    I thought those amps were only going to be sold through Blues City Music in Tennessee. I guess not.

    :huh

    I was supposed to go play one at Lynne Burke's (BCM owner) house, but never got around to it. It sounds promising though.

    I had spoken with Lynn a while back, and there is a difference between the amp that Lynn has and the ones sold by other retailers. Forgive me as its been about 3 months since I spoke with Lynn. I can't remember what the difference is.

    I bought my SLO from Lynn and Blues City Music. He was the most helpful and knowledgeable guys I have ever dealt with. He did a lot of things to make sure I was completely happy and as a result of that, I will be buying my next SLO from him. Now I have heard a few guys that had a very distasteful experience with BCM. I cannot for the life of me understand why people are turned off by the dude. He's extremely knowlegeable about Soldano amps and has every [Soldano] amp you would want in stock. I found him to be a very cool guy and very helpful. I'm sorry some have had problems.

    yeah, that Lyn fella was super cool, as I've bought speaker cables and a channel pedal from him before and he answered a ton of Soldano-specific questions for me when I bought my Lucky 13. He mentioned he was working with Mike Soldano on a custom Blues City amp (this was a year ago), so guess he wasn't making it up!

    I'm going to throw my two cents in as saying that while the guy may be very knowledgeable, I found him so overbearing on the phone that I would never even consider putting my foot in on a deal with him.

    The guy just would not get off the phone. I had a few very simple questions about Soldano reverbs and he could not stop himself from knocking my amp and telling me the only way to go was an SLO, even though I told him repeatedly I'm not a high gain guy and I'm not interested.

    I really can't stand that type of sales. I had the same thing with a tech down here who built his own line of amps. Every time I brought something into him for a bias or repair, the whole time I was there all he did was dog my amp and try and get me to buy one of his 3k marshall clones. Really quite uncalled for.
