Goodsell Super 17 Mk2:
From the dusty, oily laboratory of world-renowned Hammond organ guy Richard Goodsell comes a new family of EL84-based 17 watt guitar amplifiers with astonishing tone and playability. With transformers and topologies inspired by vintage Hammond designs from the 50s and 60s, and with a respectful nod to our British forebears, Chicago meets Liverpool and takes a gig in Nashville.
Like it's glorious godfather, the Hammond B3, the Goodsell Super 17 amplifiers enjoy a tone and a harmonic richness found only in old-school assembly techniques and vintage iron. Each point-to-point hand-wired amp benefits from a total lack of innovation; no pretense, no extra useless knobs to compensate for one-dimensional tone - just a magical simplicity of execution using only 3 knobs to achieve an amazingly diverse palette of musically useful sounds.

HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 6/6/2006:
"This amp is absolutly perfec! Richard Goodsell takes a very old school approach to his amps featuring only three knobs: gain, tone, and volume, but that is truly all you need to get mind blowing tone from these things... Sound is what it's all about, and that where this amp has em all beat. It has some of the sweetest tones you could ever imagine. It breaks up so nicely like a vintage amp, yet also has some of the most shimmery clean sounds I've ever heard if you back off the gain a bit. Everyone who has heard this amp so far has been amazed by it. I was at a festival the other day and I recieved more comments and questions about that amp than I have ever recieved from any other single piece of equipment, it was quite a hit... If this amp were lost or stolen I would be finding just how quickly I could get my hands on my next one. I've even thought about buying another one as a backup just in case. I would recommend this amp to anyone who cares about great tone. Not only that but as prices stand right now, compared to a Bad Cat or a Matchless these amps are very affordable. I just can't day enough good about these amps or Richard Goodsell they are both world class acts."

"Mine is a releatively new Super 17 1X12 combo. One input. Volume, Tone, and Gain knob. It's all you need!! I'm selling all my other amps! It's the truth. This amp works great with every guitar I have and is an inspiration to play. From clean to crunch, it's magic! ...I've been playing 20 years. Been through tons of gear....this amp is magical. It really is. It's inspiring to play and it's what I've always wanted and heard in my head, but hadn't nailed until now!!"

"I have been playing professionally for over 10 years and have finally found THE amp I have always hoped existed. There is no mountain high enough or ocean deep enough to keep me from this amp. She is the unicorn!"
