I see it was announced, but hasn't Nik already been offering this amp for quite a while. Just a mod to the plexi right?

What does AFD mean?  Per description it is modeled after a famous album tone?
I have to say I am stumped....

Hi

It should be noted that:

"Set to 1K5", for eg, for the trimmer pots, that 1K5 value is POT only. It's wired as a var resistor, in series to the fixed 1K to ground

So 1K5 + 1 = 2K5 total.

if any questions, just email me direct. No use to go wondering at another forum for a week. My answer will come to you, via email, within hours Smiley

Thanks!

Hey Todd, just go for it. I did and I am not sorry. It sounds awesome. I had some trouble with the balance between the clean and the AFD channel but I got it sorted with a couple of resistors and some help from Nik. Oh, and it is a bit more than just a mod to the plexi, Major mod maybe a better discription...

Regards
Peter

Believe me I am very tempted but I already have a 2550 that gets me pretty much all the high gain marshall tone I want at the moment. I have been considering a JTM45 and a couple other classics as well that are more geared towards classic rock/blues. Either way its been a few months since i have fed my amp building addiction so something will be on my bench shortly.

OK so a great friend of mine has a Voodoo V-Plex amp with all the good gear in it. Made in the USA etc etc. Well we did an A/B test tonight against my newly built AFD#35 and we both new what amp was the better one. It was not even a close race but very noticeable that the Ceriatone AFD was the clear winner. Go Nik.
