No sir! The sunn has just been sold though. and i'm selling a jcm 800 too. but yeah, rigs-a-plenty over here.

Damn, those Suns are nice amps. I wish I would have had the cash for it.

Professor Squidbeard
10-18-2008, 04:14 AM
yeah, i just can't justify keeping it around when i've got so much debt and a bogner, diezel, vht, etc etc etc. gotta pick my battles. haha

10-18-2008, 04:15 AM
You have a Bogner, too? :lol:

Professor Squidbeard
10-18-2008, 04:19 AM
uberschall. it's pretty dope. i'm selling it right now, but we'll see if i like the vht more than the bogner and go from there.

Hmm, that's a tough call. I prefer my Roadster to both of those amps, but if I had to pick one, I think it would be the Bogner. I normally prefer 6L6 amps, but the Uber has a clarity at high gain levels that is simply amazing, and it is works great for both brutal metal and that big wall of sound. The VHT has more bottom end, but I just don't care for the midrange. It seems a bit solid state sounding to me.

Professor Squidbeard
10-18-2008, 04:32 AM
i've only had it for two hours so far(the vht) so i haven't had the chance to dial it in or anything yet. so far the bogner sounds better out of the box but the UL seems more versatile and tweakable. So, we'll see.

How close is that Model T reissue to the original?

I can agree with that statement. The Bogner is pretty much a one trick pony.

it's got a lot more gain, they changed the circuit a bit to modernize it a bit.

so uh, when can i come over? :D

Ambrosius
10-18-2008, 04:42 AM
I had thought about getting one, but I noticed the input was completely different (nevermind being 2 channel). Wasn't sure if it still sounded like a Sunn or if it was a bastardized imitation.

Same basic tone other than the gain?

Nate, here's some Sunn porn for you.

Also, the dude who designed the original Sunns Conrad Sundholm has a new amp company, I have no idea how they sound though.

Ambrosius

Indeed. Sunn makes me want to fuck things.

Hell, it's even so much the fact that he has a lot of them but more the fact that they're mostly top of the line 'high-gain' amps. I'd be more than happy with just one.... :rolleyes:

I have a sweet job, don't care about anything else, have lots of debt, one pair of pants and don't do anything besides the interwebs and play guitar/bass. life is good.

Cats are the minions of those who are truly metal.

My 3 cats say so.

Drew
10-20-2008, 03:54 PM
:lol: Buy another pair or two of Carharts, dude, for laundry day. :lol:

They ARE pretty damned tough, but if you have 3 pairs, each pair will last 3x as long because you're only wearing them a third of the time...
