    I just stumbled onto their website today and see a huge goodbye message.

    I chose my Mesa over the Madison, kinda wish I would have tried out the Madison. Sad to see them go. I've always wanted one, especially for the sake of the badass glowing sword logo. My buddy in Twisted Tower Dire's sounded great too. Hopefully I can score one on ebay sometime around tax time.

    Those guys caught a lot of shit on HC and SS.org for rumors that were WAAAAY exaggerated. Andy was a GREAT guy and Madison amps sounded KILLER! One of the cheapest amps I owned over the years and definitely in my top 3 favorites... RIP.

    My bassist had a madison amp and cab, both of which broke. Guitar amps were okay, but I heard a lot about them breaking. Madison is from my hometown so I knew a lot of people who used them.

    That sucks. I got to talk to Andy a couple of years back at their NAMM show booth. He seemed to be one of the good guys in the industry. But as he says on his site: "I just never could acquire the knack for “every man for himself” business dealings. I’m a hand shake kinda man and hand shakes aren’t worth anything in this business."
