    I've got one hell of a week coming up as far as gear goes. I have a Komet Concorde, Louis Electric KR12, and a Suhr Antique Classic T blackguard coming on Tuesday. Should be a very fun day for me -- just thought I'd share!

    WOW!
    congrats. I hate you for having an incoming Concorde :D
    I want one. Not because I need it, really wouldn't fit my style probably. But Peter Thorn's youtube demo's seduced me :) Have fun this week!!!

    wow, thats quite a load for one week.

    I'd like to hear your impressions of the KR12 after it lands. I ordered the head version a few weeks ago from Cliff @ DAG but it wont be ready for another 4 weeks.

    You Massy Ferguson! Wow that's 2 incredible amps. I think your going to have more than one hell of a week. I had a Concord for a couple week got in a crunch and had to move it, incredible amp. I played the KR-12 at Cliffs place at Thanksgiving another killer amp. Matter of afact I would have bought one but I just made another purchase that drained my equipment piggy. Have fun and let us know what cha think about the 12.

    Yep, some I got some serious incoming wood.

    I've never posted sound clips, so this will give me the perfect opportunity to put some new home studio gear to use.

    I'm really dissapointed at the lack of good clips of the KR12 and other Louis Electrics. Maybe I can fix that.

    So that's where the term Super Tuesday comes from. Fat Tuesday. Your choice.

    Just for sh*ts and giggles, would be great to have A/B
    clips of the Komet vs. the LiverPull.

    Great idea -- same setup, just switch heads and adjust to match volume and EQ.

    I just spent the 3 hours in total sonic bliss with one of Lou's newest creation, my KR 10-12( loaded with a single 12 and a ten):dude:dude:dude F###ING RIDICOUSLY AMAZING!
    I'm fortunate enough to own one of Lou's KR 12's (a natural finish 100 year old pine) and a 2-12 Bluesbreaker.
    I sure hope amps don't have feelings because Lou's genius has me turning my back on ever other amp I own! In fact, I've been selling amps I swore I'd never part with.

    Lou's amps are totally inspirational to play!
    I look foward to hearing your impressions. Please give us a review.
    Fasten your seatbelt! Have fun!

    My KR12 has the 100-yr-old pine cab, too. I wonder how many he's done in this wood. Do you have a picture of yours? If so, post that sucker!
