    Is the RH750 still the slickest micro that has hit the market thus far?
     
  2. I think the GK MB800 might fit the description.

    When was the RH750 the "slickest"?

    Well it's inovative and unique in its features and interface, not to mention its modern industrial design. Slick to my eyes.

    (not to minimize its controversial power ratings and non-defeatable limiting.)

    Yes. ;)

    I haven't seen anything close to challenge the TC's amazing feature set yet. I also dig the design, and more importantly tone, and as you know it is loud as well.

    The GK MB800 looks cool if you like that GK voicing. Personally, I think the new light weight head from Glockenklang looks really interesting as well, but I'm not sure about its size.

    Ya, aside from the whole power debacle thing, they do have a ton of built in features. Some folks seem to really like them, other wish all that baked in processing could be defeated, like you can't escape "that sound" or that the amp is being somehow choked back.

    Most of these mico heads all use the same ICE power modules so it really all comes down to preamp tone, features, filtering, limiting, etc.

    Around here, the Genz Shuttles seem to be the most popular by far, though mostly with older players, doing blues, country, older rock-n-roll. Likely due to size, weight, in combination with good cleanish sound, reliability, etc.

    Although, I did a gig a couple months ago with another band, guy was using some 112 Markbass combo, I don't know all the model numbers, but it sounded pretty dang good. Smooth and warm. Small, outdoor patio type stage, reasonable volume. It handled stage volume allright, DI sounded good. Of course, these guys were seasoned players. Nobody was doing guitar gymnastics or getting into volume wars.

    I don't know if it's the 'slickest', and it ain't that new, but the GK MB500 I picked up recently is a real animal!!! Through my SVT210AV it is downright SCARY!!!

    Anyone ever seen a micro power amp (no pre?) would love to stick one in my gig bag to use with my VT pedal as a backup amp if needed......

    All the power-only amps seem to be power monsters. I'm thinking a really small 2-300 watt amp....

    SWR AmpLite. I think Markbass has one now, too.

    For the price, I'd think a GK mb200 or Carvin's 250 watt micro head would be good small backup choices. Yeah, they're full-on amps, not just poweramps but cheap and you could plug your VT into the effects return, or use them by themselves for tonal variety. Peavey's IPR1600 is cheap power, not compact, but light.

    While I understand that you want to take your endorsement agreement seriously, since when did the SVT7 Pro become micro?

    :D

    I believe Carvin has some 1U class D power amps. Not micro, but still very light and at least only 1U.
