    You are more likely to get your hands on a Unicorn.

    I won't go into details, but I will invite you to do a little research on Cameron. I have no personal experience, but his reputation is very well known. You'll figure it out.

    no need to apologize. :) The Cameron amps sound incredible to my ears just from a camera mic, unfortunately his business has been suffering from some growing pains.

    btw, here are some clips of the CCM. http://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=30181

    I wish that these were actually available. Love the tone of the CCM and CCV. They remind me of a more open version of my XTC. I know Cameron used to work for Bogner for a little while.

    They are available. I do have personal experience in dealing with Cameron. Like Luition said, they had some bad growing pains at the beginning but I know Mark has gotten some help and things are moving quicker now (not perfect, but quicker). The amps are simply amazing. I had a ten watt single ended EL-34 head that some jackass ripped me off on Ebay by saying it had all the great eighties tones. I got it it had about as much gain as a Super Reverb cranked (with none of the good tone) and was so dark you couldn't get anything 80's out of it. Mark modded it, putting his CCV circuit (jose mod) in the thing with a three way variac type voltage switch, gain boost switch, three way bright switch and added gain stage. This little thing will now go from Plexi cleans through VH and Lynch and even into Zakk Wylde territory. I plunked down my deposit a month ago - don't care if it takes until Christmas, these amps are the sh*t and I'll bet retain their value better than most modded-Marshall based amps.

    Nice cleans, but not outstanding. I'd like to try the CCM clean as Mark told me they are more Fender based and the CCV is more Marshall. I'm a huge fan of Fender Blackface cleans, eq'd warm and round and so the CCV's weren't the ultimate for me, but much better than most other high gainers I've tried.
