Steve Gunner


Steve Gunner (shown above on stage at Casino Rama with Heatseeker HS-18 and Skyraider SR-30 heads and two 1x12 CB cabs) has been a professional musician since his teens. Guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, singer, composer, arranger and producer are just some of the hats he wears. While touring with platinum selling "Creedence Clearwater Revisited" he also plays harmonica and percussion. 

Gunner also has his own band, performing an eclectic repertoire, which includes his own music. Living near Hollywood in sunny Southern California, he has composed, produced, performed on and/or recorded many commercials and soundtracks as well as many album tracks. He has appeared with various artists on several TV shows such as  "Solid Gold" and "The Tonight Show".  

Steve uses a Mack Heatseeker HS-18: 

"I like to get my tone from the amp rather than a bunch of pedals. That is, a cranked up tube amp controlled from the guitar. 

Mack amps deliver! The tone is sweet and the touch response is very dynamic. Mack amps elegantly magnify the different tone colors of all my guitars. 

Actually, I do use a few pedals, and Mack amps seem to like them.  

I use a variety of speaker cabinets, 1x15, 1x12, 2x12, in open and closed back configurations using vintage and modern speakers. But I recently had the pleasure of playing through the 1x12 Mack cabinet and was surprised how BIG it sounds! 

I don't mind paying real money for a quality product, but the fact that Mack amps are so affordable makes the tone even sweeter!

Steve GunnerUnlike some "boutique" amp makers who get too big for their britches, customer support at Mack is quick and personal. Don is a great guy who is knowledgeable and passionate about his craft."
