A new larger platform

Postby Dr.HI-TONE » Sat May 04, 2013 8:40 pm

HI-TONE has the 30, 50, and 100 watt Hylight era amps down to the "T".

No other amp maker is even close.

But what is next?

What I have been referring to as "Operation B.M.F."

Yes, they would be!
DR201 circa 1971 and SAP 200 circa 1969 are in the works.

We can make SE2150 cabs anytime, but shipping them is a real PAIN.
We have considered 1x15 cabs, 1x15, 2x10" cabs and we have a 4x12 bass cab that uses a different Eminence bass speaker that is pretty cool.
I still am working on a second 12" all purpose speaker that compliments the DR-F.

I hope to have some cool updates to the 200 W. platform today..........Just waiting on Fed Ex!

Yep, shipping is a real buzz killer isn't it!?! Those sound like good options.. Have you considered a ported 2x15 in a deeper 4x12 format also? I have an old jcm800 bass cab and that structure kicks but for both guitar and bass!

I am convinced the 200's will be the truest examples around.. Something for the convention perhaps? :mrgreen:

Will these be available separately? My 201 has been patiently waiting for a recap.
