RE: [Harp-L] Pierre Lacocque review
I heard Pierre in Cortland, NY at Lucky's a few weeks ago. I have to confess, I was one of those drooling over the tone. Pierre is a great player, but the Cruncher really complimented his playing that night. It really sounded excellent!

I think having a pro give a review gives it a bit more reality. Here is
Pierre's of Mississippi Heat on the Cruncher. Guys talk of having such loud amps,
my goal was to keep the blues Right, so the louder your amp is on stage the
louder your band will be and dynamics go out the window. Here is Pierre.
I have been playing with the CRUNCHER for a couple of months now. I took it
on the road to places like Buffalo, NY; Mishawaka, IN; and Lawrenceville,
PA; as well as within the Chicago area where my band hails from. Everywhere I
perform, I meet harp players drooling about the tone I get out of that
wonderful amplifier. Even my band mates have commented on how awesome the CRUNCHER
sounds. While I have always enjoyed playing through my Fender Bassman and
Fender Super-Reverb amplifiers in the past, I must say that the CRUNCHER brings
on an even sweeter dimension.
You get an amp that sounds like it came out from the 1950ïsï.warm and fat
tone even at the lowest of volumes. I get virtually NO feedback to speak of.
Even when adding reverb and delay. This amp has a unique LINE-OUT option which
can be connected directly to a PA system. This amplification process remains
faithful to the actual speakers output! I have tried Line-Outs from other
amps before ï especially the Fender Super Champ (from the early 1980ïs) ï and
I repeatedly noticed that the harp tone and overall tube sounds were never
faithfully duplicated. Not true with the CRUNCHER. It is simply an amazing
I have found THE ultimate and most versatile amplifier. Never thought I
would ever find one that could recreate Little Walter sounds. Yet here it is. I
recommend it without reservation. ""
