    Someone has been reading my mind! Anybody see this one yet? Note the "mix" control for the reverb....

    The country I come from is called the Midwest.
    interesting -- I wonder if the vibrato is true Magnatone-type vibrato or just tremolo.

    Any word on price?

    Thanks a bunch, Hoss. I'm already suffering from GAS, and you serve me a big ol' steamin' plate of frijoles! Ouch...

    Great interview, BTW. Cheers,

    Rob

    Well, I got to try a prototype today, and I was totally enchanted. It has way more headroom than I expected...nice and clean if you want. I can't believe the reverb sounds as lush as it does, considering how small the head is. The tremolo works very well, and the master volume is great. The kicker, however, is that the trem footswitch has a power tap that will run your other pedals (well, some of them anyway). Too cool! I'm definitely going for it, as soon as it becomes available. Cheers,

    Rob

    Sounds like a winner. I think I might be pulling the trigger soon as well.

    Keep us updated. How were you using it? In the loop of another amp, or as an amp.

    Caught my eye too. But I couldn't find tone controls. Did I miss them?

    Next to the volume knob is the single tone knob; I didn't touch it 'cause everything already sounded so nice. I'll test it out next time I get the chance. Cheers,

    Got it, thanks. I play Brunos so I associated that one with the reverb. Oops! That is a very cool looking little amp!!!

    Missed this earlier....I had it plugged into a Matchless ESS (fave cab) so it was on its own as an amp. Worked fine! I do want to try it in the loop of my S/C-30 as well. Cheers,

    Rob
