1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    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.
