    AMP UPDATE:
    We have decided to add the adjustable noise gate to both HELLRAISER 100 (USA and STAGE versions) and the HELLRAISER 2-12 Combo (USA and STAGE versions) . This is an extremely cool feature and we think you will find it the most 'musical' gate you have ever heard!

    We will have complete demos up within the newt 3-4 weeks and ALL amps should be shipping to dealers by mid-July.

    Says the person who is entirely wrong. :rolleyes:

    Fender's output compared to Schecter's is the equivalent of comparing a Boeing 747 to a Cessna Skycatcher. For comparison, a small independent builder would be a large flying insect. :lol:

    Remember, Fender doesn't just mean USA Strats, it means all of Fender, Squire, Jackson, Floyd Rose, Charvel, SWR, Guild, Gretsch, EVH, Groove Tubes, Tacoma, etc. That's not even including the Kaman brands that Fender owns.

    Let's not forget our history here, Fender started out making amps at a time when the only folks making guitar amps were electric guitar makers. Apples and oranges.

    Imagine if Marshall came out with a line of Strat and Les Paul copies, folks would be bashing it left and right. :lol:

    I wouldn't exactly say that's mirroring what Schecter is doing with amps here, unless you think WAY less of Schecter than I do. :rofl:

    This may be a great metal head and have some nice features The Focus control/ preset eq curve sounds kinda gimmicky, but if it works. Ever notice how much more fine grain eq control bass amps have.

    The 4x12 cabs are a great addition to the limited guitar amplification options for the gigging musician designed for low tunings. With 3 standard vintage 30's and 1x12 175w powered sub w/ crossover, I hope they deliver.

    The other guitar specific options I have seen are the ISP Technologies amps and Rivera's Knucklehead Reverb 100 guitar head has a sub out for their Los Lobottom/ other sub.

    Not to mention that Leo Fender's specialty was radio repair. Guitars came about as a side effect of making and repairing amplifiers.

    Could they not have thought of another name than Hellraiser USA 100? They already have a Hellraiser guitar and Schecter USA is the name for the production USA guitars. Its like Ibanez calling one of their amps Xiphos J-custom 100.

    I do really like all the features though: Noisegate, boost, active/passive input, 100w to 50w, UK/USA.

    The Hellraiser is the name of a series, not a guitar shape, and the amp is being made in the USA. They have a budget line being released called the Stage series, also.

    sounds pretty good, just have to see what the MAP ends up being. Would like to see how it reacts to tweaking as well

    Sounds killer. Schecter has improved since I bought my Hellraiser C7FR.

    As much as I love Schecter-and I do love Schecter quite a bunch-for that price I'll have an EVH 5150 III or Randall Satan (when it comes out). Actually this whole amp venture seems like a kick in the balls from a company whose top of the line guitars are just above $1000. I was kind of hoping the amps would be the same story.

    They're doing a boutique, made in USA line of guitars now to go with these amps. They're also releasing a budget line of amps.

    Saying that their "top of the line" guitars are $1000 is even more fundamentally incorrect than that, because those are the top of the line in what has always been a budget line of guitars. It would be like saying that Fender's "top of the line" guitars are $1000 based on the MIM models.
