Cheers Gary, I had those videos on loop for about an hour. Love the overdrive sounds around the 2 and 6 minute marks.

Yup, Nicky's clip on the RF SODII sound really good.
That's my next one for sure Gary.
On a side note, I discovered just how great OD2 can sound with the Boost engaged.
DEFINITELY hot rod Marshall tones in there!!!

Dude- that Nicky clip makes me wanna saw my guitar in half.

The tone on those amps is like a mega bowl of Cap'n Crunch with the most perfectly chilled, full on Vitamin D Nectar...then you hit the boost, still searching for my perfect simile for that tone..Perhaps there isn't one..




Yet.

Thanks
I have a 50 w Zingaro, I use it at home and for gigs. I find its fine for at home use, I can keep it at a comfortable volume and not bother my wife or neighbors. I can great a real nice OD and clean tones at low volumes. It really sings when opened up though as do all amps.

I don't think you'll find much of a volume difference between 50 and 25 watts. It's only 3 a db difference - logarithmically speaking.

I know I asked Gary this in an email, but I figured I'd ask here if anyone else knows the difference between the standard Desert Sky voicing and the one with the RF tweaks?

Please tell me that if I incorporate these in my SOD II build, that I won't have to play "Politician"! LOL

I have that amp and it plays Poltician by itself when you first open the box to prove it's authenticity, but then it's over. The rest is up to you!

Man... Any amp that Gary builds is magic. For a blues/rock guy (me), playing a Santa Cruz is a stunning experience.

I'm awaiting builds of a 100 watt Desert Sky 6l6 and a 100 watt Santa Cruz EL34. I'm very much looking forward to gigging some of Gary's creations!
Now the difficult part, the wait... LOL
