    Judging from the fact that 1000 are already sold means he's getting a full sized version. Or at least it is very likely.

    I have a feeling that PRS and Mark are working on a 50w 3 channel, or two channel with channel selectable boost.

    And the face lift on the PRS SE Tremonti this year. Just wish they would put the USA Electronics and pickups in them.

    He seems similar to the guy from Trivium in that he wants to have his fans be able to buy his gear.

    Dude can play $4k guitars all day. But if a fan wants to play what he does there’s a $600ish import option that’s spec’d just like his. Nice to see big name musicians in the last 5-6 years really pay attention to what their name is being placed on and taking ownership of that fact.

    I have a '17 Tremonti Custom, and I find the Tremonti "S" pickups get reealllyyy close to the USA pickups.

    EDIT: Getting into more detail, the bridge pickup surprised me because it feels tighter than the USA Tremonti Treble. Like I have to dial my amp back even more than I did with the USA TT. :lol: The Tremonti S neck I'm not sure, because I never used a USA Tremonti Bass.

    I agree. I don't care for Alter whatever and Creed, but it's killer for him to do shit like this. Glad he and Matt Heafy are always considerate for their teenage fans or fans that don't think that a hobby deserves $4k for something like an amp or guitar.

    Translated: he wants a sig product that sells well (affordable) and earns him the most royalties.

    Well yeah. That’s capitalism. But a $1200 import is often more money per unit and not THAT different from the monthly payment on a store CC financed $800 guitar.

    Especially when it may be going on Mom & Dads card.

    Very interested in this amp for recording. I wanted to scout out an Archon but now I've gotta add this to my adventure.

    Anyone play this amp yet?

    Sounds pretty damn good. I've been thinking of getting a lunch-box style head for practice and this might be one to watch out for.

    The clean channel sounds quite nice; I'm wondering how well this is going to do as a pedal platform.

    They are Chinese, to be expected at that price point though. I think the drive channel sounds awesome though, I may have to buy one at that price.

    Things sounds killer! Uber meets Recto! Been wanting a lunchbox amp to jam on at home, so instead of the 6505MH or EVH LBX stuff, I think I'll just hold out for this.

    Whoa I was not interested in this thing at all until I saw that it was only $650! That's an amazing price for what you get.

    It's too bad such a great player was wasted on such a horrible band lol.

    This amp sounds crushing. For the price, it's ridiculous. Would ike to hear some comparisons with the Archon after this comes out. I know it's based on it, but would still be nice to hear some comparisons, which will surely come.

    If it wasn’t for that “horrible” band you wouldn’t even know who Tremonti was. ;)

    I saw Creed back around ‘96 at Seville Quarter in Pensacola. They fucking rocked that first album’s material live. Tremonti has remarked that he always wanted to do heavier music.

    Met him during an Alter Bridge VIP thing. Five people plus Mark, all with guitars, in a room about 15’ x 10’ for a little guitar clinic. It was awesome and he was incredibly cool and personable. And yes, he’s an awesome player.

    P.S. Sevendust stole the show in Pensacola. :)

    A thread about a promising new amp and a random Sevendust comment thrown in? I must be destined to buy this amp. When I was in grade school I was a huge Sevendust nerd even though nobody knew who they were... And still don't lol.


    I'm surprised Alter Bridge gets the salt flowing on this forum. I haven't bought one of their albums in a while but I remember the first 2 or 3 being well produced, loaded with riffs and solos more interesting than most of the every day chugga-chugga choo-choo bands commonly referred to and Myles Kennedy being one hell of a singer. The dude even replaced Mark Wallberg.

    Tremonti’s Alter Bridge music is pretty great. But he’s playing “regular” metal. And unless you’re one of a handful of metal bands from the 80’s, many people write off any new metal band as boring/whatever.

    Just because they’re not trying to play a million notes an hour with crazy tapping in between every chorus.

    I mean Avenged Sevenfold wrote “City if Evil” one of the best/catchiest thrash albums ever, and look how much shit they get.

    Also, Tremonti’s tone is enormous live. Like holy fuck it’s so good.
