  • Wangs amps (boutique amps from China)

    Has anyone heard of Wangs amps? It's an amp company from China and they are built by their small family-run company of about 15 employees. All the amps are made by hand with a lot of care basically but the price tags are attractive!

    So I got my HD-15 amp a while ago and I've been enjoying the amp quite a bit. The clean/crunch channel is supposedly based on a Bogner Shive type sound and the drive channel on a Soldano. So the clean channel is nice and bright and with the crunch switch you can push it up to british rock gain levels, quite cool! The drive channel has a very fat distortion character, quite unique! This is also my only amp currently that has 6V6 power tubes. I love my EL84 amps but these 6V6 tubes seem to work well with low-wattage amps also.

    Eventhough this is the most high-gain amp from Wangs, it's not a super tight and aggressive amp by default. With a boost it sure gets a lot tighter. In a way this amp kinda reminds me of an 'American' sounding Orange. So like a blend between a Mesa and an Orange in a way. Great for rock and doom stuff. That's what makes the amp sound so cool and unique though. I can't wait to try my mud-killer pedal through it to be honest! Should be great!

    The Wangs 2204 amps also look really cool, it's basically a 50w JCM800 clone. I really want to have one of those as I've come to really love my Marshall SC20H Studio JCM800. Has anyone ever tried one of these amps? Just curious about your thoughts...

    Of course I made a little demo/review of the HD-15. Just to talk about the features a bit and demonstrate some sounds:



    I'd love to know your thoughts! And since it's such a boutique company it would be cool to hear if anyone else here has any experience with these amps...

    Video isnt working, but then again no one wants to see you playing with your wangs. Could be my puter not letting the vid play too.

        Nothing like whipping out your wang at the start of a jam session . . .

          My Wang takes to a fuzzbox very nicely

            Wang and big muff seems like a natural fit.

              I don't know if anyone else is experiencing this but my Wang loves to drive the bottom end

                Wangs and Hotone should merge.

                  The wangcaster through the Browneye OD pedal into the Wangs amp......its like a wet dream for the adolescent sense of humour.

                    They appear to be made by Biyang which IMHO makes nice stuff for the money. That 2204 looks like a nice straightforward oldschool design inside but I wish it looked more like a Marshall instead of an Egnater on the outside, yuck. Also I see conflicting specs, some say EL84's and others saying EL34's, hopefully they are EL34. Either way pretty cool but I'm not on the market for any amps anytime in the near or distant future I already have my old school Marshall fix.

                      That's cool and all, but can you play Hendrix's "Little Wang" on it?

                        I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

                          This tech says the tube sockets are of poor quality. Otherwise, he doesn't object to the build quality of the other components.
