Man, that is a classic look.

I, too, have been eager to hear one of the Grissom amps.

I've heard it was supposed to have a really nice Voxy chime to it. Anyone know if this will be an EF86/EL84 amp?

On FB, Grissom said this: "2 different amps........2 different wattages and circuits."

If Grissom worked as hard on his signature amp as he did his signature guitar, there should be some interesting tweaks there. Some might call it being picky, I call it getting it trying your best to get the tone you hear in your head.

I know that it's all way above my guitar pay grade, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the effort put in by David, Doug and Paul.

There's going to be a Grissom amp?! Where have I been? :laugh:

I'd definitely give it a listen.

I know back in the day DGh used to rip 50 watt Marshall's. loud. I hope the new deal captures some of that ferocity. Good stuff.

David is very hard to please, but I get it. It's his name, it's his craft, it's his reputation. He was very particular about the DGT guitar design. Everything from the color of the side dots to the tone of the pickups had to meet his extremely high expectations. Knowing what a perfectionist he is, I cannot wait until these new amps are officially introduced. I think we may be on the verge of experiencing a new high water mark.

That'a lofty statement!!! Doug Sewell has already made some of the best amps out there and that kind of statement really makes me anxious to hear the amp!

I said "may be". What makes great tone is very subjective and thankfully it isn't a one-size-fits-all type of scenario. However, knowing the kind of ear David has and his relentless drive for perfection, I think these amps will be very special. He certainly didn't let us down with the DGT.

well, things got hot in here, didn't it?
well, I saw some clinics with MR. Grissom at Experience and, although he is not my favorite player, he came up with a block buster guitar (I see a lot of DGT love wherever I look) and I am sure this amp will sound amazing. But those things are very subjective and it mays sounds stellar and not be my cup of tea. But this prototype looks awesome and I will check one out and I am pretty sure that I will need one very bad on my set up.

the story about DG's amp is so cool... ate least for me.
I am glad that my English is not that good, so I couldn't understand why all that anger and etc. anyway, back to the amp thing....

Seriously I know David has been working to get the "right" tone and sound on his signature amp. Yes he is picky, but he wants them to be perfect. He has often said when doing those Instore demo and clinics he didn't need to bring a guitar, because he could pull one off the wall and know he would get the sound and quality he expected. That's Shows confidence in the product and builder...

If this amp can replicate the awesome tone DG has on his tune Sqwawk, I guess my quest for an amp is over. All I will need to find next is a set of DG Sig pair of hands.

And I already have the matching Cherry Red Burst PRS, to boot... :wink:

You can already get the tone on Sqwawk... He used a PRS 25th amp and a Super Dallas; he posted which songs used what on his website. But yes, having DGh's hands and talent sure wouldn't hurt us mere mortals, either LOL!

Hahaha!! DG talked me into the Super Dallas at Exp 2012, and it took me 3 months to find one. I'm not letting go of it anytime soon, my friend. But if I do, I'll give you the first call. :proud:

If this new project is in the 30W range, I could be in a little trouble.:creep:

I just reread Sinner's post...

$*!&!!!

I'm really in trouble. Instead of spending money on gear I'm planning on taking my boys with me this year. Will they understand if I spend their return airfare on an amp?:dontknow: I'll just live vicariously thru Martysnarf, as long as he doesn't bring "The Duke".

Man - go to one minor league hockey game and I miss all the action!

Not sure what to expect out of these amps, but if they're anywhere near as good as the guitars, I think I know where my bonus is going this year... The DGT is pretty much a masterpiece in my eyes, and as much as I love my 408, I can't say it has totally replaced the DGT as my favorite. There are just some awesome tones in the DGT, and that neck is just the right size - it feels like it melts into my hand.

Now...where's the archives here????

Grissom at one time played a 100 watt 112 combo amp (reminds me of a boogie). Remembered him walking into a venue with just one guitar and that amp in his hand.
