    Never heard of it. Other user on the site, theghost, recommends Roland Cube.

    Mail ansar and ask him for clips. Be3 amplifiers are hand made all tube amplifiers.

    Ansar is a great amp tech he can make you awesome amps but his expertise is in bluesy amps

    @deepsal with all due respect you are way off base there...I happen to own one for the past 2 years and it is way better than all the chinese made crap that floats around passing for tube amplifiers around here...and yes i have played every thing from laneys to peavys etc etc
    Others can support me on this..

    @benchwarmer I have a custom built 2 channel 1x12 18 watt Be3 amp based on the solution 18 which is what ur interested in right...
    The clean channel is based on a fender bassman...which has the that beautiful bluesy bell like chime which we expect from a superlative fender clean channel
    the distortion channel is based on a hotrodded Marshall JCM 800 and has got the roar of a british made head...with a fat and piecing leads and good for your classic rock stuff.
    If ur into heavy metal too..then you can do a std metal zone/DOD in front of the clean channel which gives you monster palm mutes and great bottoms.
    Also if ur into multifxes till now...then great compatibility with them...i use the 4cm method to hook up my aging gt-6 to it...it sounds sickk
    in addendum the amps are hand wired and hence super reliable (no probs in the past 2 years)and Ansars a goddam genius when it comes to stretching your buck so just trust him on that...
    adios..

    yes i know the samples are outdated ansar kicks ass
    i am going to get a guitar 2x12 cab built by him
    and i disagree with what you said about boss metalcore pedal,it sucks donkeys,its an absolute no balls pedal mids and bass controls on it are non useable metalmuff is wayy better than metalcore

    I think he is talking about the MT-2 Metal Zone not Metal Core... Metal Zone has loads of mids if thats what you like... But the best part is its parametric mid control. Its good for outright metal distortion and not for Overdrive. It does not clean up at all if u turn down ur volume on ur guitar.
    Good for Zakk Wylde-ish, over the top distorted JCM800 tones.

    Let us know how the 2x12 comes out. I wanna get one made too

    You can always get one made ansar has been making cabs for years

    Yeah, but a few positive reviews would help...

    There aint no good or bad in the cabs only 2 things matter
    1st quality of wood used
    2nd its dimentions
    i am getting one built on a mesa 2x12 recto cab

    Hi guys, i understand this is an old thread but didn't want to create a new one for a related question.

    Where are you guys getting the price of the amps on be3amplifiers website? I wasn't able to find any mention of price anywhere.

    If you don't mind me asking how much did you have to pay for it? cos my requirements are similar.
