    The clips I've heard of the Splawn Nitro sound really good. Would love to play one of these.

    How about a Straub Cantus?! All handwired, great looking wood cabinets, and fantastic tone. It's basically a 1987 Plexi circuit with a master volume and boost feature added. All high- quality components. Plus Straub's customer support is exceptional.

    Do a search here and you'll see all the love for this great amp.

    Voodoo amps V-plex. More gain than a JCM800 and sweeter than a plexi.

    Splawn Quickrod....

    By far the best Marshall hard rock/blues rock-type amp I've ever played.
