Found this for those that were not there. There may be a more complete list somewhere else. Include solder and one of those extra hands with magnifier also came in handy. Wire strippers and wire cutters also.

Hey don't forget about me! I'm in !
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

Just a reminder about Amp Deposits. I have received about 40% of the deposits. We would like to have all of these in by April 15. If you have not gotten an email from me with details and you are on the confirmed list please PM me.

If you are on the contingency list hang tight. There are about 7 amps left and RobertR will be sorting this out soon.

Thanks, Ed

In two weeks it might all be sorted out, after the deadline. But until then, when we know for certain who's really in or out, I can't make any progress on the contingency list.

I'm going to officially bow out of the tube amp build for this year.
I have more amps than I could possibly use, and really no small speaker that a 100w amp could justify at all.

So that leaves 2 more amps up for grabs.

I've been happy with my modded Marshall 9200 which is ~80 WPC with 8 vintage 6L6GC's. I've bi-amped it (and at times tri-amped) with TFM-45's. It drives my stock ALS w/60" Originals to enough volume to not feel the need for more power on it's own, but the overall sound is a bit cleaner while bi-amping.

100 Watt of tubes -can- be enough power; especially when bi-amped since then your net is 200WPC.

According to Ed (sea), we have everyone (almost) paid up - a couple are at the "check's in the mail" stage. But it looks like 64 amps are on order.

That being the case, there will be a few extras for those who asked to get one way back when, before the rules were finalized. I will be contacting those people to see if they are still interested. If so, they will have to get a deposit to Ed 'posthaste'. I have to get a final number to Bob before it's time to order things like chassis, transformers, boards, etc.

It's already too late to up an order from one to two amps, unless much later in the game a few extras somehow emerge.
