Looking into getting a new amp

Postby Skinfection » 29 Jul 2018, 06:56

Something tiny (practice amp) that sounds good at lower volumes, but still has some "oomph" to it. After some research I'm leaning towards the Yamaha THR10X. Thoughts/suggestions are welcome :santa:

Yes. Portability is definitely a factor as I'll be using it to teach as well.

I have, actually. It was between that and the Yamaha; but after reading reviews and watching a bunch of videos I decided to pull the trigger on the Yamaha. It should be in tomorrow :ba:

At that point I may as well just start using my half stack to teach :redneck:
