Started By bracurrie, Jan 30 2014 04:52 PM My family thinks I have gone off the deep end. I believe I am too old for a mid-life crisis (although I am not low-T). I just bought another tube amplifier. That make five so far. Plus the loaner then its six. OK, OK I know there are few of you that have been through more but for me its a lot. I got a tip a while back from someone on the forum about Justin Weber and his fledgling enterprise making tube amplifiers called ampsandsound. The information from the web site with a […]

Not all projects have a name. This was a one-off I did while toying around in the shop that now lives in a friends office.

Started By DeanG, Jan 21 2014 11:31 PM: I enjoy my weekly call from Dave Harris since it always provides an opportunity for a good rant. This is cheap entertainment for Dave, and I’m pretty sure it’s the main reason he calls. Sometimes we’re forced to talk business, since we often share customers, and other times we actually talk about the things that make music sound better. “So, I’ve got this amp over here.” “What is it?” “A tube amp.” “I’m sick of tube amps.” “You might like this one.” “I like all tube amps, but I’m still sick of them.” “This […]

Earlier this week on the way to work I received my third speeding ticket this year. Rather than blame the distance or my lack of time management. I’m choosing to lay sole blame on Paul Simon and his Graceland album. I have an incredibly large music collection but seem to really enjoy driving to 10 or 15 albums that I’ve ripped onto a jump drive to be played in my car. All three speeding tickets of occurred in San Diego County and listening to Graceland; obviously a bad combination! Driving home tonight at 12:45 in the morning on rocking out […]

To be honest it’s a massive distraction from my work life, which is why my wife allows for it. I work in 2 of the highest acuity settings for mental health and am a front line provider of mental health services. (The two setting are a prison in California and a large community hospital’s emergency department). Over the course of my life, I’d drink too much and worked too much and I find the latter to be a vastly more healthy behavior. The idea of Ampsandsound as a company is a way for me to not be continuously losing money […]

Hey there everyone! I wanted to bring some attention to the work I’ve being doing for the past 6 months. Ive been a bit more absent here, though have been moding and building at an even faster rate. At the gentle and not so gentle prodding of a few forum members I started an audio company. The support of the many DIY forums I’m a member of including Klipsch forum here has been instrumental in shaping both my technical understanding, values and principals I have sought in my love of music and attention to detail. I’ve only owned 3 true […]
