The time for a new amp is in the near future. I really want to start dialing in the tone in my head, so I can stop worrying about it and focus on playing. Tone chasing takes up to much time from playing and progressing to the next level. I prefer playing straight into the amp, without pedals. However, I do have a couple of pedals that I wouldn't mind using if they help me achieve what I'm after. The old Marshall and Fender Amps were great as far as I've read. But it seems neither company makes them like they used to. I guess that's par for the course with almost everything these days. So, I've been looking at clones. I think Metropoulos looks and sounds great from the reviews. But they are expensive. I came across an amp builder named Sligo. I don't know if any of you ever played one of these Amps. They claim to use the best components and are much cheaper as far as I can see. I've seen some demos on YouTube and they sound pretty good to my ears. Has anyone been down this road? Any input, thoughts?
