    ...my room...
    just felt like sharing

    my uncle Van built his first amp the other day...
    its a 10 watt class A tube .. it was some kit he got for his birthday. He used to run a guitar store down here in memphis/southaven anyway hes going to start buidling amps
    His 10 watt he built; smokes his 80 watt solid state randall.
    Hes a really cool guy though.. hes been married to my aunt for 12 years, and im now just getting to know him and talk to him on a regular basis.
    does anybody who lived in the mid south back about 5 years ago give or take a couple years remember a store called "toomeys music" ???
    My uncle owned it...Anyway, Im gonna see if i can pay him to build me a good bass tube amp for around 600
    (the 10 watt cost him 100 to build)
