Hey guys, I usually don't gush about gear, but if you haven't heard about D-Lab amps yet, you really owe it to yourself to learn more about them: they make terrific small-wattage amps at a VERY reasonable price. I happened to be browsing the Manufacturers & Retailers Emporium section a couple weeks ago and saw a thread about the one-of-kind Electro-Liner prototype for sale. MAGICboy bought it and had great things to say. He even posted clips. There was another amp for sale--the Helios--but it was sold before I had a chance to seal the deal. Well, Terry, one of the guys behind the company, emailed me directly and asked if I was interested in another amp called the "COPPER." He sent some pics and specs, and I was sold. Well, today it arrived. What a beautiful little tone-machine. Based on a Princeton circuit and running on a single 6V6 tube, it has shimmering cleans and a low end that belies its small size. Cosmetically, it's obvious that a lot of thought went into the unique design and the details. I couldn't be happier. Go to their website: www.d-labamps.com and look under TESTIMONIALS. You'll see my amp, as well as some others they've built. I probably should have stated this upfront, but I am in NO way affiliated with this company. To me, they're a class operation, and I'd like to see them get the props they deserve. I think a lot of people who come here would enjoy learning more about these great amps. Terry was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. Also, here are a couple threads--which is how I learned about them: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/322051 https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/330039 Anyway, I've rambled on enough. Time to get back to squeezing some notes out my new amp. Thanks, Terry!
