Umm, yes neikeel, yes -- thank you! But please send them to my friend Bash instead. He'll get them to me. Really -- he will. Seriously, trust BASH...

Absolutely stunning. Utter perfection.

Those new front panels look awesome too...will they be available separately for the JTM45 kits?

I haven't even looked at the price tag yet, but I may have to...I was planning to build one eventually, but how can I compete with this?

I'm stunned! That's a looker. How does it sound? Is it a big different in tone compared to a JTM45? I guess it blows your hair away...

Thanks John. I wish I could really capture the essence of it in a sound clip.

I emailed George just the other day and told him what an incredible piece this is. Totally impressive and a beauty to behold! I am sure it sounds as stunning as it looks....maybe better!
Hats off to you again George, you are raising the bar!

Guy's if you don't order this you're crazy!

Best to all,
Greg G.

Mines' on order... I can't wait... I could use some advice on it if anybodys got the time and/or knowledge though.


I would like throw out some questions to the group regarding the optional upgrade in power tubes to the NOS GEC KT66's... The standard tubes that come with the amp are the Valve Art KT66's.

1. Is there a huge difference in tone between the two tube types? (i.e. NOS GEC KT66's vs. VALVE Art KT66's)? From what I've read there is... The question is how much? Meaning, would the amt of upgrade in tone warrant the large upgrade in price when comparing the two? I have no issue with spending the cash, just wanna know if the tone warrants the monies.

2. I know there's no straight answer to this due to environmental variables but... Does anyone have a rough estimate on tube lifespan for these two tube types? I did google for an answer however I didn't find too many hits... I found one site that stated the NOS GEC KT66 tubes last 10,00 hours compared to "others" which are rated for 1,000 hours. Obviously, I can rationalize spending the cash on the upgrade if they last 10 times as long as a regular tube.

Thanks in advance... As you can tell, just trying to rationalize the extra monies.
