Time Travelling: The Vintage Audio Project

Apr 18, 2017

I’ve been fascinated by vintage audio – in particular, tube amps and horn speakers – for years. And while I have owned several more modern tube amps, I’ve yet to truly dive in. We’re changing all that today. Starting this month, I’ll be hunting vintage gear and writing about the experience.

Duelund 16GA Tinned Copper Hookup Wire Experiment – Bottlehead S.Ex. Amp

Big Lazy – Live at the Rebel Lounge

Apr 11, 2017

Went to see some friends play last night at the Rebel Lounge. They were great, as always. There are few things better than hanging with friends watching live music.
