    Anyone using, or tried the Park 45? They don't seem to be discussed much around here since they first came out. The clips sound pretty impressive. I've been contemplating various builders for a JTM45 clone, but I think I've read that the Parks aren't really JTM45 clones? Anyone know if there's any truth to that? But the clips sound so good that I may be willing to overlook that though.

    Any impressions of this specific amp would be very much appreciated.........especially regarding the cleanish to slight breakup tones with a Strat.

    I have a Park P50LTD from 2015. Recently had it converted to a P45. It was a easy conversation since my P50LTD was bass spec/black flag with tube rectifier. In both incarnations the amp sounded awesome. Now I have a Park 4x12 with the EC Collins Park Pinstripe on order since I enjoy the Park amp so much. I say go for it; Park amps are great and Mitch is a great guy. By the way I wouldn’t consider the Park P45 a clone. Mitch officially resurrected Park and he was with Marshall/Vox/Korg for many decades; doesn’t get more legit than that. I would say the Park amps are current production of vintage Marshall models.

    Thanks! That's going to be a gorgeous cab!!! I wish he was still offering the Top Mount 45 LTD. Those were really nice looking.

    Mitch is a great guy and every park I've tried was flawless. He gets it.

    Can only get so much love..Greg and George get a ton. LOL Yeah Mitch is peaches, his amps are FANTASTIC.
    I'd love to have that new lower wattage 20 watt Park with 6v6's. Damn thing sounded killer.

    Course I about melted my face off with a Park75 that was glorious as well.
