I recently stumbled across this while looking into building my own tube amp. Andrews tread about his build sparked my interest. I was looking into low wattage tube power to use at my house without destroying people inside my room with 120db. Saw this nano head and then heard it on youtube, wow is all i can say, it sounds great from the clips ive seen. It seems to have gotten good reviews from what ive gathered and may just be a viable soulution for recording killer tube amp tone without killing your ears or your mics. they say its like a marshall tube head just 20db quieter. check it out here.... http://zvexamps.com/amp_view.html lemme know what you guys think

well, for $459, have at it.

These are popular, if you can handle 5 amps. And there are a lot of mods out there for this, a lot of people made it a project amp. I have one that I got before they raised the price ($100), I like it.

hard to understand how anyone lives without one smile.gif . If you do get that amp, do a search on mods for it, there are a bunch, you can get them on ebay also, kits.
