Better late than never, right? Back in May, I ordered this amp from Anthony at Sound of the Shoals. He’s calling the amps VintageTone now. Good communication, and he quoted me a build time of 10 weeks, which I expected would be a worst case scenario. Long story short, he ended up going a month over his estimate. The amp seems to be pretty much exactly what I wanted, though. Great tone. The tremolo is off the charts great. So three- dimensional. If I have one complaint about the amp’s performance, it’d be that it doesn’t break up until the volume is pretty much maxed. However, with the Eminence Maverick speaker, there’s a great deal more flexibility volume-wise. I’m an apartment dweller, and have only had the opportunity to really turn it loose once, during a three-hour rehearsal Thursday evening. So I’m just beginning to learn my way around the intricacies of this amp. I can say this confidently, however. This amp is going to be a perfect tool for small to midsize gigs playing blues based classic rock guitar. Tone for days. I’m not a techie, so I can’t really speak to the quality of the guts. But it’s running like a top so far. Seems to be well constructed. One other thing worth mentioning: I’m running NOS RCA tubes in this bad boy, all the way down to the 5Y3. Bottom line: I’d recommend this builder, so long as you’re fine with waiting for it.
