    Is MK one of the Trainwreck clone builders as well?

    How does Trainwreck and Dumble differ? How are they the same? Always wondered because they both come up in the same conversations. Is it simply price and rareness? Or is it more about tones? I know what a D can sound like. Not sure I've ever heard someone playing a TW - that I was aware of.

    Amazing tone and playing! Hope to hear from someone who's spent time with both.

    Very high level description here:

    Trainwreck = AC30 derived.

    ODS = cascading gain 'Fender on steroids'.

    I was expecting:
    #3. Send the amp to me, and I'll make sure it's properly disposed of.

    Mark Kane makes one hell of an amp!
    I recently had him build an Overdrive Special 50 watt combo for me and I'm over the top.
    My biggest gloat is that he lives only 20 minutes from me, and we can hang any time we want and tweak amps and talk gear.

    Not even close.
    This is how 183 sounds. The new Louis electrics Cobra is a 183 with a few variations.
    Shads info was only part correct, and it seems he even disguised things inside his amps other than gooping. This was built by unsoldering and measuring every part inside 3 different Quinns. Simply no comparison. This is around talking levels.

    Man, even at talking volumes that sounds amazing and I already know that little bit of harsh treble that you hear disappears when you turn it up.

    Also like Louis aesthetic and his logo.

    Cool stuff!

    That vibrato was tasty!
