Here is a video clip of my new amp, the hand-wired 18 watt tube amp called Heatseeker, by Mack Amps.
This is the first I played the amp, and I'm only using my Fender Strat, Lava guitar cable, the Heatseeker and my Avatar 2 x 12 cabinet with Eminence Wizard speakers. No pedals used - I wanted to demonstrate what the amp sounds like with a single coil guitar with no effects added.
I am very happy with the tones this amp produces. It doesn't have a lot of gain, but that is perfect for me. It gives me that sweet tube saturated, dynamic tone, which I then can tailor to taste by using pedals. Rolling off the volume knob a bit works well for cleaning up the slightly dirty tone, and digging in hard on the strings gives me more volume and distortion. Perfect!
If you are in search for a quality tube amp, check out the Heatseeker by Mack Amps - it is fairly inexpensive compared to many boutique amps, but it delivers in tone.
