    Synergy amps / modular amps

    Has anyone ever used one of these?

    Whenever I search for SLOs on Reverb, the first thing that pops up is Matt's selling a bunch of SLO preamp modules for it, like this:

    Matt knew his shit and their shop sells some really great products so I have to think that if they're selling these modules that they sound pretty good. I've never heard of the company otherwise though. The preamp chassis is $499:

    And then there are all sorts of modules for it:

    They have tons of preamps that are marketed with the same name of the amps they're... copying, I guess?

    The ones that literally have the names on them are codedesigned with the original people. Like Metropolis, Soldano, Fryette, Diezel, etc. then you’ve got the “800”, “twin”, etc that are the “inspired by”.

    The clips always seem to sound great. At $450 a module though, that shit adds up.

    I believe they are actually officially licensed.

    I actually liked the Egnater designed Randalls with the same concept that came earlier which are now discontinued better.



    I think the randall egnater modules work in the synergy ones though. Don't know how much of the same team was involved, I think at least some of the synergy guys were involved with the Randall stuff.

    Egnater designed the Synergy stuff. Fryette designed the 1U power amp.

    Yeah the Synergy stuff is actually licensed by the names that are on them, so they're legit. I think Ola has some demos of their stuff, maybe Fluff too.

    I think this is a really cool idea:

    Good built in clean channel, and then swap in a dual channel module of your choosing.
