1 BigJImSlade 1 month ago The Hotone products are very bad a$$! A year plus a few days ago whilst in search of a Marshall or Egnater tube amp head I posted a thread about which Marshally type of amp I should get. Mr. P suggested I look at the Hotone product line, particularly the Purple Wind (a '59 Plexi sound). These are solid state, very small, and 5 watts and have a neat glowing orange lamp in the small chassis to make you feel warm. I bought this one and have been immensely pleased. Got it for $60 on the bay used. Customer service is great, as well. Since then I have purchased the British Invasion (an AC30 type) and by golly it sounds just like an AC30. Anyway, I was playing tonight with the British Invasion plugged into my AC15 and it really rustled my jimmies. Just an update and thanks to Tim for the quality suggestion. I would certainly recommend these mini amps not only for cost but room. I will still invest in the sickness of more gear, of course, but just wanted to thank Tim and further recommend these as an idea for future consideration if you are interested.
