If you were building 12xxx you could get both at valvestorm.com. You can try to contact them anyway for a custom order though. I don't know if you succeed but it's worth a try.

Anyway...

http://kurtsequipment.com/reproboards/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - turret board

I ordered my chassis/panels from Ceriatone (http://www.ceriatone.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and was satisfied. Had to drill some holes but nothing major. Or there are other options like http://www.mojotone.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. I have no experience with them though.

This is a perfect chassis for my next '71 build. I love Laydown PT and caps mounted on chassis. Who will be the maker though?

This chassis was design by VelvetGeorge (based on one of his 69s) for ValveStorm. Thanks VG!

Some time ago I read a thread about opening kinda similar shop to american valvestorm in EU. UK I think. But I can't remember who it was from. Do you guys have some info? Is it going to happen? If so, when? The shipping/tax costs are making the builds pretty expensive..

This would be so COOL. There are many amp builders on the other side of the Atlantic too. ;)

Robert, those look great. Any idea when you'll have those? Are you doing them in limited number runs, or you'll have a good number in stock?

Even to Canada its getting pretty bad mate. The shipping from the supplier is fine. Its the guys with the badges at the border taking their piece of the pie that kills you. I can't even imagine what its costing you guys. :shock:

I like the snubbers and diodes on those separate boards. 8) Once again the community here has all this great stuff at our fingertips thanks to the hard work of people like George and Robert. Don't encourage copy cats, support the guys who pulled this craft back out of obscurity. It's the NOS neurosis that puts us on the path to bankruptcy, the chassis are a bargain with high overseas customs or not. I love getting stuff from Europe, Asia or down under, it's worth the cost just to know something has traveled so far to my little New Jersey work shop to complete a build. :D
