Amp Trials

Postby Alain Benoit » Wed Apr 25, 2012 11:42 am

Based on the relative interest in the current testing of the H&K Tubemeister at Fluid Audio Group studios, we will be continuing with a weekly evaluation of different amplifiers for some time.

The period will be from Thursday to Thursday. The amplifiers will mostly be supplied by Long & McQuades.

I will be announcing on this thread what amplifier brand and model is coming up next, a separate discussion thread may be started by anyone and should include the brand and model in the thread title.
I will also be announcing this on our facebook page so please subscribe.
Anyone interested in trying one out in an unencumbered studio environment should contact myself or a FAG representative.

Well the Dark Terror and the YBA-300 are back at L&M after an extended stay.
Very favourable comments on the YBA-300 which is touted by L&M as a direct competition to the Ampeg SVT.
The Dark Terror was my personal favourite of this series for straight up TONE.
