    20200322_001631.jpg Its NAD here in my guitar room. I put a lot of thought into this Italian made amp before I decided to just do it. I'm very happy with it. It sounds very nice...very loud but very nice. There's not much about these little 20 watt wonders out there on the interweb so I thought I'd get some pictures and show you all how beautifully these are made. Happy with my choices tonight.

    ...trying to get the photos to post...wait for it.

    2 x 6V6 tubes, 3 x 12AX7 tubes. Solid state rectifier. 22 watts. Very clean, very loud. Not as "Fender-like" as expected. It's bright, but not obnoxiously bright. "Brill" is presence. I bought it used and I got a pretty good deal for how well it's made. The logo is a bit overwhelming, but it has a certain charm.
