    Anyone ever heard of this amp? all tube 100w head?

    I heard some good words about it over at Harmony Central, but I wanted to hear what non-brewtal people had to say about it?

    Well....doesn't matter I bought it anyway.

    Here are some pics.....sorry, but they aren't very good....

    I wasn't all too impressed with it when I got it home.....then I changed out, what looked to be the stock power tubes....with some RUBY 6L6s.

    Wow.

    If you want that 80's sound....this is where it's at. Even VH-ish tones.
    I'm not a big fan of that 80's sound normally....but when the amp grabs you by the nuts....you definately take notice.
    I'm a thrash fan at heart.....so with a nice boost (keeley RAT or FDII) it really chugged nicely.

    The cleans were even nice. Not as good as my X100B, but nice for a super high gain amp.

    I have one that I modded a bunch in the 90's! I have schematics if you need 'em. I was just thinking of pulling it out of storage, I haven't turned it on in like 12 years... maybe use it as a kit platform?, the trannys are probably very high quality.

    So I picked it up, and this thing is killer! It’s had some modifications — Torres tweaks to the tone circuit, screen resistor tweaks, but holy heck this is the best $150 I’ve spent this year!
