    Currently I am using SS. However, I do appreciate Tube amplifiers as well.

    I have been using tube amps and preamps for 20 years. My Toolshed Amps 300b is the best piece of gear I have owned to date. I just sold my Zesto Leto to make way for a new Toolshed Amps 101d Line Stage that is being built now. Don't think I could ever go back to SS after these. I'm done buying amps ....

    Not a fan of the engraving that is used on the Toolshed products but otherwise looks to be rather good gear.

    Thanks, I understand that it's looks are very polarizing but it is really built to a different standard. It is entirely handmade , the inside is as nice the outside from a design and layout perspective. It sounds amazing, and it is dead silent. No self noise or mechanical hum which is a true feat for a 300b amp

    Matt was great to work with, he truly delivers a bespoke product. The fit and finish is heirloom quality. Execution and detail of the highest order.
