So, I just finished the first V2 Cherry Bomb for a customer. I've made some very minor changes that considerably amp up the gain of the ROD channel of the amp and add a bit of gain to the PLEX as well. The amp can still be dialed in exactly like the V1 Cherry Bomb by lowering the gain on either channel, but now can get absolutely vicious on the ROD channel (Bottle Rocket level gain) if you so desire. If you liked the V1 Cherry Bomb, it's all in V2, but now, you can get much more tight gain if you'd like...

This mod can be done to any V1 Cherry Bomb in just 10 minutes and you basically have the gain of the Bottle Rocket on tap.

Here are some pics. This guy chose the snakeskin tolex headcase:

That is awesome Steve!

Does the mod change the voicing at all?

If it just adds gain, I, personally, don’t need it. You know what I get out of my Cherry Bomb and I only run the gain on the Rod channel around 2 o’clock.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again....BEST Marshallish amp I have ever played. :rawk:

Absolutely fantastic.

The mod adds considerable gain to the ROD channel and also provides additional treble range. It gets tighter response across the frequency range of the amp as well. As I said, all the V1 sounds are in there, you just get the more aggressive sound of the Bottle Rocket as well in a 100 watt package. Due to the dual gains and 3-way bright switches on the Bottle Rocket, it's single channel is still the most versatile of any single channel I've designed yet. Of course, the Cherry Bomb has two separate preamp channels and is very versatile as well...

I'm going to reduce the price of the Cherry Bomb from 3299 to 2900 and I am willing to provide an additional discount for long standing GABers...
