Wow! Just listened to some clips of the Minimat 2 on YT. There's a guy with a Tokai P90 that sounds absolutely incredible, nice speaker comparison at 2:50 too!

that sounded badass

i have a vague recollection of seeing that video before, though, i'm guessing that's the older version of the minimat?

Does anyone know what kind of speaker outputs (ohmage) & how many the Minimats have? Can't find it on the website.

Just nothing special sounding, there are those 'classic' sounds that a lot of people look for in an amp, whether it's a Deluxe Reverb, a Marshall Plexi or a Mesa rectifier, and I could get none of them out of the mofo I tried.

What are you looking for? I see you sold the Cornell, which is a lovely sounding amp - don't know why but I think of you as a Princeton reverb type chap

Have you got one for sale John? I have just looked on ebay and a couple of other sites, they are a bit out of my price range at the moment.

No I'm afraid haven't Pete The reissues pop up on ebay from time to time, I've seen them go for around 350, but try one first, you might hate it! What are you looking for in an amp? Who's sound would you say is close to what you want?

I dont really know what I'm looking for John,(but I expect you knew that.)
I have always liked the clean sounds from a fender amp but also want to get that creamy on the edge of breaking up sound. I thought that the Hayden amp sounded ok in both those departments. I really want a low wattage amp preferably with some form of attenuation or wattage reduction. Should have kept the Cornell I hear you say! I want a valve amp but after having made my mind up to get a Hayden I'm now back to square one wondering what to do. I've only got about ?450 at the moment, I had another ?300 but the MOT knocked the bollocks out of my amp money.

Pete.

?450 is a lot of money for a little valve amp, you have a big choice. I can't recommend anything in particular, just because Ii like it doesn't mean you will too! If you've tried the Hayden and like it than go for it

I'm still very happy with the combination of Egnater Tweaker 15 watt half stack and HD300 it does everything I want and I usually go off things pretty quickly if I'm not happy. Might be worth trying one out to see what you think.

I guess it depends what you want to do with it and where you want to play it.

Hi Dave , thanks for that, I have looked at both the local shops, Mansons and Project Music and neither of them keep Egnater amps but I looked on You Tube and they sound very good.
