    Mmmh, 15w 6L6 is pretty unique in itself. USA-expensive or Asian-affordable ?

    Yeah, the wattage's not exactly Tremonti-ish.

    I assumed it would have been a full wattage Archon voiced to his tastes. He used an Archon for awhile and he kept hinting it would have been one.

    Could be purely business driven. They will sell more units because it's more affordable, and they won't cannibalize sales of the Archon.

    $650 seems like a great deal for what you get. I have no need for one but I'm curious to try it out.

    Very cool! Really want to try one of these puppies out.
    Surprised that this hits the same price point as the EVH 5150 LBX series and is cheaper than the LBXII.

    there's a lot going on there for the price.
    so glad we are at the point where chines amps are no longer use exploding bugeras and one knob 5 watt amps.

    Yeah it is... I also seem to recall Tremonti saying he wanted something that sounded good that anybody could afford at some point.

    I wonder i it's gonna be voiced like an Archon with some of that Triple Recto flavor he loves? Try to get that dual-amp sound all in one box.

    I’ve never seen a small watt amp run bigger power tubes. I’m very curious. I have always hated the small sound of EL84s and 6v6 tubes, with regard to low end.

    ^likewise. I think Sodano did a 25w Hot Rod with 5881 power tubes, but that's the only other mini amp I've seen to use big glass.

    I've been an Alter Bridge/Mark Tremonti fan for years, so this is cool to see! Not sure I'd have a use for it, but I would love to try one out.
