    I was going to suggest getting the 1x12 combo and adding another cab if need be but I see there is no ext speaker jack, dumb. The 2x12 only weighs 43lbs though so not a big deal.
     
  3. My knee really likes the 32lb 112.
    11lbs is a big deal for me.

    Yep, me too, hence my fun with the Pro Jr. It's really all I need. "Want" is another thing entirely :)

    I remember catching a show one night and the guitar player was playing straight to a Pro Jr, he sounded good but it looked odd to me as I was used to bigger amps on stage and at least a few pedals. I saw him around town a couple of times going to gigs or practice carrying his guitar on his back and this little amp and thats it, seemed simple and convenient,... I was gigging with a 2x12 Classic 50 at the time., oiy

    I was gonna suggest exactly the same thing, using the 'extra' money for the footpedal and perhaps adding an extension cab down the road. I didn't realize they didn't have an extension cab jack either.

    Impedance specs for solid state amps have to be followed. Unlike tube amps, if it says 'Minimum 8 ohms', you do not want to run two 8 ohm speakers in parallel if you are going to play loud - you are more likely to kill an SS amp than a tube amp doing that. Considering that (and the weight - the 212 being less than many 112 tube amps), I would probably stick to the 212 and maybe budget for the footpedal down the road. Or perhaps for 'under the tree'?

    I've wanted to try a Kat for a year now, but my local L&M doesn't stock them. They don't stock the TC50 either - another amp I'd like to lay hands on. I may have to get slutty and start perusing other dealers. On the other hand, L&M is saving me a lot of money by not tempting my oh so weak constitution.

    When I heard about the Katana amps I immediately thought of the Line 6 Spider Valve amps, I thought they came with some sort of tube incorporation. I guess these share more with the Line 6 Spider series, has anyone had a chance to compare the two?

    Yeah, I was talking about the Mesa there Lola. I just missed the part about the KAtana, so I thought you were going for a mesa for some reason.

    My Roland Cube 40GX states in the manual that the stickers should have come with amp and that you install them on top of the printing on the GA-FC controller. My amp was a demo and missing the box and other things so never got the sticker. Made my own with a label maker.

  13. That would've been my last resort.
    I bought the demo too, no packaging, no sticker.
    I emailed Roland. They said they'll put a set in the mail, n/c.

  14. Another thought.
    Ask them to also order the 112, if they don't have one in stock, so that you can do a side by side comparison.
    And walk around the room with each to get a feel for the weight.

    Brilliant idea. I thought of that too.

    Just goes to prove the theory that great minds think a like! :D;)

    Do you honestly feel that a 1x12 is plenty enough?
