My introduction to Mike was getting punched in the face by the tone my signature amp. Holy crap what an amp !!!
Mike Fortin's amps have...like black Sabbath in them... and he's the father of satan. I rest my case.
If there has been a guy i can fully trust with amps and amp design, it is Mike Fortin. I've tried almost every metal amp out there and playing one designed by Mike is like coming home after years of tone searching.
