It took many years to unravel the myth of the legendary original Trainwreck amps built by Ken Fischer. Gladius was able to extensively test original Trainwrecks, and today presented his version of the Express amp.

The US made transformers, which cost three times as much as conventional ones, but ultimately make the decisive difference, were a big challenge.

Ken with his original amps still used old tubes from the 60s. Gladius, however, is only able to use new tubes (old tubes have the clarity, the explosive attack and an unbelievably great compression), that alone was already one huge challenge.

But also the arrangement of components, as well as their location underlines the genius of Ken Fisher again. I myself first heard his amps at the Ultra Sound Studios in New York and they have definitely been my all-time favorite amps ever since. For me personally, the Gladius Express is the best new amp that has ever been built
