    Hi,
    Yes it is.
    Nails the old school plexi tone without the boost because that is what it is The boost just adds overdrive, it does not change the tone, and does not have any of that top end buzz when you punch in the overdrive.
    The only option you can get is the effects loop, no reverb on these amps, 50 watt EL34 only

    Hi,
    It is 50 watt. 2 EL34s 1 5AR4(I cant help it, I love rectifier tubes) and 3 12AX7s. Based on the Marschall 1987 mk2, with the overdrive is my own design.

    Hi,
    Im sure they are.
    Just contact Ullie at www.realguitars.de Just click the handbuilt guitars link on the top left of the page.
    There will be the customs and such, but Im sure he would send you one.
    he's a GREAT guy. (And as shamwow Vince says you know the Germans make great stuff)! Just tell him Rob at valvetech sent you.

    I had a few people asking, and since this amp is not yet on my webite, the head goes for $1299
