THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
  • WE HAVE MOVED THE LES PAUL FORUM TO A NEW HOSTING PROVIDER! Let us know how things are going! Many thanks, Mike Slubowski, Admin

Did Obeid Kahn design this one? I know he did quite a bit of work on the "new" Magnatone line and has worked with Billy before. He's very, very good!
No idea. Magnatone only say Obeid Khan runs engineering and Dave Ryan and Diane Villani are their master builders.


Khan runs his own firm, and you can contact him there: https://khanaudio.com/

Thanks...it's not that important to me to bother Obeid, lol. I'm not buying one. But I know he loves Marshalls, knows them very well. I'd be surprised if he wasn't involved in this design.

I've not heard a bad Magnatone since the brand was revived. Truly great modern amps with a "vintage sound".

I have played a bunch of them and love them.

If I could get my wife to move them for me I would buy one.

Suckers are SO heavy!
