I don't think anyone feels "threatened". Who the fuck would feel threatened by this? Thats fucking stupid. You know what else is fucking stupid? Guitar forum hyperbole. I distinctly recall this happening with the Boss Katana... Except, suddenly the Katana wasn't the best anymore and a shit ton of them were FS in the classifieds. "FS: Like new, only played for 2 minutes" or "I bought this because some internet fucktard told me this was the best and it's not; infact it sucks ass."Lol I love when something new and inexpensive comes along and people feel threatened that their super expensive amp might not just be the best damn thing that ever existed
I'm a big Friedman supporter and if this little guy produces the goods I think that's awesome. For those that want to get into this sound but don't want to drop $3k, this could very well be a fantastic option. Big kudos to Dave for expanding his market reach. I'm just calling out the BS internet hype machine.
Edit: I'm just in a mood
