So I have decided to save up for a cornford but not sure which one to get I was looking at the roadhouse 30 (has PCB) which is £735 or the Cornford Hurricane (handwired) which is £1075. I would prefer the roadhouse but does handwired amps sound any better than a PCB?

Cheers

Hand wired point-to-point amps are easier to diagnose & repair, but lots of high-end amps have PCBs-Soldano, Bogner, Fuchs Audio to name a few.

Try a Cornford RK100 if you can before you buy anything. One of the best amps I've ever tried, but unfortunately, virtually impossible to find in the USA.

Not to mention sturdier (handwired p2p), I've got one of those and they are built with longevity in mind. A great investment, especially if you are a hobbyist or someone with a steady job, you'll be keeping this thing for ages, and in case you didn't like it they would also sell faster & for more than anything else.

try them both, if you can. i haven't tried the roadhouses yet, but from what i hear, they sound a bit different to the handwired ones, so you may prefer one or the other. also, the handwired ones have quite a unique tone too, i like it (a lot, struggling with GAS for a carrera/hurricane myself ), but a lot of people aren't fussed and think they're just very dark-sounding. seems to be love/hate... they can also get quite modern-sounding and have quite a bit of gain, so again a lot of the vintage guys who don't like master volumes etc. aren't too fussed...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

^ yeah, you guys in australia seem to get the short end of the stick. it's bad enough here in the UK, but at least some of the stuff is made here, so we get half-decent prices on those...

ah, ok, thanks. that's the cheapest i've found it too. i had a £100 off ebay voucher a while back, and i tried to use it to buy that carrera, but as my paypal isn't verified, that was over the sending limit. was a bit annoyed... and now it means i'm not too keen to pay the full price...

Absolutely not. It all depends on quality of the components and workmanship. Not pcb vs ptp wiring. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a dumbass.
