    Tele - Klon - Kendrick Reverb - S2 Amp / 1x12 open back cab. This is with a blues shuffle backing track. Levels aren't perfect - but you get the idea.

    Hahahaha... I'm not that good.... :D This is a fun amp - I personally enjoy this amp much more than my old BF Vibro-Champ I used to own a few years ago. The great thing about it is - you can put it on any cab that's 8 Ohms.... I have it going through a 1x12 open back with a Celestion in it. It sounds great - even with the "Voltage" around 1 watt..... My wife seems to like it too - since I haven't heard a peep from her since I've been noodling on it! What amazes me also - is it's size. It's friggin SMALL!!!! And VERY portable & light weight. It would be perfect for a coffee house gig or recording also!!! I really can't wait for the JTM45 model to be done so I can check out that beast!!! :AOK

    Thanks bro - not sure..... This is the prototype - and I love it - would love to keep it but it must go on to the next guy in line.... Too bad it doesn't have a built in reverb but the Kendrick does it job well.... IMHO - it sounds like what it's supposed to be... A BF Fender style amp.... Steven did a great job on this!! Can't wait to try the Jtm45... :D As - for the Klon - either you love it or you hate it - for I love it.... :D

    i can tell it's at speaking levels because you can actually hear the strings acoustically there too. now that's quiet. but with the klon helping crank things along, that's a pretty mighty full sounding 1 watt of power!

    E, that is probably without a doubt the best playing Ive heard from you for as long as I have known you. Face-melter bro, I can tell you were feeling it like Bill Hicks says always '' Play from your f**king heart! ''

    Still got the '65 strat? I would love to hear it through my new 1962 Brownface Concert. I think some roadtesting is in order.:D

    So - basically - by what I can tell - no one's commenting on this amp... Screw the fact that it's my playing - I personally could care less. This is a product that was basically TGP's idea and a builder acted on it. Now it's getting pushed to the end of the line behind a load of ridiculous threads that are so subjective.... Come on guys - let's try to show some support for someone that has actually taking his time to come up with a product we were raving about 2 months ago... (End Rant)

    and again - thanks to everyone who has commented on it!

    I love the quality of the tone. Everything I would expect from a Tele and a great old Fender amp. Not a ton of saturation like I would expect from a tweed, and not all of the refined tone of a blackface. Kind of what I would expect from a brownface.

    I flat dug it.

    Forgive me if this has been covered, but was any of that without the Klon? I'd love to just hear the guitar into the amp.

    Never mind, I found the earlier clip. More blackface by itself. Very hip.

    Yeah - a Klon with "BF" style amps is pretty hard to beat.
