FOT we may have a winner for the mini tube amps with an fx loop

Image
The main features are:

* 2 channels with separate Gain and Master controls
* footswitchable Lead-boost
* shared passive three-band EQ
* serial FX-loop
* power soak 18/5/1/0 Watt
* TSC-protected
* preamp: 2x 12AX7
* power amp: 2x EL84
* Red Box DI-Out
* available as head or combo (1x10" speaker and reverb)
* 1x12" cabinet with Celestion speaker

If it sounds anything like the Duotone we may have a winner for the mini amp award for awesome sauce.

Shane are these available in Australia yet?

Nope, not to my knowledge. If it were only just released at MusikMesse you can forget seeing it anywhere any time soon.

And the Redbox DI is also an awesome feature for quiet recording.
I wonder how much crunch it'll get with the right tube combination.

I'm also interested in the 5150 III mini too.
