Well let me start off by simply saying wow. My Quinn SDO arrived saturday and all i can say is that the little wait i had would have been worth a wait 10x longer! I spent a great deal of time searching for a D-style amp and finally found THE one. Hopping to get some clips up in the near future. The touch sensitivity on this thing is absolutely amazing. And something i was really looking for that is a bit rare (at least to the degree im speaking of) is the ability to hear every note, every string of a chord, while still keeping the level of gain i want. Many amps achieve this when you turn the gain down to low levels but im running the gain around 7 and a half and every note rings out with harmonic beauty. If the sounds of Mr. Robben Ford or Larry Carlton are what you are after then honestly look no further. Just listen to the clips on the website its hard to find an amp as musical and as sonically pleasing as this baby. Shad does a great job of keeping in touch and getting you exactly what you want. I have to strongly recommend getting one of these things, especially while the wait and the prices are where they are. Ive honestly never been so blown away by an amp and i cant wait to continue with my rig with a quinn external loop and maybe in the future another amp now that im hooked, maybe an el34 bluesmaster SDO just to have that flavor too. But seriously do yourself a favor and get one of these puppies while you can. Thanks so much Shad absolutely incredible work. http://www.quinnamp.com/sdo.htm PS if any of you have any questions or want to know anything more specific just PM me.
