I still never found a shop in SoCal that actually stocked the amps, and this is based off of AI's site so apparently shops are dealers but don't usually stock the amps, just special order.
I just received my Ten2 amp yesterday and have been testing it out in my home, getting used to all the settings, etc. Right now there seems to be a tweeter issue where it breaks up/distorts when I strum full chords. I immediately wrote the company and they are sending me a replacement tweeter right away, great customer service so far.
Aside from that issue, the amp does sound extremely transparent and the quality/build is outstanding. The reverb is nice and the overall sound of the amp can be altered quite a bit with the lo cut knob and phase inverse settings(these really help per channel with low frequencies with transducers, mics, etc.).
I haven't tried it outside yet to see how well it does volume-wise for outdoor events but at the moment it doesn't seem like it would be loud enough. Which is maybe why they push the Ten2 EX extension cabinet on their site. Most likely though I would like to just put the money that I'd spend on an extension cab towards a Schertler Unico Deluxe(more wattage) and use it as a backup amp and extension cab at the same time (once they bring that amp version to the states. see Europe Schertler site, link on USA homepage). Email Schertler Europe and tell them you want them to bring the Deluxe amps to the USA like I did, every bit helps!
So Kyle, what do you think of your Ten2 so far? Any issues? Would love to hear what you think of the DYN-G as I'm using one too. At the moment I think it sounds too much like a typical pickup, very blanketed, plucky, banjo-ish and middy, unnatural in tone. I'd love to get a better sound out of it, maybe I'm missing something? So much hype surrounding that pickup but I've tried it all over the top and the bridge is the best spot so far. But, still sounds wah-wah middy like in tone.
My DPA 4099g and Bartlett Guitar Mic sound better through it but when the DYN-G is combined with either of those mics I can get pretty good volume and it levels out the unnatural sound of the DYN-G. Wish I had three channels on the Ten2 so I could run the 2 mics and the DYN-G. (one of the benefits of the Unico with so many channels)
