  1. My jaw is on the floor. This guy is freakin' un-real. Check out the way he plays and frets behind the slide (Like Sonny Landreth, no relation) Give the tune a bit to get going, 4:00-on is out-of-this world slide playing. I'm a big fan of Sonny and Derek Trucks, but OMG. One more:
  2. 2014 Tom Anderson Bulldog - Serial #01-23-14P This is a rare guitar as Tom got sued by Gibson over the similarity to a Les Paul. (It really is a Lester, only better.) I custom ordered it myself with a “Personalized” Quilt top. This is similar to a PRS Private Stock instrument as you can design it exactly the way you want and pick the specs, top, color etc. It is one of those... "It's all about the top" guitars. They don't get much better. Figured solid rosewood neck. I’m the original owner. It’s been well cared for in my non-smoking home. 100% factory original, nothing touched or changed. These are hard-to-find as Tom discontinued the Bulldog after a year. Single cutaway, 2 Volume, 2 Tone, 3-way switch. Plus, it has Push-pulls on the both tones for nice sounding and useful Single-coil taps. Quilt maple top in Gloss Burnished Orange with natural Binding. I ordered a hand-selected “Personalized” quilt top. Great dish carve too. This top is so nice, it actually looks like a 1-piece. Mahogany body. Solid dark full Rosewood neck with natural satin back. 60’s Vibe neck carve. Similar to a Gibson slim 60’s, but a little thicker and not whimpy. 11/16” nut. I modeled it after a PRS Wide Thin (My favorite neck carve) Locking tuners. Medium stainless steel frets with no fretwear. Sought-after vintage tremolo too. Tom recommended the H1 and H3 pickup combo. Nice clean H1 neck pickup and a bit more gain in the bridge H3 position. It’s in excellent condition. I went over the guitar from top to bottom and there are only a couple of pin size marks on it and a slight hazing on the upper back. Not wear, but just some slight dulling in the Nitro from playing. Could probably be buffed out, just wanted to give full disclosure on that. See pics. Comes with its Original Certificate, all case candy, tools, extra trem spings in original hard-shell case that is Mint, never out of the house. I've included lots of pics in different light to show the top looks amazing at all angles. Message me with any questions or if you want any more pics. I have it listed in a few places for more, but HFC family discount. $3,400. Shipped/Paypal (A Paypal Gift would be awesome on this one if you know me) Thx, Ernie

  4. Funny you ask! I just downloaded the latest firmware and you now get more mics, rooms and mic blends ! WAZA Tube Amp Expander Version 2: More IR Slots and More Microphone Choices The Version 2 update brings powerful new DI enhancements to the Waza Tube Amp Expander. Speaker impulse response support has been greatly increased, with the number of user IR slots extended from 4 to 32. More microphone choices are also available for the built-in cabs, including a new ribbon mic type, three dynamic/ribbon mic blends, and two different room mic variations.
  5. Pure Sixty-Four “Soul Maker” 5E3 Tweed Deluxe Head. Mint condition - not a mark on it anywhere. Works perfectly – no issues. All hand-wired. Custom Transformers. This is the "Hot Rod" version with a little bit more gain. Two 6V6 power - 20 watts. I’m the original owner. Kept in my non-smoking home. I custom-ordered it Black Tweed to match my speaker cabs. 2 channels, Normal and Bright (Great to blend them with a patch cable like you do with vintage Marshalls. Has the optional tone-shaping switches on both inputs for added guitar pickup matching flexibility. If you crave that Tweed Deluxe tone, they don’t get any better than Mark’s amps. $450. Shipped/PayPal. (A Paypal Gift would nice if you know me) Let me know if you have any questions - Thx Ernie
  6. The Boss Waza Amp Expander. This is an amazing piece of kit (Love that British expression). Some of you all may not know about it, or what it can do for you. But, OMG, its freakin' awesome. OK, here's my Top 10 reasons to have one... 1) The Amp Attenuator. Completely transparent. I cannot hear a difference between the amp direct to cab and through the Waza. It's that good. We all get asked to turn down at gigs by the soundperson. Its always a trade-off to run a nice tube amp cookin' to get 'that tone'. Not anymore. I can get it now at any volume. Crank the amp to your sweet spot. The Waza does the rest. It gives you 16 Resonance and Presence tone settings to tweak the tone and feel if you want. Like running a small low-powered amp into a 4x12 for a bigger tone or tightening up a loose sounding amp. Or, run a 100 watt head into a nice, easy to carry, low wattage 1x12. Better on your back! 2) Not only does it Attenuate DOWN, it goes the other way too. It has a built in 100 watt amp that can boost up a small amp. Say, you love your little Princeton or a 5, 10watt amp. Now, you keep the little amp exactly where you like it for a clean tone etc. Then, run that amp into the Waza. You can boost it up to gig level and still keep the small amp tone you love. 3) Built-in EFX. You get Reverb, Delay, Compression, EQ/Boost, Cab Sim. They sound great. And multiples of each effect, not just one type of Delay etc. They sound super clean and clear when they are inserted internally in the Amp section of the unit vs. an EFX loop of your amp. Sure, you can do either, but I love they way these sound here in the chain. 4) The Built-in EFX EQ Function is so useful. You can do different things with it. For one, I play all kinds of guitars, Humbuckers, Single coils, P90 etc. With the EQ, I can save settings for each guitar to match them a little better. Sometimes the Strats/Teles can be a bit bright compared to my Lesters. I can create a preset to match them better. Love this! Second, you can use the EQ like an EQ or as a Clean Boost or both! You can save each guitar setting as a footswitchable "RIG". 5) You can save all your setting (Not the Attenuator though) but all the EFX, Loop, Reverb, EQ as a "RIG" You get 10 presets. I have them setup for Lester Clean, Lester with Reverb, Lester Lead Boost, Strat Clean, Strat Reverb, Strat Boost. And a Preset with a custom EQ for my P90 Slide guitar. 6) There is an optional Footswitch. I bought it. It's OK. They give you new labels for the footswitch to customize the buttons. But, I just prefer a simple MIDI footswitch like the One-control Geko or a MIDI Mouse to change the RIGS. Again, you might dig it more than me. The Waza and footswitch do have some cool functions. Like you can channel change your amp (2-channel amps only) as well as turn EFX, Tap time, Boost/EQ and Loop on/off. I just prefer to simply change the RIGs to do that. You can program so much with MIDI, the Boss footswitch or just use any old footswitch to change EFX on/off if you want. Pretty flexible. 7) There is also a Normal EFX Loop in the Waza. This loop sounds better when inserting my own fav EFX (Ventilator Rotary, Chorus etc) here instead of running them into my amp head loop (Friedman Runt 20 is my fav at the moment) I've never really played with the Serial vs Parallel EFX loop routing options on some heads. I absolutely love the Parallel routing. Serial runs all the outboard EFX full direct which is what most EFX Loops do. Parallel blends both together. You get more of your original signal with the EFX blended in. I sometime find the EFX doesn't always have a mix control (like the Mini Vent rotary) it's really heavy. Now, it sounds perfecto, much bigger and cleaner. Your mileage may vary, but to me, its a no-brainer. (8) Cab Simulation and XLR Output. Perfect for running to FOH, sounds great. 22 Mic'd Cabs, 9 Speaker Mic types, 5 Room mic types. Plus, you can import 32 of your own speaker cab IR impulses if you want. The choices are huge. 9) USB in/out for sending your full amp tone and cab sim to a sound card. Also, a really easy to use Computer Editor for all this. Mac/PC compatible. They do need an iPad app, but I bet soon! 10) It's built like a brick house. Solid!! Comes with included Rackmount ears, if you want to put it in a case. Negatives... Not many. First, I don't really find the Boss footswitch to work for me. Mostly because you cannot tell which RIG you are on. It just steps through the 10, one at a time. I like the MIDI pedal option as I can tell I'm on RIG 3 and know it's 3. Second, the unit is pretty big, like a small size head. Not a deal-breaker, but, I was surprised at the size. Buy one, you will thank me. Ernie
  7. It's not a hard amp to play. Unlike a Two-Rock or a Fuchs, those show every nuance of your playing and you can sound pretty bad if you're sloppy. The Matchless just have a huge tone. Every guitar sounds better through it.
  8. Yeah, no BS, this is the greatest amp I have ever played. I've owned it for quite a while. Time to get it a new home.
  9. 1994 Matchless DC-30 2x12” Combo – Rare Samson era amp. Absolutely the greatest amp I have ever owned. Nothing sounds like it. Huge, warm, you never want to stop playing it - really. Serial number: M2062. Tranny dates 3/1/94. Works perfectly-no issues. These early ones are the pinnacle of amplifiers and have always been sort after. 100% original condition, nothing modded or changed. Original Matchless choice of mismatched Celestion speakers. It has four NOS RFT EL84 and one RFT EF86 preamp tubes. Built like a brick house. Excellent condition. Has been played, but not abused (these need to be played) Some marks from normal use, but overall looks pretty nice. Cool Burgundy and Gray 2-tone color scheme. Comes with a heavy-duty padded cover too. If you know the history, the Samson era amps are the ones to own and they have only gone up in price. $3,500. shipped, split PayPal or PPGift if you know me here. (Shipping is expensive, there are pretty heavy). I have it listed higher, but rather sell it to someone here. Please message me with any questions - Thx Ernie
  10. I have Quilter Micro Pro Mark II head. Gotta' say, I love it. I've tried many different speaker cabs, but you have to mate it with the recommended Celestion BN12-300s speaker. (It's a bass speaker, but more a full-range speaker) Really lets the amp sound correct. The cleans are nice and fat, the OD is very flexible with the great tone shaping can cover Fenders to Marshall. When my drummer says the amp sounds great, I know, I did good. haha!
  11. I have one of the JHS Modded Ernie Ball Volumes. The JHS Mod is a must have. Much less noise and cleaner signal.
