I'm disappointed already.... the tiny terror is overpriced where i live for what it is, so I can't imagine the dual terror would be any better in a value sense.

I'd bet my money on the fact it'll sound DAMN GOOD though.

Its going to be cool for it to have a second channel, but has anyone heard the "fat" channel? can chappers tell us anything about it? I agree the only problems that the original TT had was that it was overpriced, no loop, no reverb. I wonder why they didn't add those

I would say the big reason for reverb would be size requirements. After all if it got to big it would have to be called the tubby terror, lol. Reverb would be nice though.

overpriced - I saw it go for 400 new every time mark got one
no loop - effects loop rapes tone (subjective)
reverb - reverb is just an attempt to cover up a dry amp (subjective)

honestly my only complaint against the tiny terror is the master volume / preamp volume (ie "gain") configuration. Every time I played one, to get usuable cleans I had to put both on 10 and turn the guitar volume way down, which meant it only worked well with guitars I had good electronics in (so, not my strats lol)

Thanks, I just had a look and they reckon it will be coming in Jul 2009. Though with the exchange rates the way they are I reckon it will probably be around the $1400-$1600 in AUD.

Not sure if this is great value, might be worthwhile just sticking to my original plan and getting the original tiny terror.

But hey, this is good news for people looking to buy a regular one, bc people are going to start selling their old TT's to buy the new ones. But i already got mine, and the dual doesn't interest me :( :(

You might get 30w if you had 4 ss rectified el84s, or 2 tube rectified el34s. Not sure whats going there.
:confused:

Thats just a guess though ! I could be wrong. I seriously hope I am wrong as at that price im not sure if its such a good deal .....
It's not really that bad I guess, for 30 watts.. but I reckon I'd be able to pick up a brand new AC30 combo for the same price (albeit a custom classic... still very decent amps to my ears)

If they could do better on the price, or release a combo at the latter price, then that would make it a good deal I think.

I'd look into buying it if I could get it in a 2x12 combo for the same as an ac30.
