    Who has one? How do you like it?
    Thinking about ordering one, any advice and guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    That's a new one for me. What does he offer that 100 other garage builders don't?

    His stuff is pretty over the top engineered. Been a great help on the metro amp forum over the years. Big money and long wait as my understanding goes.

    German builder, well respected

    Great , thank you. It’s good to know his reputation is good. It’s a lot of money and time before you get the actual amp. I was a little concerned.

    I think my favorite thing about this thread is how un-German this company sounds: Larry Amplification.

    Sounds like a company out of Peoria or Hoboken, not Deutchland.

    His prices have always been shocking to me, but props when props are due, the inside of his amps are spectacularly clean and well designed. Almost looks as if Dave Reeves had decided to do a high-gain channel switcher.

    How much is that "flagship" Dino amp, $15k?

    I would think about this one Rez.... I'm thinking the sound diff between what you have already and the Larry is not far off.

    @Rezamatix: Just wanted to say I love your amp demos. They are my favorite on the web. The Diezel Herbert, the 20th XTC, the KSR and the JP2C are my favorites of yours. I’m trying to do a similar video with my Carol-Ann. You’ve inspired me, lol! I’m probably responsible for a few hundred hits on your YouTube channel.

    I just saw this thread now. The flagship DINO 962 is incredibly expensive but not nearly $15K USD. Converted from EUR, it'd be about $8500 USD, fully loaded w/NOS tubes throughout. Or about $7100 USD in its most basic iteration with current production tubes.

    I've owned 4 Wizards in the past (3 MC I's and a Metal). There may be a bit of common ground comparing Larry's British Purist or Rock Wizard models to the Canadian made Wizard amplification products but no Wizard amplifier is even on the same planet as a Larry Dino when you get to extremely high gain territory. Same goes for comparing the clean tones as well. I'll elaborate further if there's more interest in this thread.

    Please do elaborate. What's the magic in the Dino vs. the others in high-gain land?

    Perhaps over 25 years of experience building production model amplifiers that have stood the test of time ?

    the high gain aspects might be true for those going in that direction... there is a point for me where high gain actually becomes counterintuitive to anything I call good tone (for me).. high gain just just masks what I'm looking for in an amp.

    Im looking for it all. I want the amp that can go just a bit too far, then I will back it off from there.
