    Hey Doug, Right after I got my amp I had to pack it up as I was selling my house and moving out of state so it was over a month before I got to plug it in. When I finally got it set up I was blown away by how lively and responsive it is. Sustain and note bloom are excellent. Pedals? Pfft, I dont need no stinker drive pedals anymore, Thank you for building me such a great amp!

    Silver Custom 20 - Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!!

    I honestly never knew a 20 Watt amp head could sound this good. From a true Plexi to a bangin' Silver Jubilee in one amazing package. Build quality is off the charts fantastic, too. This amp was definitely worth the 6 week wait for me. I TOTALLY recommend this to anyone reading this.

    Custom Silver 20

    Posted by Matt Guthrie on 3rd Apr 2022

    After emailing Doug with some questions that were quickly answered I pulled the trigger and ordered the Custom Silver 20 and a matching 1x12 loaded cab. I anxiously waited about 6 weeks for my amp to be built and delivered. I ordered the Captain Crunch switch, the Saturation switch, the Channel switch, the rear mounted Depth Control and the Choke. All of this in a Sea Foam Green cabinet with Black and Tan cloth baffle cover and black control face plate with white lettering and white chicken head knobs. It looks Freaking Great. I had read several comments in some on line forums saying that these amps don’t really clean up very well. That was ok, I’ve got clean amps and need a high gain amp. Well channel one on this amp cleans up surprisingly well. It’s got a great edge of breakup but can also be dialed in to a very warm overdriven tone. It’s very articulate with the gain knob up to 6. I didn’t really try it above that since that was plenty for channel one. Using a OD pedal as a boost in front of the amp sounds great. It’s giving me the perfect amount of “more”. Channel 2 is an absolute fire breathing face melter! I have the gain knob on mine set at 4 and it is very crisp and articulate. If I turn it up it doesn’t seem to add a ton more gain. Each channel has a master volume as well. This is nice for setting the volume between channels equally or boosting one. Honestly the amp sounds best a bit loud. Loud enough to make my wife give me the evil eye. So probably not the perfect bedroom amp. I honestly couldn’t be happier at this point. This amp is going work great in my home studio when I need a great high gain sound.
