However, my large diaphragm condenser microphone to capture soft Papa Nelson's voice is great, but I would prefer to have also a lapel wireless microphone on his shirt.

Who can bring one?

I will have two items made from kits from a company called Bottlehead. One item is a battery powered preamp and the other is a SET amplifier using a single 6DN7 tube for each channel. Bottlehead kits come with the best assembly instructions. If you can read to third grade level and know how to solder you can built one of their kits. Look for me at the show.

However there won't be any "activities" for people to build things at the show.
There might be some ACA kits availalble.

The best activity for kids is to build a component, then take it to the show for people to admire. My 8yr old nephew loved that. Otherwise I don't think it would be that interesting to 11yr olds or younger.

We do think an Amp Camp ( where newbies build ACA amps) would be a great addition to the show. Maybe on a day before or after. Maybe next year..

I have it on good authority that there will a couple hundred ACA partial kits available at the show at a very low, low cost. These are boards, semis, and possibly some other components.

Make sure to bring some extra cash for these goodies, folks!

They would be totally welcome in my room, where the intent is to have a
nice set of speakers for amp demos. They do bass as well?

Any writers, or aspiring writers out there who would like to cover the show for audioXpress?

I can't make it and I want to be sure the this show gets covered. It's going to be a great one.

If you only want to take lots of nice pictures and jot down some info I know a swell ghostwriter.

I hadn't planned on bringing the horn-loaded sub that loads from about 70-80 hz down. It is about 7 1/2 feet tall. Here's a picture of the Titan and the sub behind it - this one from Bruce Edgar's own system.

Let me see if I can fit it all into the Toyota Tacoma truck bed. Thanks for all the interest, too.

Cheers,

David
