Are these one of the uber-boutique amps? What are they made of? Are they just slightly cheaper than a new maserati?

WOW!!!! Where can I get my hands on one of these mean machines?

Those may look good, but when played in public, they have proven to be inferior amplifiers. Companies like Dumble, Alessandro, and Diezel mean well, but they haven't a clue to what it takes to build an amplifier who's inherent design is to rock hard. The Kramer K15R starts at $74.99 (available at www.musicyo.com) and can accomplish things even the most expensive Dumble, Alessandro, and Diezel amps can only dream of. Here is an explanation of the priceless features of the Kramer K15R:
Technical Specifications: Controls: 1/4" Inputs (Hi and Low)
Overdrive Channel with Drive and Level Controls
Clean Channel with Level Controls
3-Band EQ (High, Mid, Low)
Reverb Level Control
FX Loop Send/Return (TRS cable NOT included)
Power Rating: 15 Watts RMS
Speaker: 8" Full-Range
Cabinet: Closed-Back, Black Vinyl Covered with Durable Plastic Corners
Voltage: Works with US 110-120 Volts
Plug: US wall plug-end
Those other amps try to do everything, and that's impossible! They try to do both rock AND country! The Kramer K15R does one thing and does it well: ROCKS HARD! Stop using amps that mean well and start using amps that ROCK HARD!!!

The Komet was designed by Ken Fischer of Trainwreck fame (the only other modern amp in the price range of Dumbles).
Btw, Two Rock makes the closest thing to a Dumble clone. They start at around $3k, for the "affordable" line and go up very quickly.

True, but I don't think clean tone was one of their design requirements. My Line 6 does great, LOUD, spanky clean, but it can't sound like a Belov being pushed to the brink.

I tried the Belov amps at the NAMM show last year. I absolutely hated them. They were incapable of producing a single usable clean tone at a volume level loud enough to be functional.
