Are these to good to be true? I saw them in a local guitar shop. I didn't get chance to try them.

Combo is priced at £199.99 and head and cabinet at £225.

I can't seem to find much online about them.

I currently have a Squier Afffinity HSS and Vintage v100 playing through either Fender Mustang 1 and Peavey Vypyr 30.

I'm interested classic rock The Who, The Stones, Bowie(Spiders From Mars era) and Hendrix. A bit of funk in the style of Eddie Hazel and Nile Rodgers and some of the British indie bands like The Stone Roses, The Smiths and Blur.

i've got the bog standard special 6. it's pretty nice for the price but you can also tell corners have been cut. also QC doesn't seem to be amazing, I've heard complaints about faulty ones (of most of their chinese-made amps).

Also thomann might be cheaper.

i think offworld has the ultra, maybe wait until he sees this

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Yes I have one. That's amazing, that is basically what I paid for USED, maybe even cheaper (paid either $260 or $280 used).

It'll do what you want for sure, though you should play it to see how much you like it. If I could go back I would get something with a master volume.

It sounds absolutely amazing cranked up. I don't get to anymore, unfortunately.

What specifically would you like to know about it?

Cheers guys.

Reliability?

And can you get a bedroom level clean?


I have not had any issue with my Ultra. I can't speak for others though. If you can get it in person in a store, and it works, you're probably okay.

Bedroom level clean is easily attained. The wattage control essentially works like a gain control, but backwards (more watts = less distortion). Even at soft drummer levels you can stay pretty clean.

Cheers definitely.

I'm a clean to a crunch player. So was a bit wirried about head room.

Recently purchased the Ultra 6 on a whim, and I'm very pleased with it. It's got really good clean tones. Turn it up and dial back the volume a bit, and you'll be really pleased. The additional top boost allows you to really kick up the volume. My favorite feature has to be the built in attenuator though. Lets you control the wattage and how early the amp breaks up. At it's lowest wattage, the amp breaks up really early. Additionally, it's got an FX loop, which I have yet to use, and it's own footswitch to put you into the boosted mode. I've had it for about 2 months, and haven't had any issues.

This amp is a LOT larger than I had expected... approaching the size of my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, but I'm really happy with my purchase. It ended up costing me $340 new

Side note: I treat this thing like a baby, so I can't comment on the durability
