Low Wattage Combo Roundup

Guitar Player Magazine has a new collection of reviews on high end point to point hand wired low wattage combo amps. Nary a PCB to be seen anywhere:

DST Engineering U84-TNT
Cornford Harlequin
Carr Mercury
Mojave Coyote
Dr. Z Mini-Z

As great as I suspect these amps are (I've only played the Mini-Z and a different Carr model) I was dissappointed to see a lack of real criticism. Somehow I'm reminded of food critic Homer Simpson fattening Springfield. Maybe these magazines might like to set the bar a little higher.

In case you had any doubts about the high end guitar market getting out of control, MSN money can tell you how to invest in a vintage axe.
