    Yes I have. He's a local guy (Rochester NY area) . Not only great amps but a good repair tech too, and a great bass player.

    I like the looks of those big Hammond transformers! Dare I ask what he charges to build one of these?

    The price all depends on what you want, every amp is built to order as per your specs........ but one like mine should run in the $1800 range. Not cheap but considering it's 100% hand built, as you want it, I think that's reasonable

    I wanted to use one so badly in a local studio but unfortunately it was dead.

    I like a lot of people have been patiently waiting for the new Mesa tube amps. I know Mesa won't miss me but no reason for one now. I ran a 400+ for a couple of years and this sounds better to my ears.

    Someone asked the weight of the amp....... 51#, not too bad.
