She's finally alive, and back to kick-arse spec after a TON of bad luck, delays, faulty parts and other problems. Man, I've got to tell you this thing is an absolute MONSTER! VERY special thanks to Psycho Bass Guy for all of his advice, suggestions, overall help, and tons of patience with my 3 billion PM's and non-stop questions. It got a new power tube set (Sovtek KT-88's), all new preamp tubes (12w7's and 12DW7's are J/J, C64, and 12BH7's are NOS), a new power transformer, all new cap kit, and a few resistors have been replaced too. It is 100% ready to rock, and I couldn't be happier with it. Man these things are loud.....I can't get past 5 on the master without it becoming painfully loud in the living room.
