Ok, here are my amps, both are all-tube and handmade. They are not Boutique amps or expensive amps. They are one of the 2 popular tube amps made in Argentina as an affordable alternative to Mesa and the like.

The one in the left has 4 6l6 and 5 12AX7 with a sound close to the one found in the Dual Rectifier (its named Dual Metal so...). The black one has 2 EL34 and 4 12AX7 and has a JCM800 vibe.

Each of this heads with a 2x12 cost me about 800/900 USD. Considering a Dual Rectifier head would cost you more than 2.5k in Argentina.... well you can see why this amps came to existance.





Im very happy with both of them, and I wanted to share a pic.

Why dont we all share a pic of our rigs?

Ive tried the old cream (now VE Nu Twin) and they are pretty good too. The best sounding amp of all the Cream and VE line up is the is the Cream BS800 IMHO, but keep in mind its not a high gain amp. Among high gain amps, I llsay the the VE Nu Twin is similar to the Dual Metal.

Only a partial shot of my main rig (i have a THD amp that i use sometimes), i might take a pic of all the guitars & amps/cabs/pedals/midi controller etc when i have time.

The Rec Pre is ex-Pete Prown, who is an American journalist/musician as far as I know
