"Kinda hesitant to contact someone
on-line for custom amp mods and define "a sound" or "tone" your
looking for? It's like trying to describe the color
blue....where to start? Well, it sure helps when the fellow
listenin' to all your gibberish is also a guitarist and hears
those same little sounds in their own head, make's life that
When I spoke to Chuck at
Retro-King and mentioned what I was looking for, he responded "I
think I know what you
want"....he sure did. I had the amp back in a week, including
the two days to get it there, fired it up and nearly shat
myself, Chuck nailed it, first shot.
My amp was a custom built Plexi
in a previous life from another "boutique" shop, great work and
an excellent base for the mods. I wanted lots of thick lush gain
and still be able to return back to that old plexi clean with a
simple move of the jack.
Chuck put an overall "master"
volume in, revoiced the front end and added increased mid
control and now I have a fire breathin' dragon without pedals,
E.Q.'s etc when ever I want it and without hassle.
Granted, Chuck has his own line
of amps and could easily have given me a sales pitch to push
product, he didn't, instead he worked with me, to save a heap of
dough and make the best of what I had already spent much hard
earned cash on, thanks again Chuck."
