Entry 1: (linqua2112)
Hey tone king, i dont have a sob story, glamour story or anything like that. like you said, im gonna keep it real. im 19 years old, my name is Luke. i have a job in a small boring town. before money was scarce, my dad took me and we bought a marshall AVT150C. its terrible ive been stuck with this gimmick amp for years, and scarcely play it, no money to get a new one. my friends and i obsess over tubes daily, its really funny. id absolutely love this amp for the pure passion of playing. tubes!!

Entry 2: (akaboo69)

Hey TTK I WOULD Like to have the head because my main head is a getto riged stereo used as a head. So bassically I dont have guitar amp I have a 15 watt practice Marshall and an insignia stereo amplifier but its not meant to be used as an amp head I use because im broke and the economy is horrible. what my video called poor mans guitar rig and you will see my gear, so thats my story man tone wise I would love to have that british kind of roar El 84s rule man

Entry 3: (guitardbucket)
Hey ToneKing, welcome home :). I’d like the amp because I’ve actually never owned a true tube amp before, and also, I really respect what Soldano is doing by trying to offer a quality amp at a decent price, and I like to support things like that. I’d use the amp for recording, for YouTube demos, and for the various musical things I do for various podcasts. Were I to get the amp, I would be more than happy to spread the word of where I was getting my new tone, too.

Entry 4: (dbenc)
I would like it because I’m loyal watcher. I interact and try to leave helpful comments. I’m also having my first child in May and by the laws of my wife I cannot think let alone buy anything regarding guitars or amps. Plus I could be my sons first amp! And I might name him Tone King. I would be great full. And I also showed you the correct way to leave one of those bad boy right there. I keep leaving comments telling you to put the pinky in or its sign language for I love you!!!

Entry 5: (baronofbefoulment)
Hi. if you don’t remember I’m the guy who guessed the BC Rich Bich Perfect 10. Well, I’ve been playing for a few years But last year I ran into some financial trouble (still trying to catch up) and had to sell all of my gear. Now that tax season is coming around i was looking into buying some new gear. I could benefit from this amp by not having to buy one along with all the other stuff I have to replace.

Entry 6: (aw350meman69)
Hey ttk , it would be great to win this amp, my school hasn’t had a band in 8 years, me and a few students frome my grade 11 class formed a school band, and there is a battle of the bands coming up called schoolstock and if i had this amp i think we could REALLY get a great rock sound and maybe even win, and post a video response of it.

Entry 7: (satch7699)
Hey tone King. I have been playing for 10 years now. I play classic rock and same Satriani tunes. A good amp has never been in my fortune. For the past 10 years i have only been able to gain access to a Peavey 158 Rage. If you watch my youtube videos you can see that every video is done direct in from my digitech RP200a. I play more through my computer speakers than through my real amp. This amp would move me up from the bedroom jammer to being able to jam with a drummer. Thanks TK! \\m//

Entry 8: (themodernguitarist)
I don’t want this amp. I just wanted to say I like the way you picked to give away gear. Its fair, balanced, and won’t be pointed towards a certain audience. Just pointed towards everyone.

…BUT, if you give away a Bugera 6262 or a 333XL, I shall be there!

Entry 9: (nght5tlkr)
Honestly, the amp isn’t a complete necessity for me, but I’d definitely love to have it. Having to fund myself through college is tough, so it’s not very often I come across gear I can buy–hence why I know about a lot of deals that I try to share with everyone. Interestingly enough, I’m studying music in school so it’d most likely see use there in my performances. After college, my plan is to start my own audio electronics company while continually progressing on my musicianship. Hopefully,

Entry 10: (ericakima)
For the past couple of months, my boyfriend’s obsession with guitars, amps and pickups(?) has been maliciously affecting our relationship. His constant needs/wants for new gears have emptied out his wallet and mine. I once asked my boyfriend if he liked me or his guitars better and his response was, “you with a guitar!” By winning this amp, I could probably grab his attention for longer than usual. \m/

    I’m still bummed that the winner of the amp was some kid who doesn’t like like the amp that his daddy bought for him. Buy a freaking pedal or something. A lot of people live in small boring towns. And Most of us have to work shitty menial jobs with bosses we hate and have to deal with assholes on a daily basis just to keep a roof over our head. That being said. Congrats.

  2. Baronofbefoulment says:

    I agree as well. Just because it has tubes doesn’t mean it’s better. And just because it’s solid state doesn’t mean it’s crap. Look at the Randall Warhead. It was solid state, but it pretty much made Pantera’s sound. And Dimebag was still using them up until right before he died. Even before he was endorsed by Krank.

  3. ModernGuitarist says:

    I’m gonna agree with Tony there, and I gotta admit, I wouldn’t wanna spend money on extra tubes when they go dead. But anyways, I’m glad you won. You deserve it… I should know, I have the same reasons as you for why I can’t get an amp…. Except I have no job and no money period. =(

    Heres to hoping the Bugera 1990 contest goes good (and I win it! Which I doubt =( )

  4. tony93666 says:

    @Linqua – just because it has tubes doesn’t automatically mean it’s great* – and just because it doesn’t have tubes doesn’t automatically mean it’s crap. You will learn this one day(I hope).

    *in this case, IS a good amp

  5. jonsim says:

    you guys give the girl a break..
    she prob just wants to be sweet to her boyfriend but doesn’t have the money to get him what something he really wants. sure she’s not a pro guitar tech but that doesn’t mean she didn’t deserve a chance to make use of this amp and make someone else really happy. my vote went to you ericakima. you deserved it the most

  6. Linqua says:

    thanks ttk and thanks to everyone who voted for me! good luck to everyone else in future ttk giveaways as well! i will definitely enjoy my tubes! haha

  7. juan jose says:

    congrats dude play the shit out of it and have lots of fun with it enjoy your tubes :p

  8. MattyOD says:

    Hey Kevin(Awesomeman69), didn’t you get a brand new 500 dollar vox ad 50 amp for Christmas.

  9. Baronofbefoulment says:

    Congrats Linqua. I’m bummed out that I didn’t win, but at least someone that deserved it in my opinion was declared the winner. Better luck next time I guess.

  10. CharlesBenson says:

    I am straight forward shooter this contest has tunred epic fail it should not be about popularity

  11. CharlesBenson says:


  12. CharlesBenson says:

    hey linqua2112 if you win the jet city send me your avt 50 this is my other name im akaboo69 but i dont have an amp you should be thank ful for what you have man so if we can make a deal send me your avt 50 i will gladly take it from you

  13. Baronofbefoulment says:

    It kind of sucks this turned into a popularity contest. I assumed when I entered that The Tone King was going to choose the winner, not choose some people (whom only about half of them truly deserve it, based on their comments) and have the one with the most friends (or fans) win.

  14. Baronofbefoulment says:

    Why would you tell them that anyone with a random IP generator could win this. Now people can cheat and magically get 100’s of votes in a matter of minutes.

  15. ModernGuitarist says:

    42 minutes left! =D

  16. tony93666 says:

    I’ve read all the entries, my vote goes to akaboo69 – he deserves it. Just because you don’t like your current amp doesn’t mean you should just get one for free… it should go to someone who actually needs it, not just a popularity contest. My 2 cents…

    – and to the chick whining about her boyfriend’s love of playing music, you shouldn’t even be in this.

  17. jaclyn says:

    you realize.. anyone with a random ip generator can rig this…..

  18. admin says:

    wasss up. we’re getting close !!

  19. Linqua says:

    hey guys dont be hating on the chick im sure she loves her boyfriend and wants to be closer to him again

  20. Satch7699 says:

    Thanks for this opportunity TTK!

  21. gibson says:

    I vote satch7699

  22. Gabes says:

    The girl doesn’t deserve to win; she needs a new boyfriend, not an amp to give away…

  23. Troy Axe says:

    ericakima, you don’t deserve the amp. If your boyfriend doesn’t give you the attention you want, what you need is a new boyfriend. Not a free amp to “buy” his attention.

    In my opinion, the amp should go to linqua2112.
    He is honest, and a true guitar player and music lover.

  24. Baronofbefoulment says:

    Yes, I made it. I hope I win. The Tone King ROCKS.

  25. Linqua says:

    woo! i made it to the final list! if i end up winning ill def have to figure something out to give back to TTKs community!

  26. dclaudiu79 says:

    I didn’t make it to the top 10, but I really appreciate the great work you do for the community.
    Now I understand how hard it is to choose someone for the free give-away 🙂
    As I don’t own any sort of guitar amp .. my vote goes to Entry 2: (akaboo69).

    Rock on!

  27. jaclyn says:

    so, not to sound like i’m picking on anyone, but, why is that erika chick even in this? i mean, there are other people slightly more worthy of the amp, part of me thinks she’s tossing out naked pictures for votes… i’ll vote for the person i think deserves it the most… rather than some random chick who doesn’t know shit about “guitars, amps and pickups(?)”

  28. juan jose says:

    well maybe nexy time 🙁

  29. wendy napier says:

    i vote for akaboo69, hope it counts like this… i can be dense about technical stuff, good thing you aren’t giving me an amp, lol…

  30. ModernGuitarist says:

    Either if I win or lose, I still find it awesome you included me in the poll. =D

  31. Craig Fish says:

    Bummer, I didn’t make the cut. Oh well, I’m sure whoever gets it will be thrilled.
