From Brandon
"Loving my new Nace 1x12 small combo with the Eminence "Swamp Thang" speaker. It is a very easy to grab and go with this little 28 lbs. tone monster. It is surprising loud and has nice headroom for a 7-14 watt single ended amp. In one application in particular, I am using it with a 7 pc jazz/funk band and it cuts through nicely. I love how it gets to the sweet spot at just the right volume for nice, singing lead tone but also cleans up and still sparkles when backing off the guitar volume. What sets the Nace apart to me, is the uncolored, transparent tone of this amp. I can really hear the individual nuances of each of my guitars. This "straight wire with gain" feel to the NACE M3-7R is very addictive--like the strings are connected directly to the speaker. "

Hi Art. Love the amp in every regard and so do a couple of my friends. I use it primarily with a Svetlana EL34 and it rocks and the clean sound is stunning.

I have a buddy who wants to buy one but if you still have one he would like to go the less expensive route (who knows?) and buy an M2-7R - he understands the difference but is watching his pennies. Same USPS shipping deal.  

Your amp is pretty well all I use now. Funny how that happened.  

In shines in every regard. And a KT77 which is an EL34 substitute works just fine - nothing blew up or started smoking.

Please let me know and I will attempt to connect the two of you.  

Thanks Art and best regards. I hope you are well and getting some business.

From John

Let me start by saying that the only negative I've experienced with the amp thus far is the fact that I'm not a big fan of having to reach around to hit the power switch on the back. A very, very minor thing. And something where since the front of the amp is so aesthetically pleasing, perhaps the switch would've impacted that clean look of the layout. Other then that I've been extremely pleased with the amp's operation. Every time I turn it on and play, I smile because of just how good it sounds. I've been slowing diving into the world of boutique low watt lunchbox style amp head recently after trying out a bunch of the mass produced ones (epiphone valve jr., orange tiny terror, vox ac4tv, etc.) , and having largely mixed feelings about them. What led me to your amp was the lack of great sounding clean options in the category. I found a lot of stuff that sounded great when cranked and overdriven, but they seemed to lose a lot of tone when turned down some and played clean or close to clean. So I was looking for something to fill that void of clean to low gain, and after listening to many demos of the low watt amps contained on this great list of low watt amps:

I've played the amp with different guitars, and I must say, I am very impressed.  It's very responsive to my attack and sounds great with different styles.  I'm playing it on a gig on Friday, and I'm sure players will enjoy the tone.  I'll try to see if I can get a video and send it your way.  The guitar players that I've let play through it are very impressed too!  It's light and is everything that I need.  It also looks cool.  Thanks for being very responsive and easy to work with.  

Not too much more that I can ask that I would like.  I usually leave adding effects such as reverb and delay up to the soundman to add from the board.  I might have to get a combo Customer Feedback - Thanks to all for your support!

Not too much more that I can ask that I would like. I usually leave adding effects such as reverb and delay up to the soundman to add from the board. I might have to get a someday just to have a little reverb if needed.  Though, I usually do not play with any and like to plug straight into the amp.  It's great that I can play everything from Joe Pass styles to Jimi Hendrix and the tone is nailed.  When I plugged in a Klon Centaur overdrive, the richness and evenness of the tone from the amp was just astounding!  Zero compression and just a nice breakup of the tubes.  Maybe someday we can add tweed to the outside of the amp just for kicks!  Not sure how that would affect the tone.  You are definitely getting a lot of efficiency out of the tubes and really know what you're doing.  Also, there is hardly any noise coming from the amp.  However, when I plugged the amp in the first time, the volume knob had a little noise/crackling coming from it when I was adjusting it, but I just rotated the knob and the crackling appears to have gone.  At first, there was a little humming coming from the head, but the more that I play it, the more it seems to disappear.  I'll keep you posted if it continues.  It probably just needs someone to play it :) Other than that, thank you and I'll be an ambassador for your line of amps

I've had the amp for about two months now and I'm really lucky to have this baby.  I havefound that if I set the volume around 3:00 I can go from purely clean tones to chunky overdrive with just the twist of my guitar's volume pot.  I have removed my overdrive pedal from the chain and now it's just fingers, guitar, analog delay, and the
M2-7R.  I leave the reverb at 0 and both tones at 12:00.

It helps to have a quality instrument to play through your amp, still I am blown away on at least a weekly basis by the tones I hear in my own music room.  It amazes me that more people don't know about your product and its pocket-friendly price point.

I'm not set up to do any videos these days, but if things change and I get some recording hardware I may try my hand at demo-ing this combo.  In the mean time, it is a pleasure to play music through your equipment.  Thank you for the expertise you have exhibited in building these combo amps.  It brings me joy.

From Paul

The M2-7R arrived this afternoon and I must say I stole this @ $699.  I almost feel guilty playing through this thing.  It blows my old Blues Jr away.  

You are an electronic maestro - thanks for the tone magic.  It's like a 50 year old Princeton with a nasty crunch at high volume.  And quiet, all in all an amazing piece of equipment. 

I have no excuse for my sound now, just play.

From Walter
Mr. Nace, one of your M2-7R amp heads arrived at my place today from Willcutt Guitars. I wanted you to know that I'm more than pleased with it and will recommend it to anyone who will listen. You've made an old guitar player in eastern Canada very happy.  When you have a little spare time perhaps you could create a bass guitar amp. Thanks again.
