Man I hope they release another couple of 15 watt lunchbox amps at Musikmesse. Maybe a 5 watt combo with a neo 8” speaker for grab and go gigs.
I sense the sarcasm. Well played.

Glad you can take some ribbing. :P
Ribbing? Like the ribbing seen on EL84 plates?
Kind of, more like the ribs you put in a lunchbox :lol:

Yes, they are getting it right. Very right.

Because when everyone else around me sounds the same on Marshalls, Mesas and EVHs, I rock on Orange Rockerverb MK1 which not only looks cool as hell, but also has a very distinctive sound.

I rarely see anyone playing EVHs or even Mesas around here but I do see a ton of Marshall. There is a reason you see a ton of them, they are very good, they are workhorses and used JCMs can be had for 1/3rd the price of most Orange amps. Having said that, I do love a good Orange amp.

How much was that and which model 800? 2203s tend to be stupidly overpriced recently because its considered the best marshall in the past several decades. 900s are way less and 2000s are dirt cheap.

It was a 1984 2204- last year of the vertical inputs and i sold it for $1100. Much happier with my rockerverb and laney

To quote Ade, "I was also under pressure to make a 1 Watt tube amp so there is a bedroom/headroom switch on the Rocker 15. This not only takes care of the above request, but also means that we are not following what other amp companies have already done."
