    Brandon posted about it on FB. No idea if that post is still there.

    That's what I said in my "thread revival" post. It was a post from Brandon on FB from about a year and a half ago. I never saw it originally but I didn't have to scroll down too far to see it on his page on my phone. Just curious if the amp was still around with anyone from here?

    That sucks. I imagine when Brandon went through EJ's/Santana's old SSS he didn't need to tear it apart in order determine what's going on. Just another reason why I'm against goop and such...

    The magic involved with getting an amp from a premium builder like Brandon is that they have intimate knowledge of component types, values, placement, lead dress, voicing techniques, and how to get the amp to respond a certain way. You can't always copy that just by probing around inside an amp.

    No problem. Brandon said they are really good for the money.

    I'm debating on them, the Warehouse WGS12L or the tried and true EV's in a new cab I"m pondering for my HPD.

    Kirby just killed it, very cool, both amps sound phenomenal and amazing. The one I am getting is the stock traditional SSS #5.
    But I would love to get the other too. Brandon did shoot me over this clip and he and I chatted a bit about both amps, just gorgeous tones, how can you beat this?

    I'll be getting mine in June 2018, and I'm starting to think about the right speakers, too.

    EVM12L, Eminence EM12 and WGS 12L seem to be the top contenders, but I'm still not sure about the differences between them.

    Saw this the other day. Forgot to ride the volume so got quite an immense shock when the talking stopped and the playing started.

    My only criticism is that they need a mic to talk into ;).

    I built two EVM12L cabs and yeah I went through the same thinking a year ago. That’s a giant awesome amp so great to hear you are planning the speaker/cab, btw Brandon I believe also will sell cabs/speakers although I went with Jeff Swanson on mine directly

    Great! Why did you go with the EVM12L's in the end?
