Well I have been posting through the whole build process, and now I can finally post my Suckerpunch 15 at its final destination!


I have not had much time with it as I just got it this afternoon and work and family take priority, but as soon as I get some good time on it and figure how I can record some clips and post them I will!! Man pictures do not do this thing justice, HOLY CRAP its SEXXXXXXXXXY as HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much bigger than I pictured it, and this being my first tube amp, I had no idea what to expect. Man I had no idea what I have been missing!!!!! The sound is just so pure, is the only real way I know how to describe it! My RG w/ JB/Jazz combo has its own sound and my ESP w/ 81/60 combo has another sound all together. So know time to expieriment. And tips or advice you guys could give me with my pedals listed as a good starting point would be much appreciated. Craig I truly want to thank you for this AWESOME amp, and all the hard work you put into it, your Customer Service is better than any I have ever dealt with!

What features does that thing have? I can see the tone controls and volume. What do the two knobs on top of each other do, gain stages perhaps? Footswitchable maybe?
Does anyone know the song that goes: ba ba bah, ba ba buh, bu ba bum, ba ba bah, ba bu buh, bu bu bum, bu ba bu bu bum baam?

I'm as excited as you are to finally see this. And it took such a short time to build, really, when you think about it. The process was really fun to watch. I hope it serves you well!

I saw the more technical explanation, but this one is just more appealing for some reason.

But the question still remains, can the preamp gain stages be controlled with a footswitch?

Oh, yeah, almost forgot, happy NAD!

Congrats, I hope it sounds as good as it looks, because that looks SEXY! I hate snakeskin tolext but it actually looks nice on that. Also the 'CEC' or whatever looks cool.

Took him long enough.

Well first he had to get two snakes to mate. every try that one quailduckboi?

Then plant some trees to get the wood for the enclosure... you see.


It was fun to watch the build process, that's something that most mfgs would NEVER do. Kudos to Craig for that alone, aside all the great workmanship and snake charming abilities.


and i bet those guitars sound worlds apart.
great amps do that.

That thing looks awesome, bet it sounds it too.

I just realized that your location is stationed in Germany. I'm assuming you're Army (from your name). I'm going Air Force and really want to be stationed in Ramstein. How is it over there? Everything dreams are made of?

It was my pleasure. This amp was a great build and I really enjoyed it--especially the mains switching and external output which were firsts for the Suckerpunch15 circuit.

Thanks for the kind words, I can't wait to hear your impressions when you're able to spend some more time with it!

HNAD! The amp looks more than stellar, and I'm sure you enjoy it with those guitars.
