DAR amps have got to be the sickest looking amps on the market. The tone that these amps produce is incredible as well. This amp looks like it fell of the Predators spacecraft. Apparently the Predator appreciates fine heavy metal.

This amp utilizes the 6C33 tube, which was designed to be used in Soviet fighter planes and withstand loads of up to 7G. The chamber holding the tubes is illuminated with LEDs that can produce just about any color in the color spectrum.

At first I thought the tube was just a gimmick, but the demos on youtube just prove how wicked this tube sounds.

Info on the 6C33 tube

Edit: I've added another clip. The first one just tells you about the amp, while the second one has a demo of some full on metal.

Cool looking amps !

As an aside, when the guy starts talking at 1.00 he reminds me of Ray Liotta in this commercial

Amp looks and sounds great! It's really interesting to read the history of 6C33 tube.

You're right, the resemblance is uncanny biggrin.gif

I've added a second clip to the posting, this one has a better demo of the amp with some full on metal riffage \m/
