    As most guitarist know Dougs HG100 is pushing close to 150 watts using a Class AB2 design. Its one loud amp.....I own one.

    If you need the HG tone in a lower volume package and the HG30 is still to loud for you, he now has the HG18. The HG18 output comes with 6V6 tubes, tube rectified and also can run on 6L6, EL34, 6550 etc.

    The Roccaforte Rockie is available as a channel switcher,
    same goes for the DDRS. These two do not come factory this way,
    but are available on a custom order basis.

    .........just thought I'd let you guys know.

    He's still going to do the ODDS. Maybe a VHDDS sometime? :Spank

    Thanks Brent!

    Kick ass... I really have to get something from Doug one of these days, I've been craving a Denelle 45R for almost a year... and the DDRS as a channel switcher sounds awesome. Damn.

    Doug,

    -Whats the goods on the ODDS?

    -Can you say who was the "famous amp" that it was based off of?

    Actually, the ODDS is going to be three different models,
    reverb, non reverb, and OD only. The "ODDS" has a different meaning
    than you would expect.

    I'm not cloning a Dumble, one just inspired me to do something different
    than what I've been doing.

    I think that Doug's ODDS (Ole dirty Doug scores) amp is supposed to be based on the Peavy bandit but with a more tubelike feel... :D

    Its huge sounding for only having two 6V6 tubes,
    and you can run the others too with a bias change.

    Hi Doug. I know I've been bothering you about HG or Custom 30's, but the HG 18 sounds like it might be better for me. When will we see specs and pricing on the website?

    So you took a turn down a different path than you usually go?

    Hmm, Octal-tube Derivative Digital Simulator? Has a bunch of classic solid-state amps in one box?

    Make sure you don't forget the true Punisher, the Peavy Mace!

    These are custom "one off" amps that I'm building
    using Custom 40 chassis. For pricing you can email
    me. I'll be putting some content on "one off" amps
    that I build on my site later.
