    A friend of mine was a Brunetti endorsee. I got to play thru his 2x12 combo. It was nice but nothing I'd give up my Egnater ie4 over. The dynamics seemed very compressed. On the up side it had a thick SLO type distortion. YMMV p.s. we were checking it out with humbucker equipped guitars...

    If you think that is bad, try to find out anything about a Nicholls amp.

    Does the "liquid" part of the description on the website ring true or does it still have that harsh marshall flavor to it?

    Do you have any sound clips?

    I'd say closer to a SLO than a marshall... Yes it is smooth, not spikey. Compressed and liquid...

    Worth the price??? The customworks pieces aren't cheap in the states.

    Yes the liquid description it does make sense, i don't have any sample yet, cause I just got it, but soon, I'll record my new record with it so....
    i do like it a lot, i can totaly dial that VH brown sound.
    those custom work series are point to point handwired, by brunetti himself, thats why the price is hot. The sound is more vintage.


    The other stuff is really different, and more in the Mesa/Bogner range of price/quality.

    I wasn't impressed enough to give up my Egnater IE4... The product you are talking about may be a newer one that is different. Without hearing it I couldn't tell you. I can tell you that buying an amp unheard, especially a very expensive one can be very dissapointing.

    Why not take a trip to a store that has one? Or take a trip to a boutique type store with some high end amps and try a bunch with your eyes closed and see which one grabs you! You're in Nashville? anythingg like that nearby?
