What sets Sarno Music Solutions apart from other builders?
Philosophy - trying to find special uses and needs that haven't been well addressed by other makers, trying not to be redundant in a saturated market. USA build - chassis and boards all domestically made.
Process - all entirely hand assembled/built by me. Artwork by my wife. We're very obsessed with component selection, carbon comp where appropriate, more exotic film/foil cap's where called for, non-magnetic metal film resistors where needed, etc.
Clientele is fairly small yet very high end professionals.

I wasn't trying to rip on ya but instead open up your eyes to new possibilities. You are the unfortunate recipient of my frustration over the "real Jerry rig" chats of dudes using JBLS with 100W going to each. It's just very unrealistic and quite frankly doesn't work for many. I believe it was Mr. Kimock who plugged into JG's rig and couldn't get it to sound good at all.
Also, Jerry evolved based on his needs and size of venue. So if you want to replicate the exact gear you also need to replicate:
1 - the volume
2 - the amount of air the speakers pushed out into
All very important variables.
Regarding Jerryesque tone I've heard Waldo's rig nail it with 1 JBL and what, 22 watts? Other dudes nail it well with TRRIs I've even heard great tone from Blues Jr guys.

Maybe we'll get the clipper going in 2013.

I've been playing at home with a Frenzel pre (with Brad's thumbs up) into a Groove Tubes STPG with a preamp "in" mod. Been going into a Weber Cali 12" into a closed back ported Bag End. I think the Bag End cab makes it too bassy(I just crank the bass down all the way), but I have a K110 and D123 on the way to try out in open back cabs. I also pulled the trigger on a Mac 250, but it might need some work. Thanks to everyone on this site for their amazing contributions to a life long endeavor! I'll share more info and results as it accumulates. Quarterpounder
