    Fuchs Train II - Smokes!

    Any Fuchs Train II fans out there?? Love mine but it's kinda rare to come across one. A go-to single channel amp capable of dialing in some "huge" killer cleans all the way to gritty & gainy lead tones! A real fun amp that's easy to dial in for any guitar/pickup combo. Mine is a 100w and am...

    Mesa Mark V - Wow!

    I am very impressed and feel a bit foolish that I have not given this amp a fair shake in the years past.

    I have experienced many amps that do one or two things very well, and own a few currently, like a JCM800 and a Soldano SLO for example. Far fewer amps do a great job of being versatile than those that excel at one style/tone. Obviously the is a reason for that in design and cost. A couple...

    Monster Cables Hype!

    Why is it that Monster Cables have a bad rap for being overpriced? I own several high end brands of cables including Monster and they feel and sound high quality to me.
