I've been a longtime fan of Kustom amplifiers (I own one of their solid-state 212s and it is extraordinary) and a while back, I saw that they put out a line of all-tube amps called the Coupe . . . looks like there are 212 combos, 210 combos, and a stack version, and I was just wondering if anyone has used them at all. For the price, I would hope they would be good. The only store close to me who deals Kustoms doesn't have any , so I thought I'd see if anyone here had any experience with them.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

yeah, i liked the one i tried. i wouldn't want to pay UK prices for one (£800/$1600 ouch!), but at US prices ($800, i think?) they're quite nice. you have other things like traynors to try too, of course, at that price.

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.

a store by me uses a coupé as the amp they put the guitars through. It seems very versatile, not the right amp for me because its a bit too high-gain for my liking (i'm a vox guy mainly with amps), but it is pretty good. not sure what exact model it is though, i think it is the 212.

apparently its like a mesa/boogie according to the guy in this shop, but i wouldn't know if this is true as theres nowhere by me to get anything other than fender, laney, marshall (MGs... ), line 6 or kustom amps...
Rig Winter 2017:

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

More like $1000-1200 for the combo versions. I wasn't really shopping, per se, just wanting to see what they sounded like. They don't "look" particularly high-gain (*shrug*), but if they are, then maybe I'll be looking to upgrade from my Kustom SS to a Kustom tube soon.

Describe the sound a bit for me, if I could get you to.

the coupe mesa-ish? not too sure... i guess it's possibly a little like an f-series, though. but not as modern-sounding on the overdrive channel.

The cleans are fendery and warm, very nice. nice compression too as you turn it up a little.
The overdrive channel is nice too, from what i remember it has quite a nice range. gets pretty high gain, but if all you play is modern high gain stuff, there are better options for $1200 (5150/6505 or xxx to name but two). I'd say it's a nice all-round amp, for someone who wants to play from clean to metal, with everything in-between, with no real emphasis on any one style.

I think. it's a while since I've tried one. at $1200 you do have quite a few options, though- traynor, peavey, engl screamer, genz benz el diablo, etc., etc.
