The word's a tricky one 'cause you expect it to be spelled like "comrade" in some way, but thanks to the French, it's:... but I wanted to say I think this is a good example of why this forum is still great and the comradety that there is here (if that's even a word).
They are awesome amps.They’re up to $2500 or thereof now especially the older pre-2004 models. Mine was 2700 after tax and shipping - absolutely zero negation room. And I don’t say that lightly - that’s the most I have ever spent on an amplifier and I’m not comfortable spending any more hence why I backed out of Fatbagg’s 100B ad - obviously for the better.
I feel for the OP - 101B’s of vintage era are in high demand and rare as hens teeth at anything reasonable. I’m still in the honeymoon stage, but it’s by far the most responsive/articulate/musical amp I have.
Yet there are some who will defend Cameron to the end probably cause they never got ripped off by him. Reminds me of some other people who defended someone until the end and did some really stupid shit until he didn't issue any of them a pardon and now they finally realize they got duped... But that's an entirely different matter I guess???
Still waiting on the remaining amount.So OP are you squared up now with Fatbagg, or is there still some cash outstanding?
He used to post some excellent demos here and on TGP and also on the Soldano Facebook Users Group.
A real shame things went the way they did!
My personal experience with Mark was never an issue. I got my CCV back in March 2010 (ordered it in December 2009) and my Aldrich mod back in 2011. This was before the new Cameron amps venture and before the multiple people paying, but not receiving amps. The only person that I feel badly for is Bruno (turtlefingers)... he was the only person I told in 2010 that I paid Mark and 3 months later got my CCV (with the help of JCJ by the way). That said, I must have told a dozen people later on to not send any money until amps start showing up to buyers ( i know ampliFIRE was one of them). Around 2012ish I sent him a reissue JCM800 to make into an Ocean Mod which was partially to help him out to make some money. He sent me the plug in device around this time as well. It took more than a year to get back and I sold the amp right after and broke out completely even. At this time there was a new "Cameron Amps' which took on Marks debit to fully make any owed amps fulfilled. Any other Cameron amps I owned were bought used.Yet there are some who will defend Cameron to the end probably cause they never got ripped off by him. Reminds me of some other people who defended someone until the end and did some really stupid shit until he didn't issue any of them a pardon and now they finally realize they got duped... But that's an entirely different matter I guess???
