How different is this from the Mesa Boogie Triple Crown?

Mesa owner since '93 here.

Nothing really compares.


I've never even seen a Joyo amp (or dealer), and the "app control" aspect will be obsolete someday.

"In general terms, the simpler an amp is, the more reliable it will be...

...A good amp and a few good pedals is still king."

"...and the "app control" aspect will be obsolete someday."

All good points.
And just FTR, I'm not advocating this amp and would never own one. I just thought it might make interesting FDP fodder.

The thing will probably initially sell well to millennials because apps broadly appeal to 'em.

"There's an app for that."

But it better have a cute logo.

No thanks! I've had a dozen amps throughout the years and I'm back to a single channel amp. It's where I'll stay.

Still not sure what an app is. Don't even own a phone. I'm definitely not a millennial.

It's the new buzzword for a program or software that's accessible via an icon, whether it be a phone, PC, amplifier, etc.

It makes my head spin but then my Mesa Boogie Mark IIc+ feels complicated to me. Eighty percent of my playing is through a '57 Fender Champ with an OD or Fuzz pedal in front. I think it's cool but if I bought it I'd never take the time to really utilize it.

I would be knob-dickin’ with it instead of playing songs.

"Tone-wise, the fewer components there are in the circuit, the better the tone and response will be."

After years of "experimenting" I finally came to the same conclusion. Always "sounded like me" no matter what I was playing....until I purchased my first Marshall. Now, I finally sound like everyone else! ;)

I'm guessing that's not a euphemism ;^)

But yes, it would be a tweakers' delight.

If I wasn’t forever fiddling with this amp I’d have it set up like a Marshall and leave it there - which drives home the most salient point.

I should just buy the amp I’m trying to recreate with this one.

IMO, etc.

I'll take a Princeton Reverb over this amp any day.

"There's a number of YT videos & demos for this. Some very informative; some annoying..."

If by "annoying," you mean the SpectreSoundStudios review, I agree.

My advice to that channel:

"You are 40 years old and you dress and speak like you're still in the eight grade. Get a haircut. And clean up this room. You have exactly one week to get a job, starting TODAY, because your mom and I will no longer be supporting you. We're selling the house and moving to Florida."

I have lots of great tube amps but my Classic 30 is the one I always think of as my Swiss army knife. Sounds better and better the more the Weber Blue Dog speaker breaks in.

I own a Swiss Army Knife but when I want to use a tool, I always go and get the appropriate tool from my toolbox and the Swiss Army Knife lays in its drawer.

Having said that, I like my Joyo pedals.

Great analogy, Coral Head!
