I think the Tone King Falcon is kind of ugly.

The Galaxy cabinet is kind of ugly to.

Maybe even the Metropolitan that I own might be considered borderline ugly but I think its kind of cool. The most different looking amp I've ever owned.

It's funny, take that purple marshall, add some gold piping and a real 50w tube chassis and all of a sudden its' beautiful!

These look like the console of a time machine or spaceship out of a cheesy 50s or 60s black and white movie. Or a Delorian dashboard......But I'd like to spend a day with one ;)


Actually, this looks to the design aesthetic of a bio-med engineer. This could easily be something rolled-into an ICU, or surgical suite.

Would you like some reverb and tremolo with your caudery probe, doctor?

I don't tend to get mad at amps. Or guitars either for that matter. My wife? Different story!

Those Legend amps sounded as bad as they looked. Maybe the worst sounding amps of all time.

ZZ Top made about a jillion bucks with one - it's the only amp used on Eliminator.

A combo, Terry Manning, the engineer still has it.

Re Splawn:
My 7yo son says AAAAWESOOOOOOOMMME!
My 9yo Daughter asks if it's an amp or a suitcase.
