I'm a very busy working musician and this is the first time I'm posting on a forum... I think 57gold has a few good points ( i don't agree with all of them ). As a working musician, you only have a limited budget to work with, so when an amp finally comes along that blows you away and you know that if you have it, and that it can take your playing and live performance to a new level... you save up for it for months or much longer. I know because I went through it when I found the Constellation. I like that Holger and Mike maintain production on this amp as it is a very inspiring amp to play. I grew up 2 towns over from Ken Fischer in Jersey, and first got to hear his amps (trainwrecks) played by BB from BB and the Stingers (jersey band). I was blown away by his playing and his tone and was extremely dissappointed when i contacted Ken to find out that he was no longer building them. Ken is an artist in his own right and I'm sure he has his reasons for keeping the amps from being produced... he's designed several amps that will no doubt go down in history for being awe inspiring, but it's also frustrating that so many talented guitar players are being denied the ability to create new art based on his designs while wealthy collectors hold on to them like baseball cards doing them an injustice. Builders like Greg Germino have shown that there is no need to get that vintage marshall any more... that the technology exists that a person in his home can build a marshall better than even marshall can. In regards to supply and demand, there are plenty of talented amp gurus in business right now, and there are even more electrical engineering students with amazing soldering technique and attention to detail that would be willing to work inexpensively for a building gurus, which could increase production and lower costs for everyone, but of course, that can appear to be a daunting undertaking for an amp builder who is used to working solo. My big question is.... Why can't Komet be authorized to build me a Liverpool? Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my Constellation and will be happy with it forever, but I would just love to know why Ken is holding onto these designs. He's been sharing his knowledge with ultimateguitargear.com, so I'm wondering why he can't share the circuits with serious players as well.
