Volt Amps

ToonToon Frets: 56
Anyone on here got an amp from Volt Amp Co.? I was looking  at their website and it looks intriguing. Not cheap but the sound clips are impressive. http://www.voltamps.co.uk/ 
I'd not heard of them before but looks like a UK Dumble clone

I am not young enough to know everything

    Myself and a friend went to Stone in Staffordshire (quite a drive from the Sussex coast) so he could buy a Fender Esprit from Mr Volt Amps in person ...and the guitar was (unsurprising) demoed through one of his Overdrive Specials. Admittedly, we were only there for an hour or so, but it looked to be very solidly built - and it sounded bloody lovely!

    IIRC, they start life as very basic Ceriatone kits and are custom built from there.  This was two or three years ago now though, so things might have changed since then...
    Not much of the gear, even less idea.

    He's mates with our singer (also from Stone) and a couple of other people I know. I played through one of his earlier non-Dumble type amps but not the newer ones. I'll see what I can find out.

    Yup. It's a cracker too.

    We also got a brief tour of his remaining Esprit collection.  o

    I still dream about the top-spec Robben Ford model he had...

    I followed your suggestion and the ceriatone is certainly the base. I wonder what the mods are. There must be something similar to the c-lator in there.

  • Oli Brown swore by them before he got an endorsement with Marshall (and to be honest, I still think he rates the Volt!)

    Loadsa clips on You Tube of Oli putting it through it's paces and if you listen to "Here I Am" (album) then most of that was recorded with the Volt I think.
