri210.

    My first impression of my Thunderfunk? "Wow, maybe I don't have to haul tubes to have a warm, agressive, punchy sound!"

    Thunderfunks are really nice. I really like mine. I plan to get Accugroove (Whappo Jr) in the future to match with it, though currently my Aggie GS112s do pretty well.

    Haven't done any recording with the TFB420 yet but judging by live usage I think it will work out fine. As a matter of a fact I would consider selling the DB359 if I needed the cash, but it is a nice luxury. The TF to me sounds as warm and I easily get the sound I'm looking for, I don't think you'll be sorry if you go with the TF. Also this thing weighs 15lbs!!!

    You tempt me sir! Thanks for the posts. I am considering a Thunderfunk paired with a BergieHT112/Ex112 combo.

    That's my setup.

    Sounds great.

    El Dudearino, how well does the thunderfunk power them? I would love to downsize to a thunderfunk with my Ht/Ex combo. My Ca-6/ Demeter setup is just too heavy!

    My "big rig" is a similar setup (CA9/Kern or SVPCL with 2 stacks.) It certainly isn't the same sound, but the TF certainly has enough to open up the Ht/Ex - I think it sounds great!

    Dude, Does the Thunderfunk have a clip light for the input or output? What I noticed when I did demoed an HT/EX stack this weekend was that the Behringer head I was using (BX3000T - it is anAshdown MAG 300 clone) was clipping a little at what I considered band volume to be. The Behringer is 300W@4 ohms. While a Korean made knock off, it is a reasonable facsimile for the Ashdown which is 200@ @4 ohms. So you've never had any power related concerns with the HT/EX stack and the Thunderfunk? The TF amp sure is looking appealing. The more I play, the more I realize I am a plug and play kind of musician. I love keeping it simple. - Gary

    edit ..er, the Behringer is a "chinese' made knock off.

    I have a DB359, and just ordered the Whappo Jr. from a new dealer here in NC, and I like the Aguilar sound, so I'm gonna grab me an Aggie AG500SC when they come out. Do you think the TF would be better? I probably won't be swayed to the TF but I'm curious to hear everyone's opinions on which would be better.

    now now the behringer is a Chinese made knock off, not a Korean one, just to be a technicality-nazi

    Another Thunderfunk question. I plan to use it with Bergantino cabinets. Does the Thunderfunk have Speakon outputs? What about input or output signal clip lights?

    I;m guessing it must have enough power if it is often used with Accugrooves. But they have an impedance switch as I recall which allows them to be set at 4 ohms. That would get the full 400W from the Thunderfunk. Are there any plans for a higher powered Thunderfunk Amp?

    Thanks! - Gary

    Is the Berg NV610 8 ohm or 4 ohm?

    I used my Thunderfunk with either two Bergie HT112's or one of Jorg's 1210's.............sounds great either way :cool:
