    Default Boutique/Smaller Amp company stuff--who's got em?

    Anyone here own/play any lesser known boutique stuff? I'm talking:

    -Custom Audio/Suhr
    -Jackson Ampworks
    -Splawn
    -Diezel
    -Egnater MOD stuff
    -Cameron...etc.

    My only amp now is a 50-watt Zinky MOFO. It's a 3-channel head (small box)that has an acoustic sounding clean, a Marshall-y crunch, and the best OD I've heard so far. Not Marshall, not Mesa, but somewhere in between. You can roll off the volume knob and it will clean right up.

    It was made by Bruce Zinky, the former Fender Custom Shop guru who designed the Prosonic and Vibroking, among others. Got it for $900 on eBay back in 2006.

    Used to have a Splawn. I thought it was great for what it was--the VH sound. It WAS the 1984 tone. But it was huge and crazy loud and then GAS set in...

    It'd be cool to hear opinions on any of the above stuff or anything anyone has that is off the beaten path.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    I've got two Splawns and really wouldn't ever consider any other amp at this point of time. I've had my first one for 3 years now and it still cooks like it did back then. I've found my favorite tone is when I back off on the volume knob to about 5-6 and the amp still has some grit on it, yet the amp responds to touch so you can go from beautiful clean chords to slightly overdriven bues in a matter of moments...
