Hi zven!

So I try to take over that f****** part of translation:

The text of the link says that the guy (i.e. the author) wants to know things about that amp as well. (He has problems with the amp’s fuses, if he turns it on there is a crack and then noothing happens anymore, etc.)

blues_guy mentioned that this was a good possibility to you to cantact this guy, maybe he has some more information now cause the thread is a few days old (20/05/2001 *smile*). You should try it!

Hope it was a little bit useful!
If there are any mistakes call 911, I don’t bother! *smileagain*


So long, kick ass!
thanks!! devil head!! kindely thanks,,,,, a guess that something like that was writtenthan i allso saw that someone rekomended 6v6 in this amp on that forum!!

Hi Zven,

next time I try swedish [;)]

Remember it´s first of april today.

In the text of the forum I linked, there is mentioned a german town.
That is the place of the ampbuilder.

I know that vintage amps were built in beginning 80ies.
I rember an advertising in the german musicians magazine "fachblatt".

It was the time of the rise of the boogie brand and its predessors, acoustic, kitty hawk and also pcl vintage.

Another idea would be to post in the forum of the Gitarre & Bass magazine and ask directly one of magazine publishers ( f. e. Heinz Rebellius). They have a good knowledge and a good archice.

Under the button "write" on the left you can open a new thread.

I wish you much success!
