So here is a new EHX amp that I didn't see anybody cover during the actual NAMM show.

It's a reissue of the Sovtek amp of the same name from the 90s.


What I found interesting was that he said it will be "quite affordable".

It seems to be the year for pedal companies to issue amps. Wampler has one too called the Bravado. Great name that - in the long tradition of braggadocio amp names. Such as the: Deluxe, Special, Custom, Custom-Special, Deluxe Custom Special (OK I made up that last one). Actually, I think I should trademark the name Braggadocio (TM) as my new amp design.

They better hope they price it the same as what the originals go for now, or why bother? :p

I have a buddy with a MIG 50 and he loves it.

I'd not heard about this amp until this re-issue. Love to play one though. I wonder if L&M will bring them in.

they are rare-ish...and i believe i've heard prone to breakdown...

I had a Model 001 Mig 50, where they incorrectly labelled the one knob "presense". It was a very nice sounding amp, but was entirely too quiet for me. It had a PPIMV and even with that totally opened, both inputs chained together with a splitter, and both channel volumes at 10 it was too quiet... Maybe the MV mod killed the overall volume? Either way I had to get rid of it because it couldn't even keep up at jams.
If the new one is louder & doesn't have the same internal problems as the Sovtek's I would think it's surely worth $750 though. Great tone!

Daniel, there had to have been something wrong with yours - I remember those things having a reputation as paint peelers, loud amps.

I tried one in NJ, at low volume. I liked it but didnt feel I got a full idea of it. At the price, might as well check it out.

I was watching a youtube vid recently and noticed Josh at JHS must kinda like the Sovteks. Or he got a good deal. Like cheaper than wallpaper kinda good.
