    These ones are EL84 based, but yes, I plan on offering octal based versions in the not too distant future.

    Hey Simon, nice amp!

    Does the 30 sound different than the 15?

    I have seen EL84 amps where the 4-tube version had a significantly fuller and bigger tone than the 2-tube one.

    The 15 and 30 sound very similar, although having four EL84s does add some thickness and obviously headroom...

    No, the Keep is not available yet. Unfortunately we met with long delays in the chassis manufacture. However, I do hope to have the first ones shipping in approximately 6 weeks.
    There is a waiting list, which I currently estimate at 3 months.

    Nice work as usual, Simon. Is that you playing on the demos too? You always sound good.

    Nice playing, nice sounds, Dana O.

    Does the 3 months include the 6 weeks or is that after the first ones start shipping?

    I am estimating 3 months total at this point. If that changes for any reason I will indicate so on my site.
