Hey Gerry,

I'm looking forward to hearing your impressions once you get the amp.
Not to hi-jack your thread though....I been also eying the Palmer Macht 402. At 3.8kg and 2x100w @8ohms it also looks promising (especially at the price point of 288€ (Thomann)/245GBP (Andertons))

I have also saw this amp and thought it would be a good buy.  I saw one second hand going for a very good price a few weeks ago, but I kinda had my heart set on the Koch.

I like the options that the Palmer has and would consider it had I not got two Velocity's, however, the Velocity Reactance vibe is a lot more appealing.  I dunno what that amp has inside it but it's very dynamic  It's not like a normal SS amp at all.  I heard the 150 isn't as good as the 300 also bare that in mind if you're making a comparison with the Palmer.  I'd love to try the Rocktron Mainline as well  :thumb-up:  But since we are talking weight here, Rockron amp get's ruled out.

The Palmer is very, very light!

Ok so the deal fell through, or rather I could not accept it as I was unable to avoid the VAT which drove the price up too much for me.  Shame.

The deal is a back on, the dude is gonna try help me out further on the price by seeing if he can get one with some cosmetic flaws that he can sell me with yet a further reduction.

Lets hope this amp at 90watts total is worth it.  I ain't spending £400 + on something that isn't going to destroy small buildings!

Fire Power!  That's loud Richard.

I really hope this amp is up to the job.  I can't fathom these guy's making an amp that will not be loud enough to play in a live band setup.  I go to 4.5-5 on the volumes of my Rocktron Velocity, at gigs with only two cabs may be about 5-6.  Come on Koch don't fail me  :facepalm:  I have the money, I just need to wait until the factory opens back up again after holidays.
