finally arrived from UPS!

Haven't had a chance to play it very much yet, only about 20 mins or so, but full review and clips to come soon. I have a big french oral presentation tomorrow and I've barely started because I was waiting for UPS all day

So far it sounds awesome and looks awesome as well. I need to crank it up some, only played at very low volumes, but it sounds really good!

I haven't fiddled with the EQ enough yet, but so far, its very responsive.

The voicing is different from any amp that I've played, its really hard to describe! It's very crunchy


I think I may have one of the most colorful rigs now

clips to come in a couple days, I've been extremely busy with school and I should be studying right now actually!

I paid $1920 for it. $1800 for the amp, $120 for shipping. I got it used directly from James Peters himself and he even fitted a brand new red headshell with no extra cost.


Here's a little clip of the Chimera that is not by me:

holy cow!!!
tell us more about the amp. how many channels? and which ones are they? is this the chimera? what are those switches on the front? how many watts?
#15
yeah

From Winnipeg, Canada, and I had to cover the taxes and exporting fees and all that bull. But it was worth it seeing how his amps go for $2000 used without shipping.


This is 2 channels, the Halo and the Chimera, 50 watts, with Tung Sol EL34B tubes. I might swap them out for KT88s some time though since the external bias system is the best idea ever.

It's got a low power switch which cuts the power approximately 40%, and it works great.

The awesome thing about this amp is that it sounds amazing even at low volumes, which my Splawn Nitro didn't. It's a very economical and efficient amp!

Anyway, I've never heard of one of those before, but I looked at it, and already I want.

You should definitely give James a call or even drop by and try out some of his amps! He is an extremely nice guy, one of the nicest guys I've ever dealt with and talked to.

#20
the build quality is absolutely amazing!

I'd have to say only Splawn rivals it in terms of build quality

The head is actually very light and a lot smaller than I realized. My Nitro weighed sooo much more than the Chimera and the Chimera is a good amount smaller. I think the Chimera weighs about 33 lbs while the Nitro weighed about 54 lbs..

My Orange comes in at about 62lbs - 'orrible - with one carry handle. My old SJ combo came in at 75+
I miss my old Engl for the fact it weighed 48lbs - which was some relief.

So kudos to you, I could flip that across the room, out the window and into the boot of the car.....not that id do that!

Sweet dude!




I can't wait for your clips. Your little Nitro vid was pretty sweet so I know we are in for a treat. You said he put a new headshell on does he have color options like the Splawn? Sorry if that was a noob Peters question. Glad you finally got what you've been after.
#26
Thanks guys!

I've had a pretty special week so far, first my acceptance into Georgia Tech, and now the Peters just tops it off!


I'm honestly not sure what sort of options he has for the headshells, but I've seen it in orange, red, black, white and a dark green. He doesn't really say on his website, but I'm pretty sure he would want to talk about the options he has directly.

You can tell people you're practicing your french oral on a "red head". Then tell them you are playing with your "peters". Should get a passing grade right there...

Congrats! Very nice.

made a short clip of everything EQed at noon except the Master which is a little under 9:00 and the gain which is at about 2:00. The normal boost switch is on.

Unfortunately I don't have any awesome recording equipment, just my little crappy video camera

The camera is clipping like crazy... especially when I turn it to full power mode.

I think I need to set the camera about 20 feet back now... it's about 10 feet and its still clipping!
