It popped up locally for $600, I wasn’t sure what these even sold for but I know they weren’t popping up on my previous $800 and under search, so when I saw I can’t find a used one for under a grand, I hit up the seller and picked it up this afternoon. Kinda having some immediate regret of not buying via a music store where I have a return policy, but I’ve only got 20 minutes on it.
It’s in mint condition and the clean sound is great, this amp definitely relies on a good sounding guitar cuz you’ve only got a Bass and Treble knob! I can get Channel 2 right at 2 before it gets too loud, what I’m not digging about it is how it’s taking dirt pedals. Maybe it’s a speaker thing, but wow is it not pleasing. It actually sounds closer to an amp model with no cab sim than anything else, regardless of the pedal I used. I dunno if this amp needs to be cranked or not to have a sweet spot with dirt, but yuck.
I plan on grabbing a Torpedo, I figure I can try some different IR’s with that and pick a speaker based off those to try out in it, as well as seeing how it sounds cranked. It was definitely a bit of an impulse buy, but I figure worst case scenario, I can probably flip it and make a few bucks even undercutting every other DRRI out there.
Anyone have any experience with these?
