    Comments about DV Mark Raw Dawg EG 250W Guitar Amp Head:

    It's funny how guys buy a signature piece of gear and complain. It was made for the artist and in this case a great player. No, it won't make you sound like Eric, if you don't have the "bone tone". It's all in your hands. You have to be precise, play with authority, and be soulful. I love this amp because it sounds and feels like my guitar with no amp. It's so transparent, it let's me drive the bus. It's very powerful, light weight, and has great tone. What more do you want? The rest is up to you and your work ethic.

    Comments about DV Mark Raw Dawg EG 250W Guitar Amp Head:

    I own many tube amps- 57 Tweed Twin, Rivera Pubster 45, Vox Night Train, Headstrong Lil King S, Gibson Falcon, Gibson Skylark. But having said that, would love an alternative to lugging these things around. The last couple of years I've seen introductions of pedalboard amps and had high hopes the technology was finally here. I choose the DV Mark Raw Dawg because it was suppose to be a clean powerful almost Fender type preamp/amp with Reverb and a great platform for pedals. It is powerful, the tone control weren't bad, but... the reverb was totally un-usable. It sounded like trying to use a bad digital delay to emulate reverb. With all the current great reverb pedals out there they couldn't do better than this!! I next tried a TC Electronics Hall of Fame with it , it solved that problem but.... playing both single coils and humbuckers thru this clean you could hear how highly compressed it sounded, way too compressed for my taste. Beyond these observations the worst aspect was how this amp handled overdrive pedals. They tout a mini tube in the preamp section to provide warmth and to react to pedals. I have a lot of overdrive pedals and I tried for days to tweak one to sound decent but it does not seem possible. It sounds terrible with overdrive, sounds like a bad fuzz. I borrowed a friends Quilter Toneblock 200 and it blew this thing away!

    Comments about DV Mark Raw Dawg EG 250W Guitar Amp Head:

    It is a great sounding clean amp that takes pedals well, however, there is one caveat. With single coil pickups, the thing sounds fantastic. Hit it with humbuckers and it flubs out. I'm a tele player, and use it for a backup amp for gigs, and it works great for me - more than enough power, however, if I were to go with hotter output pickups, it would not work. Also, if you like to boost the input signal, it will flub out. So, if all you play is strats or teles (low output), it is a great sounding, powerful head at a really good price. Given that it doesn't work with buckers or a clean boost (well, it does, but it sounds horrible), I can't recommend it.
