    My first amp.
    Built in Small Stone phaser helped me cross that Bridge of Sighs.

    That was my first amp too!

    Quite some time after I got it (10-12 years?), I gave that amp, and all my pedals to a native Alaskan kid who could shred like mad but had terrible cheap gear that he was struggling with at an open-mic type of venue. I thought he deserved some better gear, and that I was "paying it forward" a bit by giving my stuff to him. His dad was there and thought I must have been some kind of pedo! (*was not/am not!).

    I listened in the car/blue tooth and the bass was so loud that it was hard for me to take in. There should be more videos very soon. I remember taking those in on trades in the early 80’s. Brings back memories. I hope it does well for old time sake.
