Hey all, I'm Robin.
I'm a retired US Navy Electronics Tech as of January of 2012. My Military career involved aircraft carriers mostly. I was part of the 1990-1994 major overhaul of the USS Enterprise, and the Precom crew of the USS Ronald Reagan and USS George H.W. Bush. I'm on VA disability because of frequent severe migraines caused by damage in my cervical spine.
In order to have some fun in life, I started a small business designing and building custom tube amps and effects. I specialize in low wattage tube amps and preamps. I don't make a whole lot of money at it, and I don't plan on ever doing any major expansion. But I do enjoy what I do and I plan to do it for as long as I can. Unfortunately, one of the downfalls of the headaches is that they are unpredictable and sometimes last for weeks at a time, so my build times are longer than I would like.
