    any reports yet? i'm wanting to know if the cleans/hairy clean/crunch sounds are there as well as the rawk overdrive sounds... or in other words, does it cover KR12 territory well?

    Yea, we're all waiting. The Ferrari sounds like it's a killer amp. I'm guessing there must only be a few around, making reviews tough to come by.

    there was one at the Chicago Tonefest a couple of years ago, as well as a KR12, V-12, couple Bluesbreaker types, etc.. I preferred the KR12, but others liked the Ferrarri. I would say that the KR12 was more diffuse sounding (old tweed thing), whereas the Ferrarri , while similar, was a bit punchier/tighter on the bottom. Could've just been the difference in cabs. The Ferrarri was used on stage during the jam and that little amp certainly had the ability to cut through.
    It would be a great grab and go amp for all but the biggest stages, i'd say.

    Spent some time w/ Lou when he was dialing in my KR12 a few weeks (got it used here last summer, and ohhh did he ever dial her in!) and said that the Ferrari is a rawer sounding and more ferocious KR12. One of his favorite's for sure.... only wish the one he was building had been done to fire up and try?!

    I used one of Lou's for a gig while he was fixing my amp- it was a bunch hotter than a KR-12, but the place we played was too small to crank it up. I sounded great, with my Les Paul 59 Reissue.
