I have never been so moved by an amplifier! John Metz is doing something really spectacular. Today in a world filled with clones of all the amps that have been around forever, it’s hard to get something that’s unique without being weird or unusable. To me, Metz amps are inspired by the wonderful classic tones we all know and love with true improvements and a unique twist. John is not making changes just to be unique, but to constantly make real musical improvements. He has cultivated something that is improved and original on tones that are very familiar!
Metz amplification is doing exactly what the amp wizards of the 50s and 60s we’re doing, using curiosity to test and create a product that is purely musical! No gimmicks. As a result, John has created hands down the best sounding, and most inspiring (and best looking) guitar amps I’ve ever played.
