    Gidday all.

    Thanks for creating and being apart of this amazing resource for us all to enjoy.

    I'm a 40 something dude living at the end of the supply chain in little ole NZ. My musical journey is one of stops and starts. More starts than stops so far. But having had a guitar hiatus for the last 7 or 8 years I had a desire to pick up the axe again. Finding it cranky and full of static and breakups, I realised that the 30 year old wiring was dearly in need of some TLC.

    That was the segue into this....

    Until a week ago I had no idea that I wanted to build my own tube amp. Now my OCD is in full flight and I can see myself hitting "add to cart" in the near future.

    In the meantime; I'll feed my obsession with everything that my fellow creators are doing. So thank you all in advance for sharing your knowledge, your mistakes and your successes.

    Cheers.

    Kia ora,

    from a fellow antipodean. Although, it's been over 20 years since I left old Dunners Town.

    Noho ora mai.

    Welcome aboard,
    If you only learn half as much as I have, you're going to be happy! I can't imagine a question you could have that someone won't be willing to help you through, or at least advise you in what direction you might consider.
