    I wonder if these are being built by the company that does a lot of the CA based amps showing up in big box stores? (65, Morgan and others)

    Having had a rather bad experience with Milkman in general and Tim Marcus directly, I can tell you I wouldn't touch any amp he has anything to do with.

    Not in much detail. Let's just say one of his amps failed and he was extremely condescending.
    I was lucky I had a 5-day trial with the dealer and sent it back.
    Regardless, it was way overpriced for its performance.

    Slight beer off topic.

    I really enjoy watching That PedalShow now and again. Seem like solid guys. Appreciate that Dan is a rock/riff guy, not a blaze guy, for once on a gear show.

    But FFS. They’ve convinced themselves they need two big amps, in a Wet-Dry setup, to get a good sound. And then proselytize that. And that a “mini” board is something like 7-8 pedals, no tuner, PLUS a Fulltone TTE or some crazy Roland Space Echo repro.

    I mean, come on.

    (I still love those guys though.).

    The practical guy in me says if you want loud and clean as a pedal platform, get the current Hot Rod Deluxe IV. Turn up the clean channel and get onboard reverb. 40lbs. And a great drive channel. Done.

    USD 2600 for an amp... without reverb. Insane.

    Cheap could be good too

    For that money i would choose the 64 deluxe hand wired.

    I’ll pass. Way too expensive for what it is.
