    1987 50 Watt Plexi clone. I got the 1/2 power switch, FX loop and PPIMV mods.

    Can't wait for it to get here.

    Anyone else here play Ceriatone amps?

    I have an 18 watt TMB EF86. Nik is a great guy, and they build a nice amp. Very solid for the money. I got mine stock, but I'm thinking I wish I had an effects loop thrown in.

    Let me know how the mods work out. Esp the PPIMV and effects loop!

    Got a tweed champ about a year ago

    Worth every penny, I love it.

    Play it through 2 weber alnico sig 10S

    My friends tell me to lower volume...

    They are old...

    I just received a Ceriatone DC30 yesterday. Still in the honeymoon period obviously, but as of now my opinion is that it totally kills, in terms of both sound and quality. (In fact, the clips on the web of its overdriven sounds simply don't do it justice IMO.) I've played a friend's real-deal DC30 a fair amount and, while not an exact duplicate tone-wise, it is definitely in the same ballpark and within a few feet of the playing area IMO. I'm quite literally blown away by it.

    I bought a DC-30 and a TRAINWRECK type clone, and they are two of my very best amps, I want to get an overtone but don't have the cash right now, but will asap, get one Nik is the real thing, very humble talks no ****. Highly recomended.

    I play an Ceriatone 18 Watt TMB with London Power Scaling, a DC-30 and a Tweed Champ. All 3 are fantastic.

    I own an Overtone Special and this one is the real deal in terms of ODS Dumble clones. Great amp. Can't say enough good things. Totally impressed by Ceriatone.
