The amplifier world seems to be lining up for a high-gain war this year. A number of companies you wouldn't usually associate with high-gain amplifiers are releasing big, loud amps with loads of overdrive.
Here's a little run-down of what we're expecting:
- 65Amps are releasing a high-gain amp in their Redline range
- Yamaha are likely to have a new amp in their THR range, perhaps catered for live use
- Line 6 have announced a new amplifier, but details have not been released
- Rivera Venus Deux
- Fender Pawn Shop Vaporizer
- You can bet your last dollar on new Orange amps
- PRS Archon (new high-gain amp)
- Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb head
- Fender 57 Deluxe new edition
- Blackstar have something really cool, but we can't tell you what it is!
