When it comes to hardcore authenticity in vintage gear replicas, no one tops Kyle Chase, an ultra-obsessive tone freak who builds replica amps and effects using only NOS and custom-made parts. Yes, NOS is Chase’s MO. In fact, he’s so intent on building authentic, museum-quality replicas that he spends exorbitant amounts of time sourcing parts that are seemingly mundane from around the globe! For the most part, Chase’s outfit is a one-man operation. His shop is located on his family’s property, 13 acres of isolated forest on the highest part of a mountain near Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The advantage of this remote locale is that Chase can crank his creations to Madison Square Garden levels without getting visits from the cops! Popular Chase Tone offerings include the Fuzz Fella and the Secret Preamp.
