    Yup,

    I pulled the trigger on a Modena 60. I have not been this stoked about a piece of gear in years.

    Living in NYC makes you start become practical minded, the last 3 amps I've owned were bought out of necessity because others broke.

    Good amps, especially the VHT I had but It's been a while since I made a leisurely purchase considering everything that I want from a performance amplifier.

    I can not wait to have this thing arrive at the house. I'm going to make a bee-line to my rehearsal space as soon as it arrives.

    A big Thank you to Cliff at www.destroyallguitars.com

    Cliff is a class act, and from the Bronx too boot!

    Wow!

    You didn't waste any time on that decision.

    Congrats...sounds like a killer amp.

    I actually mulled over it for quite some time. I made a few phone calls and my thoughts were confirmed.

    Matte was gracious enough to give me his thoughts and impressions.

    Man, these amps seem absolutely killer. My problem is that I just dont think that I can justify having an amp that good considering I mostly play at home. But in case I ever change my mind, anybody care to comment on the MV on these?

    Also want to say that Cliff is awesome. He called me in Canada and spoke to me for an hour and played me some amps. Great guy!

    Yeah, you know I didn't make the connection at all then I asked him, "Your name sounds really familiar have you been listed on quite a bit of credits?"....He filled me in.

    It's a big plus to talk to someone with as much guitar experience as he has when making this kind of decision.

    No justification necessary. You enjoy it? Can afford it? Get it. You have nothing to prove to anyone.

    You are right man. However, I feel that getting an amp that really sounds its best when cranked at a volume that I will just never be able to play at most of the time is a waste of money. Thats why I am wondering how the MV is.

    The master is as good as they come. Nobody has one better that I have ever played anyway. As with all amps-better when played loud but these amps sound great at a whisper.
