The Texas Storm 1x15 Combo from Homestead Amps


Oct 17th, 2016

The Texas Storm 1x15 combo from Homestead Amps is a beast of an amp. This is not a practice or hobby amp, it is a serious, professional grade tool that begs to be played on a stage. That's not to say you can't use it in the studio, but be prepared for a challenge. I have never had such a hard time capturing the accurate "feel" of an amp. The lows are full, but tight. The mids are thick and brawny. And the high end is bright and sharp, but never brittle or papery. Trying to capture all those things was not easy, but after some trial and error, I stumbled onto a combination of mic positions that felt right.

This amp was incredibly rewarding to play. Cranking it felt... really, really good. Knowing that I would only have it for a few weeks, I played it as often as possible. A few times I found myself lying awake at night thinking about the amp, seriously considering sneaking back down the studio one more time.
