DC Developments - one of the best boutique amp makers in the world, Dennis Cornell has worked as a designer for Dallas Arbiter in the 'good old days', and more recently has been a consultant to Fender Musical Instruments.
He's made custom amps for Hank Marvin, Eric Clapton, Andy Fairweather-Lowe, and Robin Trower and others including myself. He provided me with a cracking Vox AC30 clone based on original schematic specifications.
For my studio I required a head and cab with the cab designed with chassis shelf to give a combo acoustic, and the head with the original channel carried on from the AC15 and the later AC30 TB normal and Top Boosts channels, but no tremolo circuit.
I explained to Dennis that I had discovered that carbon composition resistors when pushed produced a more euphonic type of distortion than that of metal film and that it wasn't just some kind of voodoo amp myth.
So he made exactly what I asked for and helped me every step of the way with the practical input needed in my design consultations with him to make a really smooth sounding amp which I miked with a Shure SM57 microphone through a Vintech Neve 1073 clone microphone pre-amp...

Two Notes Audio Engineering - valve amplifiers are wonderful things unless you have to carry them anywhere or record them in anything but a very well soundporoofed room.
Over the years many companies have tried many things to put 'that' sound into a box with varying success. The best way however is to have a real amp and reduce it's volume without changing the tone with an attenuator, and perhaps also replace the speaker with a cabinet simulation.
Two Notes of France have succeeded admirably with both aspects of this with their VB101 Torpedo and related products and have been a great company to be a customer of... I cannot recommend their products highly enough.
