    Is any familiar with Electric Brand Amps? The ones that are named after colors? I can't find anything about them. Googling "Electric Amps" returns nothing. And if you check the sites there's no info or reviews or anything. Is there any difference in the different colors? What are the characteristics of these amps?

    Did you keep clicking the amp to see the order, options and pictures with descriptions?

    I have one, it took way longer to get it than the quoted build time but its AWESOME. Mine is the mv120 which has el34s and I have the matching 4x12 loaded with eminence manowars. The deep switch changes the amount of bass it gets, goes from a marshally plexi kind of tone all the way to the left and it sounds like electric wizard all the way to the right.

    The 3rd and 4th position make the guitar sound like its tuned lower than it actually is and has a really sludgy and extended bass kind of tone. You can get the amp really clean with the fuzz rolled all the way to 0 and the master cranked.

    It took 3 months longer than the estimated build time, its not exactly a versatile amp haha but it has a very unique tone and the build quality is great. Also my green amp is easily the loudest amp I've ever heard, apparently they put out closer to 150 watts and not the 120 as stated
