Isn't 5 preamp tubes too much for an amp?


Would would that be too much for an amp? Many different amps have 5 (or more) preamp tubes.

These amps look interesting though, gonna check 'em out.

5 pre amp tubes is about right tbh
i mean most high gain amps have like 4/5/6.

i'll post a pic in a sec that might make you want to try them more

Yeah, exactly.

Pretty ugly looking amps in my opinion, no idea how they sound though.

WOW, really?
Link?

That's pretty awsome, I mean how bad can they be? All tube two channel 50w amplifier with reverb and FX loop for £199?!?!... even if it's not all that great sounding, that's worth it.

I am right in thinking that Wharfedale are the company that make the speakers in Vox AC30s?

do they have clips or something?
/lazy


No. I play through and Evil Twin, it has 8...

These look very interesting but nothing I should worry about. I have great gear and very little money (I sense there may be a correlation) so I'd best be happy with what I have.

Thought so, good speakers.
Let's see if they're good amps.

I've always wondered how somebody could name their company PMT music without noticing that it sounds like pre-menstual tension music, however, so you're saying that the SRP for the 50w head would be atleast £599? I'm not at all excited anymore.

I know that PMT is a website, I was just trying to be funny :P

How can the reccomended retail price of something be £199, yet the suggested retail price is £869, that's mental.

They'd have to sound absolutly AMAZING for me to buy one for £869, when they look like crap and they're made by a company who arn't known to make guitar amps.

They're good specs wise though yeah.

I'd appreciate it.

If they are cheap(ish), i may get one of those 50watt 2x12" combos for band practice.

I hope the actual retail price is near the recommended retail price.
£299 for a 50watt 2x12" combo is pretty nice.

"They look like crap"...?
Subjective.
Personally, i don't think they're beautiful, but they aren't ugly either.
I dunno why, but something about them remind me of a mix between Bad Cat amps and a Bugera Magician.

199 is the price they'll sell for, 869 is an imaginary number the marketing division came up with to make it sound impressive. We call it MSRP in the US, it's just a number to put on the tag to make the actual price look smaller.
#20
Do you mean that 199 is the price that Wharfedale will sell them to the distributer for, or that 199 is the price that they will sell to consumers for?

I've always thought that RRP and SRP where pretty much the same thing.

I have no idea how things like that work in the US, especially as you guys add the tax at the check-out and stuff.

199 should be what the consumer pays. Manufacturers don't generally release their wholesale prices.
