    I can’t even watch those Anderton’s guys. Had to shut it off. It was like Chappers and the Captain on a case of Redbulls. Calm the hell down.

    Agree!
    This is so much better. No talking, no drum crap ;-)

    Wont sell my 6L6 version because it never let me down. And the volume jump is solved with my Multi Concentric Boss MS-3 ;-)

    Andertons demos rarely sound that good to me. Not sure what the deal is, but their demos rarely sound good for metal stuff. Chappers just doesn't have an ear for high gain tones.

    And yeah, that official demo is MUCH better. Fuck I want it.

    Here's another demo -- my word this amp sounds amazing. Such a chewy, thick crunch. It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine...

    Haven't watched the latest vid posted, but the EVH official demo he has the gain up too high... it seems similar tonally to the 100w and that is what it sounds like with the gain up too far. The 100w EL34 has an insane amounts of gain.

    I'd basically only be getting this cause I wan't the MIDI capability, I'll just hang on to my 100 watt I think and save for a TC-50 or JP-2C

    Woah, that was quick! I kind of love the EVH/Peavey bickering, because Invective was interesting, but then this looks outstanding. The blue channel sounds killer and addresses all the reasons why I don't ever use the blue on my 5153 50 watt. I'd love to hear a comparison of the red channel on this and the standard 50 watt before I leap into swapping it out.

    Honestly for the price of the Invective you can get the Stealth EL34 100w if you have a good sales rep at your store of choice :2c: The markup on the Stealth amps is insane :lol:

    If they had variable wattage that would be more helpful for me, but $100 markup for the EL34 50 watt isn't too bad. The Stealth's tried too hard to be "limited" and ended up just sitting.
