100 Watts of Rock N' Roll

This morning my new amp arrived from Splawn Amplification. The Splawn Quick Rod delivers some of the best classic Marshall tones with all the modern appointments. Loaded with 4 Mullard EL34 power tubes and 4 12AX7 pre amp tubes, this beast can dish out the rock at unholy volumes as well as lower practice levels. It's only been a few hours, but so far it's hands down my favorite amp I've played to date. Thanks to Scott Splawn for making an amazing amp and thanks to Derek at Rock Solid Amps for making it an easy purchase. I apologize to my neighbors in advance!

The only reason to play an electric guitar sitting down is if you have no legs. It's forgivable if you're too drunk to stand, but you'd better be rolling around on a stage.

I'm still alive! I just have too many projects going at once to post. I should have time this weekend to scan and organize drawings. Then I'll post a few every couple of days. Hang in there...

Just happen to come across your post. I was in a band with Scott for about 9 years. I just moved back from San Francisco and hang with Scott a lot. He is doing a great job with his stuff. He stays way to busy in his shop. Anyway, just want to give a shout out.
Peace
