Anyone ever use a Zinky amp?

I've played a Blue Velvet before, almost bought it too ... but instead opted to get another acoustic instead.

My impression was that it is a great amp that sounds fantastic at any volume. The cleans were beautiful and the gain was more than I needed. Overall, a very surprising amp ... but I'd expect no less from the guy who ran the Fender Custom Amp shop and designed the Custom Vibrolux Reverb.

In the end, I couldn't get past the velvet covering .... it seems to be more of an "at-home-in-the-studio amp" rather than something I'd gig with. I'd be scared that I'd rest a drink on top of it and ruin it with a glass "ring".

I've thought that too. They are also available in black tolex though.

I owned one for quite a while (serial #0123 in fact), then traded it to get my '64 Bandmaster. I miss the little bugger. It's a good amp that plays nicely with others (i.e. blends well with other instruments). I will eventually get the head as a replacement. I highly recommend this amp.

That isn't an exceptional deal. Mine was for sale on eBay last week (ser. #0123 :D ) for less than that and it included the cover. Actually, it still is for sale since it didn't go on eBay. $600 plus shipping.
