blackburn film

How can you get a great tone without a good understanding of what makes your amp tick? — EL34, EL84, 6L6, KT66, KT88, 12AX7, 12AT7, 12AU7, EF86, Output Transformers, Power Transformers, Capacitors, Resistors and everything else that it takes to make a tube amp sing!

Well I hadn't seen it before, many thanks, and my Dad used to work there. Walked past the place dozens of times when I was a kid, it was only about 4 miles from where I am now.
