    What fire is that exactly? The ‘maybe actually give a product a chance before dismissing it’ fire???

    There's a market for boutique amp...Bray, Voodoo, Fargen, Metropoulos, Morris, etc....

    Wizard's price point is a little wayy too high compare to the other builders I mentioned, so I'm unsure what secret sauce he has under the hood, other than being "Angus' amp tech"......

    Never heard of Nick Zaza, Ricky Medlock, or Wizard Amps. Clearly I haven't been wasting enough time at work.

    Wizards are one of those amps that you just have to play to understand. The muscle and articulation behind them, they really are something special. They're a lot of dough, but worth every penny in my opinion.

    Just like any other brand, schematic’s are to be found so just make you own and forget the price tag.

    And before anyone jumps in about using other people’s designs, everyone is pretty much just tweaking Marshall anyway.

    All you guys do realize that most, probably all, seasoned renowned musicians get gear for free. Right?

    So he had no $5k price tag and he probably got several at the reduced price of $0. I am sure if he likes it he will play it and if not he would not and never be seen with them.

    $5k gets you the authentic "Wizard" package.

    Making a clone is what you make of it, so it is more about building it and having fun rather than buying one.

    If you go into building a clone and expect to save money you are sorely mistaken unless you use shit parts.
