!! WINNER !! "Randy designed more for Ark than any other company back when he started designing for and with me in '07, and many of those designs became the inspiration for future Phaez models including the Brawler, McClane and Corona Randy has designed for other amp companies as well but I cannot mention those" RANDY FAY (Owner/Phaez Amps) was lead circuit designer for these ARK AMPLIFIER beauties! He designs and builds incredible amps for cheap! One man shop. Canada. Strange he gets unwarranted 'knocks' ~ most likely from people who have never had him build a one-off custom (or regular production) model OR for that matter ever played one of his amplifiers.
