Congrats ..nice

played the Harlequin and MK50 ..never the Hellcat (i shall remedy that soon i am sure), the Harlequin is superb just a perfect little amp...the MK50 is serious.. and loud !!!!!! I went for the gain drenched ENGL Powerball recently so i hope playing a Hellcat doesn't make me tooo g.a.s.sy ;-)

I'm an mk50 player, and I can vouch for the awesome power of cornford.

jem/rg -> boss ds-1 -> cornford mk50.

the hellct is a wonderfull amp the tone is just scary. it can do what all the cornford amps can and then some.

i opted for the hellcat ove the mk50 just coz i dont need quite that much wattage from this amp.

I nearly came when I first heard the sound clips on their site... Is it that good in person? And if so, anyone looking for a right kidney in trade?

I found a really nice sound file of the hellcat in action. Go to www.intermusic.com and dig around for the hellcat review. It's a big file, but it's got some tasty tones in it. What I can't believe is the amount of sustain on hand....the note just rings then transitions into a harmonic oscillation almost like a Fernandez sustainer does. Amazing stuff...but I guess for $3500, you better get something good. Don't imagine too many of these will end up on the auction block (unless they are repossed by banks for default loans!!)

Gresh, I'll give it a listen when I get home. Then I'll go cry in a pint of a good british ale.

Yeah, at least I can afford their beer. $3500 worth of Bass Ale might take me a while, I can't hang like in the old days.

The intermusic site's been closed... is the file available anywhere else?
