I picked up this 18 watt (serial# 044) from a guy at The Gear Page about a month ago and it is really a phenomenal sounding amp.

Best wishes,

Chuck, great amp. I bought #15 off Ebay and was kind of giving up on boutique 18 watt amps when this puppy arrived. I played my first gig with it this Sunday afternoon and was laughing remembering your slogan saying this is the amp "every sound man will thank you for". read more.......

I have been enjoying the heck out of your 18 watt Plexi. It really is the Marshall tone I was looking for. Unbelievable tone.

Hey Chuck,
Man, just loving the amp. Had several people commenting on it at shows this weekend. I've spent a lot of time over the past couple years trying to find an amp that was working in both feel and tone,
and this Plexi 50 has captured both. I've done so many boutique and reissue amps, and this is the first to give it up on so many different levels. The tube rectifier really adjusts the feel to my preferences,
and the tone is so musical and not-harsh, that I keep blowing people out without realizing it. : ) Guess I'll have to make use of the master volume..... occasionally.

I attached a couple pictures if you'd like to use them for anything. The blonde custom sized cab really turned out gorgeous in my opinion.

Thanks again man,

Clint Milburn
