Yamaha T100C Tube Guitar Combo Amp

I’ve noticed when a lot of folks are watching something, there’s usually a very good reason. Well, 51 folks are watching this American made Yamaha T100C Tube Guitar Combo Amp.

Seller says she “offers simulations of classic tube condenser and dynamic miss combined with studio-grade effects.” That’s high falutin’ talk for that she uses solid state electronics to reproduce tube…
