Congratulations to our Setup Smackdown Winners!
Best High Gain Setup
Doug Miller, Toronto, Ohio
A unique effect chain that produces an amazing tone, Doug's "Classic Dirty DM" got our attention right away. The use of the Peavey Classic 30, along with overdrive, fuzz and delay reminded us of how creative AmpKit users are. Doug's entry was selected as the winner by the crew at Peavey Electronics, and he'll be receiving a Peavey AT-200 auto-tuning guitar.

Best Clean/Acoustic Setup
Charlie Thomas, Frisco, TX
Charlie's entry "Slap Happy" is a great combination of the Fargen Super Collider and multiple delays. This feel-good setup has a crisp high-end that accentuates steel-string play, and was selected as the grand prize winner by Ben Fargen himself. Charlie will be receiving a Sonic Edge Tumbleweed clean boost and compression pedal.

Best Bass Setup
Nicola Daga, Padua, Italy
Nicola's entry "Come Together Over Bass" features the Ashdown ABM 900 with an optional Delay, Wah, and Octapuss. This rich setup gave our office floor a good rumble without sacrificing tonality. Nicola's setup was selected by the gang from Ashdown Engineering, and he will be receiving the Ashdown MiBass 220 compact bass amp head.
