    Hey all!

    Just made this video of the new KSR Juno amp. Used a Torpedo Reload to track the amp's ouput stage and then used Wall Of Sound 4 for cabinet/mic sim. No EQ on the guitars, just the cab sim and an HPF @ 79Hz. Full mix with rhythm and lead guitars, bass, and drums. Guitars are also solo'd so you can check the amp tone out on its own.

    Cheers!

    Sounds awesome. From the clip, it reminds me of my Uber quite a bit, but has the extra high gain channel and more versatility if needed. Really cool amp there.

    That amp sounds pretty damn brutal. Starting to wonder if just like EL34s over 6L6s. I’ve tried both in my TC-50 and I prefer my 5153 EL34 over th 6L6 I owned.

    Thanks, y'all. It's KSR's first El34 amp and they did a killer job. It also has a Jose style clip circuit that sounds good as well but I prefer the non diode thing personally so I used the all tube gain stages for the video.

    I like 34s a lot especially in amps with lots of bottom end. They are glorious in Rectifiers.

    Thanks for the demo dude! Sounds pretty killer, can't wait to get mine.

    How does it compare to the Colossus?

    Hey man! Herbert has been gone for many years. Probably 6 or 8 months after I got it. Still have my Blackmore but the SE was just a loaner from someone. I have been using my Fortins for 95% of everything I do for as far as I can remember.

    Thanks! It has that KSR vibe which is lots of low mids and bottom with a not too bright top end. This amp is tighter than the Colossus that I used for the demos a million years ago. The clean channel on this amp is insanely good. The lead modes on Ch 2 and 3 have shitloads of gain and are useable all the way around. The Crunch modes are killer too. This amp will do straight up rock n roll all day long. It's my fave amp Kyle has built.

    Howdy from a fellow Texan. I subscribe to your YouTube channel, and I really enjoy your videos. Great production quality, plus I really like how you combine the mixed sound with the solo’d sound at the end of the video. I’d love to hear more of the Evil Pumpkin!

    Would second this. I haven't gone through a ton of amps but definitely a few. The Uber has been the only one I refuse to sell.

    I would love to compare these side by side. This KSR sounds so badass and could probably dethrone the Rev 2.

    Hey man! Thanks or the kind words. Really appreciate that you dig the videos that I do. I will definitely do some more EP videos in the upcoming months.
