In light of the multiple threads talking about his business practices I wanted to ask if there are any good alternatives that aren't outrageously expensive. In this case I'm asking more about the SW and RCA amps, not the ACs. I think Bad Cat and Matchless cover the AC territory nicely. I really love the clean tone on the SW22 and RCA35. The drive tone is fine, nothing to write home about IMO, but those cleans are real nice.
