Just left Eddie Berman, (Indoor Storm). He just received shipment of three Lucky 7's. What a cool little amp! Seven watts of single-ended EL-34 or 6V6 power with an attititude. Just stiff enough for my likings. The dice even light up when the amp powers on. I still can't believe the bang-for-the- buck factor! Andy is sure to sell a lot of these. By the way, it takes a BB pedal Great! Check one of these babies if you get a chance.

It was a ported 1X12 CAE, (Custom Audio Eletronics), cab loaded with a Celestion Vintage 30 made by John Suhr. It's the same bottom that Eddie used on the website clips. The cabinet worked very well with the Lucky 7.

Nice sounding amp. I was a little concerned about the clean headroom, but it seems fine. I wish I could hear it pushed. I'm still gonna buy one though.

It is (after-all) only 7 watts, and was intended as a home and studio amp. Although I wouldn't want to drag it to a gig, it does get pretty darn loud into the right cab. I have a 212 V30 box for testing amps at the shop, and it's surprisingly loud. The Blackjack is the 21 watt version of the L7, and that has "more cajones, with the same tones". They start shipping Monday, and Storm has a couple on order.

That's nice! V good control from the guitar. I really didn't think that the BB improved on it.
Bet the Lucky 7 sounds great through a Celestion Blue.

Best, Pete.

I can't make out the EQ section of this amp. What are the front controls?

The clips sounded great, btw!

I've got my hunt narrowed down to this and the Fargen Bastage.

Here's a shot of the front panel. Keep in mind that this is the prototype panel. The production panel has the Lucky 7 logo and the red dice light up!

Nice! Finally a low watt amp with bass, mid and treble options. That's a big plus in my amp shoot-out.

How much does the custom tolexing usually run? I'm diggin' the purple.

I'm just the web flunky and I don't have a price for different colors, but shoot Andy an email or perhaps he'll jump in here when he gets back from where ever he was headed when I spoke to him an hour or so ago.

I played the Train 45 yesterday at IS, and man that thing is killer. It's loud though, but that's not going to deter me.:dude
The TDS50 is amazing as well, especially the note bloom at very low volumes.

We're presently currently stocking black, creme, red and purple tolex in the L-7, BJ-21 "flipped" boxes. No extra charge at this point.

The front panels are black (only) and the knobs are creme (standard sized) chicken heads. At this price point we're trying avoid too many options.

BTW: Although we are not stocking the many new colors now available for chicken heads, all the New Sensor, Weber and other standard set-screw knobs do fit. The pot shafts are metal and the knobs can be easily changed in the field.
