    Recently completed and shipped this custom covered Orangutan head and matching 2x12 for a customer in France who has been very supportive of 3 Monkeys since the beginning. It's covered in suede and I think it looks amazing, hated to see it go... Hope you enjoy.

    Also some blurry iPhone pictures of the custom roadcases we had built to go with the gear.

    Not an owner yet-but I love the clips from Wichita of the Orangutan. Hope to have a 1x12 combo someday in the near future. Maybe a suede one in a rusty brown suede would be nice.

    Hi Everyone,

    I did not think you put the pics of my amp here Greg! That's cool, it's fun!

    Actually this is my 3 Monkeys Amps Orangutan Stack Custom Suede Covered ...
    It is a 6V6 in AC240V (For Europe), the amp has a new footswitch for
    lift / boost system. The cab a new wood and the roadcases are amazing with the 3 Monkeys Sign!

    I am impatient to receive it and try it, it is currently in transit
    to France where a new guitar will join him in June (and Him
    his younger boutique amps brothers), a Teye Gipsy Guitar A Series Custom La Perla Gold Mother Of Pearl. I think 2 will be all beautiful and the sound is incredible!

    I thank Greg for his excellent communication, prices, work
    wonderful, high quality, speed, his seriousness, his advice ...
    Ossie And Brad and also the people around them ...

    This will probably be my favorite amp for a long time ...

    Greg, when you have 3 Monkeys gift items (stickers or shirts, wear) ... Think about me submit! Thank you.

    Nico

    @Nico: After I posted the pics, I told Ossie that I hoped I didn't give away your secret too soon. We were just so excited to get the rig seen. Hope you get it within a few days. We hope to have T-shirts and stickers soon.

    You guys are crazy if you don't buy one of these amps. 30-35 W to take it anywhere, play just about any type of music with it, and sound great doing it. Mine sounds fantastic, warm and fat or skinny and gnarly, best voicing and EQ around for different flavors. No pedals needed, although it does take pedals exceptionally well...and one of the most usable reverbs (and I am not a huge reverb fan). It is just an exceptional amp and really covers new territory sonically. They shoulda called it Deja Vu since when you play it you hear lots of things that remind you of the past to a certain degree, all those 60s and 70s tone but a cool modern feel as well.

    That covering is sick Greg...I gotta get you guys to do a head and cab up for me in something funky soon.

    I went up at the fret airport of Lille my Amp this afternoon! Packaging
    was perfect!

    I'm crazy about your amp, I have not played much, but I think it is
    the best thing I heard ... The clean sound is wonderful, it is very
    versatile, highly dynamic, reacts well to all pickups, instruments,
    effects, it has its own sound and many possibilities! Crazy! It's my sound, my favorite amp!

    When I play i heard the best Fender, Hiwatt, some Vox, sound saturated me
    Plexi think of a little more compressed and less incisive, it's very 70's sound while being modern ... Incredibly, this is not the clone, it's own sound 3
    Monkeys ...
    The sound can be warm, bright, snapping, you can do everything with just 6 knobs!
    This is crazy! It's perfect for jazz/blues to rock/hard rock...

    It is beautiful, light, not too expensive! The flight cases are tough and a good price and very well designed! The amp is compact yet lightweight!
    And the top is that for once, a boutique amp can be played in a
    little room, clubs, studio or stage!
    You have created the PERFECT amp! You can be very proud!

    I loved the samples, but in reality it is much better! I
    fan Divided by 13, now I'm a fan of 3 Monkeys is also good, see
    better, while being different and less USD! CONGRATULATIONS!

    The Reverb is crazy, but I do not like Reverb ... It is
    simple and beautiful! I like this reverb!

    The suede cover is incredible!

    The footswitch is very class, quiet amp off at ...

    BRAVO!
