Hellwin Amps (Made by Schecter)

Schecter makes amps now.

http://www.schecterguitars.com/News...-amplifier.aspx

I bet that thing costs a fortune, everything they make with his name costs twice what it's worth. Opinions?

Im interested to hear what it sounds like and get some solid details for it.
Potentially it could be a competitor in the uber-high gain amp territory.
But yeah, that is going to be so stupidly expensive...

I imagine it will be like most amps created by guitar companies= total shit. Also Syn's tone has always been bloody awful but who knows, maybe it will surprise me.

It makes them look hardcore. No sissy jazz or classic blues

But seriously, "Hellwin" was the best name they could come up with?

All the hardcore metal crap, and yet they still make stuff like the stargazers and PT fastbacks. They just can't decide which type of music they want to exploit.

Sig'd.
But yeah. I agree with all the comments here, the name will be pricey (Just like for Kirk Hammet and James Hetfield not to mention many others) and it will lack diversity as it's by Schecter, which are mainly played for Hardcore "teh br007alz" players. I'm a Schecter owner myself. Great guitar, but no way are the amps gonna be much good.

Schecter's been updating nonstop their Facebook page about their new amp line. They even responded to my comment on their cab with a sub woofer in it saying how amazing they sound. I just stopped there because of the stupid.

I'd like to hear it and play with it a bit before I make any judgment. But, I assume the name tax will be substantial.

What they need to do is make a decent mid-range amp that doesn't have Syn's 'signature tone' or his name on it - without his name on it the price might be reasonable.
