I´m strangely lusting for one of these, after having a nice 1 hour long conversation with Steve on the phone, I must say he´s a really, really nice bloke!! and I´m still intrigued by a "little chopper", too.

Any slutz had first hand experience with the big trees already??

cheers tom

I have! I ran into the product rep and got to do an in depth, cover off get into it demo.

First, the amp sounds like a real amp. It's using the same output transformer as their little chopper amps. And it looked like an old carnhill to me. I'm sure it's their own design and spec....but it let's you know the level of attention they've giving to their craft.

It's also got a b+ voltage dump circuit so you can dial up the grit, and dial down the volume.

What I noticed is kinda what their video demos show.....lots of articulation, even at dense distortion. Also....this amp can hold a note like no other. Really beautiful tones from clean to Kerry king.

Inside, the amp is extremely well made. Stellar components, simple and direct layout.

I will be buying one as soon as fiscally feasible.

Any other reviews by users? I'm also very curious about this. Where can you buy/listen to them in the US? Surely someone in NYC sells 'em?
