    Not the best pic by any stretch, but here's the inside of my pride and joy, my Brunetti Mister B! bass preamp.

    Yep, that's seven tubes. Two channels of sonic bliss.

    Picture of the power section of my Traynor YBA3. Shows four bias adjustment pots and phase inverter balance. The big brown things are the "widow maker" caps.

    I bought this amp for a friends daughter who is learning bass, and now guitar,keys and drums... I paired it up with a aggie gs112. IMHO it sounds AS GOOD as Eden wt550 or Thunderfunk 550. I've played them all myself at my fairly loud church gig.

    I got the yorkville cheap ($125) because the input circuit board was "iffy". turns out two short wires going down to the main board. apparently when some past users would try to tighten the upper input jack which would put torque on the little circuit board (pictured upper right) finally cracking one or both wire soldering connections. a $15 fix.
