I have owned several of Kenny Fischer's original amps. I have played many more. I have owned a lot of the JM Trainwreck modern production (such as this). I can tell you first hand that JM, as Kenny's apprentice, picks RIGHT up where Kenny left off.
20+ years ago I spent hours upon hours on the phone with Kenny. He was generous with his time and always full of teachings. I miss our calls and the CDs we would send each other with cool bands and guitar tones. At times during our calls Kenny would tell me his friend John Mark was there helping him. Through Kenny, I came to know John. I can tell you John knows tone. He knows speakers. He knows tubes. He knows amps. He is painstaking in his component to component testing. He tests a zillion tubes in each position of each amp. He is tireless in nailing the feel, tone and flexibility in each amp.
This is a 2016 JM Trainwreck Express (YES it is a Genuine Trainwreck as Kenny's family has annointed JM as the successor to the business). JM has access to Kenny's stash of everything.
This Express, named MILANA, is loaded with carefully selected NOS tubes. The amp has low hours. It comes with a D2F padded cover & the manual. The tone is freaking AWESOME. It has that characteristic fatness and sustain blooming into each note musically. It cleans up simply by turning down your guitar's volume. These are not amps to turn to 10. The sweet spot is between 10 and 2. The knobs are interactive and allow you to tweak easily. The amp LOVES different speakers. I tried it through a host of modern and vintage cones and cabs.
Compared to a Marshall...there is no comparison. A Wreck is FAT and FULL and Throaty but not overkill. It just allows you to play and it fills in behind you. There is no coaxing a note to sustain. There is no need for pedals. This amp will make you a better player because it will allow you to focus on what your hands should do next...not on coaxing out what should be (and is not) from other amps.
Grab a classic and put an end to your endless amp search.
