I am glad to see the Blackout made the list...we went through about three runs of tweaks on a grail donor until we nailed it. The faceplate is a huge improvement over my rugged dremeled-out grail plate. Now its back on my list of absolutely gonna buy as soon as I get a chance.
It's actually redesigned and improved. Every one of the new releases are a completely fresh design from the ground up.

I think Rob captured the essence of these amps, while getting rid of some of the junky and farty aspects of their tone that has kept me away from these styles in the past. Other hits for me were the MKC+ and the J-Plex. I left him my plexi module as a donor and placed my order for a Superpro. Rob commented on how my face lit up when he dialed in the Superpro.
on vintage amps it's often the 'farty' aspect of the sound that IS the character of that amp. If you remove the character in preference of a cleaner or tighter sound, refined....then you have yourself an entirely different experience.
For me it's the grunt and dirtiness that makes a vintage amp
I'm certainly not saying these new mods are not wonderful, I'm absolutely sure that they are. I'm just talking about vintage amps..... _________________ RM22, RM4

I can't decide between JF's Super Clean, 5F6JFM: Fender 5F6 Bassman or Twintone: Fender Twin Reverb for a clean module. I like the sound of Robs creation and the fact that it will distort slightly with gain at 10. Anybody got any advice? _________________ RM50, RM100, Salvation Mods Shiver, Benzin, Loneclean, Mamba, Stock Clean Module, Jaded Faith Numbnutz, Stein+
