Boutique amp Video

Here is a demo of my Mack Heatseeker 18 watt handwired tube amp. It is an affordable boutique amp, compared to many other boutique amps out there. I had the tone set at 11 o'clock on the amp, and the gain selector switch was set to Burn. Read more about this boutique amp at the Mack amps website.

I am using an SX SST62, which is a Chinese guitar, very cheap but good sounding if you put in good pickups. I installed a set of Fender Custom Shop '54 pickups in mine, and I added text to the video to indicate where I switch between pickup positions.

No effects or pedals used on this clip, just guitar - cord - amp and camera microphone.
