    I traded a 90's Gibson Les Paul Special for a Kendrick 50 watt Beaumont Gusher head about 25+ years ago.

    I would have traded 2 LP Specials for the Kendrick.

    When I tried the amp, I was in love and held my playing back because the original owner might realise the Kendrick's greatness and change his mind.

    It has an aged lacquer tweed covering and a trapazoidal shape.

    I spoke to Gerald about the amp and heard his conceit and talking down to me........I think he thinks he can walk on water.

    IMO, Gerald's amps vary from one toanother.

    Some are meh and a very few are magic.

    IMO, Gerald thinks all of his amps are magic and untouchable.

    Yeah, right.

    I've sought out other Kendrick amps and, realised (IMO), I got lucky.

    Don't have the Epi or the Mesa Cab anymore (I still have those ratty shoes:rolleyes:).

    I picked up an mesa 22 caliber years ago the owner replaced the speaker with a Kendrick Blackframe 12. It's an alnico mag but the cone is probably different than current production. It has this odd trumpet shape bell shape. I didn't care for it with that amp so I loaded it with a warehouse speaker.

    Back in '93-'94 I had the Kendrick Amps cassette tape demo, might still have it. I played that thing to death in my old Ford Escort!

    After seeing this, I don't know if my amp is really a good day from Weber or if the video is a joke

    That video was a gag.

    I've watched all his videos. A little full of himself, but still has a decent sense of humor.
