First Act Amps

Well I finally got into Boston and headed over to First Act on Boylston.  Its a pretty funky place.  Unfortunately I dind't have a camera.  They have a lot of guitars, some designed by them and made in China.  Cheap $150-$500.  Other made in Somerville by hand going $1000-$3000.  Very differet custom designs but all looked relatively well made.

The Amps that previously discussed on this board are there.  And they work as advertised.  Pretty amazing for under $80. 

They also have a bunch of custom special stuff kicking around.  One custom amplifier was a boutique made JTM45 clone.  All handwired.  Very well done.  They only want $800.  With Green Celestions. If your ino town you have to go there.

The play-budget is tight right now, but I sprung for a new toy.  This ipod dock that has a guitar input with volume, tone, and crunch, control.  It actually mixes the signal pretty well, and the 40W amp pumps enough bark.  Not a bad deal.  Sure beats paying Bose a few hundred dollars.  Here is a pic.
