New member here, name is Greg. These are my first real tube amps, they've been recapped, some resistors replaced, and they're sounding very, very nice. Just wanted to introduce myself and hope to learn what makes these beuats tick.

thanks Gregg!!

I've been an optical-electronic technician, in the Canadian Forces, for the past 18yrs. I've only been into audio for the last 4yrs, I only wish'd I'd knew sooner!! Ah well, I'm here to stay now and that's all that matters.

LoL Gregg!!

my first netpay, in 1986 was $255/bi-monthly(iirc), fast forward 20 years and my pay is now almost 10x that, it's gone up some.

...most of my audiogoodies have been of the score variety, I do have about $5K wrapped up in my main-rig though, still a bargain I think!
