    that's hard to argue with. I guess I just look at it from my own perspective which suggests 3k and even 4k are still materially different than 6.

    Why do people want anything? Some folks buy 2 gallons of store brand Vanilla for $6. Other prefer to spend $6 on a single pint of Ben and Jerry's. Different strokes man!

    This amp is more like $9/pint ice cream, with no evidence that it tastes any different from $6/pint ice cream.
    And you have to buy $6000/$9 = 666 pints just to try it...

    How is he getting that?

    Wasn't he using his TR Sig and a Dumble ODS on that tour?

    Yes, assuming taste in flavor or taste in tone is not subjective.

    I think you answered your own question! Curiosity. I also imagine that with the amp being produced in limited numbers, they want to make certain they get to experience it in person without having to wait for a used one to show up on the market.

    I agree with you. I can swing a $3k guitar or amp no problem and pay cash (or the next credit card statement in full) with no issues and not a ton of forethought/planning. I cannot, however, drop $6k, at least not without some advance planning and saving. Makes sense since we're talking 50% more.

    Yea, how is he getting that? How do we know he didn't step on his Klone pedal (or a tubescreamer type pedal) when he made that solo?

    His rig at that point was 2 TS-10's and a Marshall Bluesbreaker MkI.

    Katana -> BB1 -> TS-10. Guitar volume and tone rolled off a little. Lots of clean volume.

    So would I but I'd hide it behind some draperies so I wouldn't have to look at that ugly thang.

    Ok so his set with the trio, I assume him to be using a recabbed SSS 004, with the full band he's using the JMOD. They sound VERY VERY different. I think PS was filling your ears with ******** on that one. If the SSS with the trio is not the blue one that's been recabbed, that means two things, I'm wrong and the man owns three SSS. I saw him on Monday and the tones with the trio were big, deep, and aggressive.. loved it. If it sounds just like the blue SSS and I'm wrong then it's a great deal :) lol

    Probably because they were set differently, right?

    LOL sure.... Although it's not impossible, the filters do have a pretty big effect. Still unlikely, the JMOD is much more glassy and compressed. The SSS has a low end that will take your head off.

    here's the PRS on helpless from msg last night... solo starts at 1:45... then again 3:35... this was one of my favorite tones of the night....



    here's dumble 004 on bold as love... solo starts 1:52... he kicks on another pedal at 2:22 and that's when the tone really takes off.... clearer and more aggressive at the same time....

    $8500. Mmmm . . . well
    I think I would go for a 100w Reeves Space Cowboy for $2,800.

    Tough to compare with a camera phone video uploaded to YouTube, but if anything, I prefer the PRS's tone. Thank you for posting, btw.

    Also, on an unrelated note, why is everyone saying this amplifier is $8500? It clearly has a street price of $5,999, which, while a lot of money, isn't totally inconsistent with what Two Rock or Bludotone charge.
