I first heard Metz amps at a live show. I was immediately impressed with the tone and singing sustain. I knew I needed to have one. John built a version of his Goldi-Rocks amp, with a few special requests from me. The amp has a beautiful, organic, touch-sensitive quality. It’s both very revealing and sweet sounding. Beautiful cleans and aggressive overdrive with enough EQ options to tweak for days. John is quite a talented designer/builder, player and all around solid guy.
