I really don't need one... but I really want one!
I haven't tried the mustang but I have a couple of very small amps (the THR and Vox min 5) and a bigger modelling amp (Peavey Vypyr).
They all have their good points but the THR is head and shoulders above IMO.
I have the THR5 which is a good deal cheaper than the THR10. The effects are good, the reverb is fantastic, and the tube-like responsiveness is amazing. I'm struggling to think of a better piece of kit that I own.
I hope that helps.
As a friend of mine (who operated a shop for resale amps and guitars) said, "we don't talk about 'need' around here."
wow, is that 1st inning Cominsky park ? I've never seen that pic.
Hear, hear! Or maybe the normally mistaken use of the homophone "Here, here" applies in this case, as in "Here, too!" It's best to admit right up front that this isn't about need. In most of the gigs I'm doing, or am likely to do in the foreseeable future, I could make do with one or two of my Pathfinder 15Rs. But yeah, I want one!
An added bonus is I could use the cab of this thing with my Pathfinders.
So the amp is 50W @ 4Ohms and 25W @ 8Ohms. Wouldn't it have made a lot more sense to stick a 4Ohm speaker in that cab?
From a player's perspective, YES! From a marketing perspective, maybe they've got an additional cab with another 8 ohm rated speaker in it that they want to sell...?
And can we talk about "Beetle"? I thought this was a Super Beetle.
If they had just called it a small combo, a certain number folks would have cried that it’s barely a practice amp.
I don’t believe Korg owns Roland.
Okay, another short video demo of the MSB25...
I wish they had just done a higher wattage version of the other MV's. I don't like the look or feature set of this. Every demo I have seen of the other MV's sounds great. I'll have to look this one up.
Yes, they're tubes and were already being used as tubes in vacuum fluorescent displays before guitar amps.
You are right, they don't. My mistake. That'll teach me to believe things I read online without double checking
My first thought too.
Yeah but, what would we have to upgrade?
No. That cab is for use as a practice amp. Putting a 4 ohm speaker would defeat the purpose.
What's bound to bug a lot of people is that it's not cosmeticially based on the Super Beatle, but on the AC100. The Super Beatle had a trapezoidal head.
Besides that, both had a cab you could tilt up, which would have been useful on this. There's also no wheels on it.
Weber makes a 4ohm 10" 65 watt speaker that's British voiced.
I'd like to hear this unit at full efficiency. It might meet some peoples demand of a lighter amp to cart around. That's been brought up many times here in the forum.
If the head does produce 50 watts and had a compatible speaker. It might be a cool little unit for small combos and or mic'ed.
I am a huge Vox fan, but lately I feel like they're more focused on making toys than solid, gig-worthy gear. The AC-30, AC-15, AC-10, etc are all great, great amps. Why not focus on that level of quality?
Or, why not focus on making legit reissues of the classic Italian Vox guitars, like the Teardrop XII or the Phantom, instead of making arcade-prize quality guitars like the Apache?
I just don't get it... maybe I don't understand marketing that well. The only useful "toy" I have from Vox is their Amplugs, but even there the quality is low and there are a half dozen improvements that would make it a better product for not much more money.
Maybe I'm just bitter that they no longer sell the chrome stands for AC-15s to match my AC-30...
This doesn't make any sense. A 4 ohm speaker would not be less useful than an 8 ohm when used as a practice amp. A 4 ohm speaker doesn't require you to run it a max volume.
