D. Kowalksi 1/2 watt sounds like a Marshall?

Guess these have been out for about a few years now, but I just discovered it. $349 USD I can see one of these handwired PTP MIA wonders coming to my house....I guess this Dark Gene is the newest version.

Very interesting. When I built my 2204 preamp, I discovered I liked it better without the tonestack because the tonestack didn't really do much (at least compared to a 5150!). So that "sensitivity" control that claims to bypass (ground lift? or just high resistance) the tonestack seems like an interesting idea.

It's a nice idea (if I didn't already have too many amps).

I also don't see an output transformer, that's interesting unless it's so small it is in the chassis?

Man I like it. the Green and Red version. Watched all 3 vids. Quite capable lil amp. Sounds great!

I could see this sitting in my living room for some hot blues/rock debauchery :naughty:

It would be a reach over & turn on instead of a reach around. My girl should appreciate the distraction/break.:agreed:
