    I don't know of any clips online of them anywhere. I thought their instagram feed would have some but didn't find any there. My 1x12 has a Ghost in it also but I have nothing setup to record it with at the moment(and I suck at recording and/or playing guitar).

    I actually had Mike do a Marshall mod a couple years ago and he was awesome to deal with, and he got back to me with some information in about 30 seconds when I was looking to buy a used one-off somebody posted a while ago.

    I'm just not sure I have the patience to deal with a preorder and waiting for something these days.

    I will have to check out Kyle's new amp. May have to decide between that and PoweredByOmega's new 50w.

    My experience with Mike was great also. He is very responsive and takes time to answer any questions you have. The delays that ended up with me canceling my order was due to growth of the company and getting staff trained and ramped up. The pedal building side of things seemed to be taking a bunch of time away from everything else.

    Not terribly surprising. I suspect that is why they didn't start doing runs of the Meshuggah amp beyond the initial batch before now.

    Feel your pain man.

    Seems very interesting to me though. Weber knows their shit. This is the first I’ve heard of this company so naturally I’m curious.

    No clips and literally everything guitar wise on their site is out of stock.

    Yeah that's what I meant by maybe he was just being honest and not intentionally trying to be a dick lol.

    BlkTri is a small shop and if I remember correctly recently moved and getting things set back up. They sold out out all their inventory before Christmas. He also building out a studio so I think he's pretty busy.

    Having exchanged dozens of emails with Mike over the years that would be my bet :2c:

    Should find one of those pitch black JVMs and have Mike mod it.

    I don't really have the space to utilize a jvm410 right now, otherwise I would own one lol. When I get a bigger place with less neighbors I'm definitely getting one.

    Yeah, plus if it’s not something they do it’s really just a good recommendation.

    Fryette’s are awesome amps and I’ve heard many other builders say the same thing. If you want this, go to X company who does that sort of thing.

    I can see how someone could take that personal but I’m sure it was just an honest recommendation/polite no thanks.

    Still waiting for the flavor of the month types to dump their 5150 50 watt el34s.

    What's funny is I was basically asking him for a Natas/Satan lol. All I wanted was a hot-rodded Marshall, but modded for more clarity. But I think when he saw a competitor's name referenced (and he's probably had hundreds of emails to wit) he just fired back a quick response. Plus, there's always this...

    Now that I have the Le Lead here and setup on my pedal board, this is next on my list:

    And this:

    I'm also considering the possibility of upgrading the pickups in my Brice HXB2 37" scale 5-string bass.

    Never mentioned it, but I had planned to buy a Seymour Duncan JB for my RG6003FM to replace the Nazgul that I'm not getting along with, that came in sooner than expected, and now I'm going to be doing some mods to it to tweak the sound to perfection since I know I mostly like the JB to begin with. First up is swapping in some shorter fillister screws to see how that affects the tone. :)

    Ordering a Pearly Gates for the neck position tomorrow.

    Possible bridge pickup for my LTD AS-1. Kinda unsure about the JB in the bridge.

    I'm thinking about actually trying a BKP, because a friend won't stop talking to me about them. :lol: Looking into the Aftermath or Painkiller.
    Also considering the Fishman KsE set.

    If you like the EMG 81/85 sound, but wish the low end was a little more cleaned up, and also like coil splitting The KsE set is right up your alley. I can't say for the Painkiler as I've never tried it, but I did have an Aftermath in my Les Paul copy at one point, and it kind of took all the thickness that I want in a Les Paul style guitar and did away with it. Ridiculously tight, but not my thing.

    I do in fact love the 81/85. :agreed:

    Also why I was checking out the PK/AM. They were said to be similar to the 81.
