trainwreck clone

Picked up a “Frankenstein” Amp today – based on a Trainwreck/Komet circuit by Ken Fischer. 40 watts, one channel, 2×12″ combo, Gain/Treble/Middle/Bass/Volume with Eminence Speakers.

Super responsive to picking. like immediate, functions very quietly with zero hum, love the tones I can get just messing with the minimalist controls – particularly the Gain/Volume, and, it is loud!

Drove out to take a look at this Trainwreck Clone and they also had a Fender 100 Watt Red Knob “Evil Twin”, way loud and it had some “cool” to it but it was plagued with noise/hum and the switching was at best “semi-functional”. I was able to snag the Clone for $350 so it was a “no brainer”.

Thanks! Ran across one that peaked my interest in a trade offer a while back. That one was made from a converted old Fender 2×12 Amp but it made some noise, etc. when it wasn’t being played and only had one 12″ hooked up in it. Plus the guy wanted $800.00.

In keeping with Ken Fischer’s naming tradition of giving his amps feminine names; I’ve dubbed it “Anna Nicole”. the biggest TRAINWRECK I could think of.
