I just recieved my Trainwreck Liverpool from Ceriatone and I have to put my two cents worth in on the amp and Ceriatone. I was VERY HESITANT to order an amp from a company 10K miles away in a foreign land. I did weeks and weeks of research on both the Trainwrecks and Ceriatone in particular. I found it very odd that of all the hundreds of reviews on Ceriatone, I didn't find ONE that had anything negative to say. The "wrecks" are legendary, almost the unicorn of amps. There wasn't a chance in hell I'd ever fork over $40-50 THOUSAND dollars for one of them even if I could afford it. I'd heard the numerous clips on the net and I was convinced that this amp was what I was looking for. My main rig has been a GDS 18watter based on the Marshall schematics I built 4 years ago and it's never failed me, but I wanted that ONE amp where I could go from clean to insane feedback controlled distortion by twisting the volume knob on the guitar. Nik at Ceriatone was responsive to my various emails and helped me customize the amp to my particular needs. My style is "hard blues and blues rock". I've worked with electronics for over 30 years so I was absolutely knocked out by the incredible quality and attention to detail of the PTP wiring of the wreck. I'm sure he has a number of people building his amps and who ever trained them did a magnificent job. The work is mind boggling. Nik got behind a bit on the delivery date of my amp by a few days and with an upcoming gig, he worked hard to make sure my amp arrived in time so I could get it installed in the cabinet and get some playing time on it. I'm pushing an Avatar 4x12 cab with Celestion greenbacks and vintage 30's. About the only thing I can say about this amp is that it is a BEAST in every sense of the word. I thought my 18watter had great note defination, this thing never loses it even as you crank the volume up and the 3 stages of gain kick in. I'm running 4xEl84's and it sounds like somewhat like a Vox/Marshall on steriods then injected with nitrous. The amp response is amazing. I'm so pleased with the amp that I'm going to order an Trainwreck Express that runs El34's next. I've got to know what they are like after this thing. There are so many times we read about companies or individuals who rip consumers off, or products that are more hype than substance, but this isn't one of those time. Now that everyday bar burners like me can get our hands on holy grails like Trainwrecks, I expect to word to get out very very quickly what these things are really like. My kudos to Nik, he really came thru!
