    Since I am heavily into mfx, I just had to try an FRFR...

    I found an Open Box Headrush FRFR-112. The price was good and hard to pass at Musician's Friend.

    I only got to play it for 10 minutes, but I was amazed with the clarity.

    I look forward to play with it more! Not sure when...

    Nice, I've been looking at getting one of these. What have you compared it to?

    I have 2 of these that me and my bands other guitarist use (Im nice like that haha)

    And I LOVE them. People are obsessed with the big names (Friedman etc), but these are amazing for the money in tone and build quality/volume

    The only thing holding me back from getting one of these is the form factor, I just like the look of a traditional cab. Plus, I can neatly stack my mini rack on top of a square a little easier. I gotta say though, the price that they're asking for these is getting to be very hard for me to ignore. I was gonna upgrade my OG tech 21 PE60 with the new updated one, but this is seriously turning into a contender.

    Any experience with the Yamaha DXR10s? I have one of those right now and am torn between getting a second one and a Headrush.

    I bought the Headrush FRFR-108 and it's too loud for what I need half the time. Dead serious. I can barely turn the volume up without it being huge room-filling sound. lol

    I am super impressed but I may have to look at picking up something else in addition to it for a traveling practice rig that is quieter.

    What is the weight? Is it easy to lug?

    Enjoy and congrats

    I personally would just get the Headrush if I had the Yammy, because I like having different things for different flavours normally and having one of each is cool.

    But sadly, in general no I dont have any experience on the Yammys

    The Headrush FRFR 112 was acting goofy. It was an open box item. So, I returned it. They did not have another open box and can't price match the open box price, so I tried out the Headrush FRFR 108. I found the 112 so huge and heavy anyway. Sweetwater gave it to me for $180 +tax. I like it better! It is lighter, smaller, and still friggin' loud!

    More like 1000W/RMS, but still quite a lot.

    Manual states power consumption is 800 watts, so probably less than that

    I bought a mini speaker stand. I think I like my setup now.

    I might be bothered by the sideways brand sign though. I think I have OCD.

    you should get a second for a real stereo panorama. MFXs units do shine better in stereo...

    I haven't looked into them all that much, but I know as least a few of the Headrush cabs are identical to ones from Alto, and their logo is vertical. :)

    Yeah, I'm planning to sell my studio monitors and replace them with these 108's.
