first crack at trying to (futility embodied) canonize a few of the various ICON amps that are/were out there.
the idea is: try to put some sort of an easy to understand template over the thousands of superlative and nebulous description for these amazing amps, in a vain attempt at bootstrapping a way to pick see what sort of sounds you actually like, related to gain and tone response.
Arts & Architecture magazine- The magazine’s editor, John Entenza, providing rough guidelines:
“It is to be clearly understood that every consideration will be given to new materials and new techniques in house construction. (…) these materials will be selected on a purely merit basis by the architects themselves…
“No attempt will be made to use a material merely because it is new or tricky. On the other hand, neither will there be any hesitation in discarding old materials and techniques if their only value is that they have been generally regarded as ‘safe’.”
i’ll be in the bay area May 14&15 for the SF Amp Show so come visit if you want to demo an amp, and consult with me in person regarding a new amp build. not sure what stuff i’ll have available, but for sure some big and little wattage riff transporters. possibly some oddball parts and pieces, and maybe a couple of weird amps i have had kicking around the shop that i can hopefully finish in time. look for the hovervan at Marriott SF Airport 1770 S, Amphlett Blvd. San Mateo, 94402
Dwarvenaut 20 build slots are closed, some really cool stuff going on.. Caribous are rolling off the bench with a few new twists and turns added for new owners.
ok back to it!

so give it a whirl. once you have gone thru the questions and selections, i’ll send over either a paypal invoice or run your credit card, and you’ll be in the build queue. hopefully simple and easier for both of us.
the build slots are filling up already, i only have 4 slots left for dwarvenauts, and 5 caribou slots left.
and yes, i lost the goddamn site again. thanks PHP updates!
i’m beginning to really hate wordpress..

Have a few Caribou’s left. less than 10 ionostrofear fuzz pedals, and 1 or 2 Elder Giants available for builds.
I’m working solo from here on out, so please be patient, please bear with me. Also, I have not been having good luck with emails making it past spam catcher software, so if you’ve written in and not heard anything back, please try again.
I’ve completely pulled the plug on our facebook presence. It’s actually a huge relief. A lot less stressful.
I’m only concentrating on our Instagram and Reverb.com the most often. Ebay is also where things I make end up for sale.
Etsy is also another place we add things for sale. I update our Pinterest side very, very sporadically.
