      Hi Dan and Peter and welcome to the SDUGF.

      I have a Marshall JCM 900 MkIII head (2100 model) and it has 2 master volumes which are footswitchable. One for rhythm, one for lead. It's a no frills single channel amp otherwise that I just love.

      My question: Is this something that you have thought of incorporating in to your amps? I think it is a great feature and am quite surprised that it's not seen more often.

        Oh yeah, one more before the time is up.

        Can you talk about your new Pro Series, and how you were able to bring these to market at a lower price? Basically, what would the differences be, and can you really hear the differences?

          Peter, tho I tend to listen to heavier stuff, Im a fan of your work with several of the artists you've played with. when/What can we expect from your upcoming solo project? Any interesting road stories?

          Dan,
          Ive heard the 65 Amps pack some serious tone, but havnt had the priveledge of playing one. What promted you to build your own amps, how long did it take you to develop the sound you were shooting for? And do you offer or will you offer a "lunchbox" size head with a master volume?

          Thank you
          HI Bloodrose,
          The new band definitely has a southern flare to it that came a bit by default. Mainly we want to put out owr own music and playing that we feel represents us honestly. IT'll have a lot of guitar interaction btn Audley Keith and I of course. Keith is an amazing B-bender player and a singer songwriter in his own right. We have Robert Kearns on bass (played with Audley in Cry Of Love and now with Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Fred Eltringham on drums. Also Ike Stubblefield on B-3, so the mix of styles is very wide. It'll be a lot of fun and has been exciting for all of us.

            Road stories...so many the brain gets clogged. Hung out with Kid Rock and band at the hotel bar a couple of years back during Obama's Inauguration. multiple Jack shots later, Kid has his back up singers leading a gospel sing long with everyone remaining in the bar at about 2am. Probably one of the more tamer moments on Kid Rock's list of bar experiences, but none the less was quite memorable.

                Sure Mr. Jones or is Sir. Gear? ;-)

                The Pro is made exactly like our Blue line stuff but with simpler cabinets, ceramic speakers (the alnicos are super expensive), simpler circuits but still very robust and midly different trannies. They sound fantastic and intended more for a guy who wants 1 amp for gig with a few voices. A grab and go mentality.

                Without the expensive vents and speakers, that cuts the build cost dramatically. As mentioned above in this thread, it's very costly to put the aestheic pieces on the amp and some people are opting to save the money or the just don't care about the "dressing".

                I hope that answers your question?

                Cheers!

                      Hi Erik
                      Our new Empire will incorporate multiple gain levels with ability to dial a quite aggressive sound. But all sharing same tone stack which is our preference. Less circuitry means more of true tone of what you're putting thru it.

                                Cheers guys!! Thank you for joining us! And thank you Evan and all at Seymour Duncan! I've been a fan since Seymour first came out on the market with his pickups and these guys have supported me since day one. We've all become close friends and still use their products to date.
                                Cheers yall. Be well
