    Is this Mike's gig now? He comes in as a consultant to other companies who can crank out his amps at volume? I dig it, cause there's no way I would ever be able to afford a genuine Fortin

    Hmm interesting... so is this new? I'm seeing vids / listing for an amp that looks identical with the same name but with a black instead of white nameplate :shrug:

    This is another one from NAMM today

    I'm going to be honest... that sounds a lot meaner than your usual Fortin amp. I love it.

    Their website shows a Custom Super-Hi 50 that mentions Mike... but it is definitely not the same badging on the head. Color me confused.

    Given he has been selling pedals by the truckload and is opening preorders for Meshuggah heads under the Fortin brand I would say you are correct.

    My wallet will hate me. Too many awesome new 50 watts. EVH El34 50, Satan 50, Marshall Origin 50...but this one takes the cake.

    Not really a fan of Hiwatt stuff, but the amp in the OP sounds fucking insane.
