well, i'm a convert..
Post by tekbow on Dec 2nd, 2010, 8:31pm

I started by bitching, then i grudgingly accepted the validity of them.. but i didn't like that i did..

then i played one..

JCA, you got me.. I tried a JCA 100 in a shop over here last week and it was insanely good.. It was in the posh amp room with bogners and mesa's and it just stood up against all of them.

I'm not saying it's the same as an SLO or a HR50 but for the money it costs, it blows everything else out of the water. It slays stock marshalls at twice the price, and i (and the shop dude who was itching for someone to try it so he could) thought it was was really up there with the aforementioned posh amps.

i feel dirty now.. like i've cheated.. laugh

No worries, lol. It's still Mike's circuit so you really only just kissed your sister, but only do that once..... lol

I gotta try one of these things...yes, made in China sucks. But it is what it is, it's not going to be made anywhere else. It has Mike's design, and his stamp of approval, plus rave reviews everywhere I've read. I'm waiting for the local Guitar Center clowns to get one in to try it out.

I'm liking the Jet City stuff more and more. Now thinking about going with a JCA20 with the Friedman HBE mod and metal bezel option. Since Mike & Bill basically ignored my request for a custom job, this seems like a no-brainer - and it would prolly save me a couple grand as well.
