    Has anyone had any playing time with these amps. I have a couple of them I took out of storage and they sound great, but I would sure like to know how to dial them in.

    thank you

    I thought they just made pedals. Although I think I recall that a relative built a "one off" Dirty Boy. But you say you have a few. Am I way out of bounds, or thinking of a different amp perhaps? :confused:

    No, Alex made a handful...less than 10 Dirty Boy amps. How'd one get a hold of several of them? :huh They were going for $4000 or more the last time I heard.

    I bought one from Chris R form Black Market some time ago and I can't remember where I bought the other one. They sound really great, but they are a little complicated to dial in. The cool thing is that that they have a Variac on the front. I'm not sure how to put pictures in a thread, but if possible, I will send a pic.

    thanks

    1) Upload your picture to photobucket (first make sure your photo has no spaces in its name [instead of Dirty Boy 1 type DirtyBoy1])
    2) Copy the "Direct Link," address
    3) Click the "Reply to thread," button here on TGP
    4) Click the little icon that looks like a postcard/mountain on the bar above (fourth from the right)
    5) Click in the text box and press CTRL + V (or right click and select paste)
    6) Click ok
