"Ruhs built these two amp heads from Ted Weber designs. The top amp is an 18-watt tube head in ""official"" 1969 purple. It has a treble, mid, bass mod and changes in the tone section to reduce noise and woofy bass. He says, ""It has a surprisingly good clean sound and the TMB channel sounds best cranked. Goes from AC/DC to some metal with a hotter pickup."" The bottom amp is a since-channel Java 40-watt head, which is supposed to be a variant on a Trainwreck Express, though he has changed the tone stack values to be closer to a JCM800. ""This one is a pretty bright amp,"" he says, ""so I have a three-way switch in the back to offer different levels of trimming a little high-end."" "
