But there are some "boutique" amps making the rounds these days, they just look terrible. And I won't consider buying them because of that. Appear like they are cobbled together from generic parts, and the aesthetics are the LAST thing the company thinks about. I'm not gonna name names, but some great sounding and solidly built amps look worse than 80's Peavey stuff. On the other hand, some brands look great! And I can't help thinking that we listen, at least on some part, with our eyes, and these guys are succeeding because of that. I don't want this to sound like 100% rant, in a way I'd like to help the not-so-good looking amps.
