Ruby Custom

Just got my Ruby from Cliff a couple of days ago and did a gig the same night. Wow. Wow. Wow. I had tried Cliff’s amps at his place and took five guitars (equipped with single coils, humbuckers, P90s and combinations) I was knocked out as each guitar sounded great. So, putting my money where my mouth is, I ordered the Ruby. Using it on the gig (with speakers I’ve been using for more than 20 years) was a total revelation. The TONE, the TONE. Did I mention the TONE? But the volume was perfect, playing with a drummer I was heard loud and clear (no mics) and was on about half vol. But did I mention the TONE. I was blown away. I’m still re-living the sound in my head. I’ve been tinkering with amps for ages trying to get THE sound. All that is now over, I’ve found it. Only it’s better than I thought possible.
