• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Evil Robot question--18 watt vs 18/30 watts?

    I played through Trucks' Evil Robot (18 watt version) and loved it and am about to get one myself but I have a small time-sensitive dilemma: should I get the 18 watt version or the 18/30 watt version? I am wondering if anyone has compared the 18 watt version (2 6v6s) to the 30 watt version (4...

    greetings all, I have never posted in the guitar section before as I am generally more tempted by amps than guitars (as you can see from my somewhat crazed signature) but I just bought this incredible handmade guitar at Fat Sound and it is just incredible!!! I have the first production model...

    Twister Dust Devil vs. Goodsell Super 7????

    Has anyone played both of these amps? They are priced similarly and they both sound great in clips...I realize they have different output tubes (EL34 on the Dust Devil) and EL84 on the Super 7) and maybe they are just apples and oranges...but I find myself very tempted by both of these...the...

    I was bringing an amp for repair to Eric at Viking Amps and I got a chance to play his great new amp the Pillager. I got to play the prototype for the Pillager last year and I really liked it then but it is now even cooler and I loved playing through it! It is powered by 2 5881s and I am not...

    I'm lucky enough to live near Bob Reinhardt's workshop and he kindly let me visit a few times recently.

    now that the new version of the mini-plex with power scaling has been out for a little while, I am curious if anyone has compared this to the Badger yet. they are both obviously located somewhere in the marshally soundworld but how close are they? Given that it has power scaling, why the need...

    anyone out there own both the Swart AST and the little 5 watter?

    I have the AST and I love it but I find that it is quite loud for the distorted tones around the house. I have been using a Dr. Z Airbrake to take the edge off and it is pretty good but I find myself wondering if I could justify having the smallest Swart as a little distortion machine and the...
