    Yup. That's how it's done... both by Lance and Dave.

    Great sounds but I am curious why every amp these days does not come with an fx loop and true bypass? I am curious why some amp builders are going the less is more approach...

    Because in this case the amp is very touch sensitive and based on a vintage design.
    Sometimes a loop is not a good idea.

    That was cool. Reminded me of an Audley Freed type thing.

    I can tell the amp really fired you up, which is what they should do!

    You can get it with a loop (from what Cliff told me).

    Great demo Lance! Gotta love this amp. I thought the DS came with 6L6's ?

    Yours had 5881's

    I always thought a tube rectifier based amp was loose and the bass was squishy in a way that didn't work for me... This one sounds like the bass stays tight and fat.

    Sounds like a winner!

    Thanks, Matt V

    Awesome tone! This might be my next one. Sounds like it's got an Audley Freed / Jimmy Page / Allmans / Hendrix kinda thing going on.

    "There is no effects loop - we don't need that here. These are not the droids you are looking for."

    ;)
