    5 Groundbreaking Fender Amps That Never Caught On

    5 Groundbreaking Fender Amps That Never Caught On

    Ever try any of them?
    Own any of them?
    Any you'd like to try?
    Thoughts?

    I haven't tried any of them but I'm loving the idea of the 400PS

    So you've been saying--but do you want to carry around the cabs you'd need to handle it?

    No not really. My 100 watt Ampeg V-4 weighs almost a hundred pounds and would be way too loud for most venues. A tube amp with four times the wattage would be all but uncontrollable.

    I have tried the Cyber Twin--and it was cool
    I have seen online that some people have had issues with it conking out--but others have had no issues--I wonder how they treat the amps or if some of them just got abad batch?

    You get a straightforward tube sound--as they have tubes--but you get the hybrid thing going as well with the modeling part
    I love hybrid amps--you can get a real nice clean sound & also get some grit.

    I never played a hybrid amp I was really satisfied with, which is not to say that they don't exist. I just haven't tried one.

    For laughs I have been looking on the internet for the 400PS- they are NOT easy to find

    Legend 50--great amps.
    The Outlaws used them for one example--I didn't hear about them until after they stopped making them--and every time I see I used one up for sale I don't have the cash at the time.
