Making its debut this weekend at the Dead Gear Expo in Teaneck, NJ at Mexicali Live is the all new Hard Truckers / Louis Electric "Captain Trips" amp.

120 watts of the cleanest power this side of a MacIntosh power amp. Powered by (4) Four KT-88 power tubes married with (3) three Ax7 and (2) At7 pre amp tubes this amp simply rocks like the Fat Man himself. Use a McIntosh 2300 like Jerry did, no problem, with the simple flip of a switch the power section on "Captain Trips" can be disconnected and you can use your McIntosh or similar power amp to power your rig.

Only the best, just what you expect from Louis Electric and the Hard Truckers. For more information check us out at or email To be the first to demo this incredible amp come join us this Saturday and Sunday (8/20 and 8/21) at the Dead Gear Expo at Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ. Incredible gear, great music, super door prizes and a trippy good time for all.
