The Joyo Dualklonz Multipath Amplifier...<br /> <br /> There's a number of YT videos & demos for this. Some very informative; some annoying; some very informative but still annoying...<br /> <br /> But in a nutshell (as I understand it) this amp is a dual channel analog 25w tube amp that can:<br /> <br /> ^ can use *any* power tubes (6L6, 6V6; EL34 etc)<br /> ^ provide multiple gain stage configurations<br /> ^ take multiple speaker loads & configurations<br /> ^ *replicate* multiple amp types (not digitally modelled)<br /> ^ be controlled via bluetooth with an app<br /> ^ it slices/dices/makes julienne fries<br /> <br /> OK, so I lied about that last bit...<br /> <br /> Is it too good to be true?<br /> What are your feelings/opinions about the concept?<br /> <br /> I know many of us may think "MIC gear (Joyo; Nux; Mooer etc) cheap crap".<br /> However I'm not so sure that is a fair and accurate assessment anymore. They all seem to have upped their game in recent years.<br /> <br /> FWIW, this amp is Italian design but mfd for the designers by Joyo.<br /> <br /> So what do you all reckon?<br />

Looks and seems very cool. <br /> <br /> I'm not a person that needs this flexible of an amp. I have multiple amps to use when I want these different tones.

"Heck of a price tag."<br /> <br /> Yeah they're going for $1600AU here, which works out to approx. $1250US.<br /> <br /> Not chump change but, other boutiques go for as much or more. Guess it depends on ones wants & needs.<br /> <br /> Me, I don't need one :^)<br />

For me, this sort of thing falls in with amps like the Kemper Profiler: if you have a studio and need a lot of versatility in the tone department and don't want a bunch of different amps, this may work for you. Also, if you're a knob twiddler (NTTAWWT) this may provide inspiration for your musical adventures. <br /> <br /> As a gigging amp though, there are too many bells and whistles. In general terms, the simpler an amp is, the more reliable it will be. Tone-wise, the fewer components there are in the circuit, the better the tone and response will be.<br /> <br /> No amp maker has yet cracked the code on an amp that is all things to all players. A good amp and a few good pedals is still king.

How different is this from the Mesa Boogie Triple Crown?

Mesa owner since '93 here.<br /> <br /> Nothing really compares.<br /> <br /> <br /> I've never even seen a Joyo amp (or dealer), and the "app control" aspect will be obsolete someday.<br /> <br /> <br /> IMO<br /> <br /> <br />

"In general terms, the simpler an amp is, the more reliable it will be...<br /> <br /> ...A good amp and a few good pedals is still king."<br /> <br /> "...and the "app control" aspect will be obsolete someday."<br /> <br /> All good points.<br /> And just FTR, I'm not advocating this amp and would never own one. I just thought it might make interesting FDP fodder.<br />

The thing will probably initially sell well to millennials because apps broadly appeal to 'em.<br /> <br /> "There's an app for that."

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."<br /> <br /> 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! ;)

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. <br /> <br /> I should just buy the amp I’m trying to recreate with this one. <br /> <br /> IMO, etc. <br /> <br />
