The original C4, #001, completed in July 2004. Home made circuit boards, hand drilled face with paper labeling. Only 2 opto speed settings. Still going strong and in regular gig use.

"Tube amp head in a suitcase" circa 1999, built for the Kingsmen guitarists' use on fly gigs. This is third generation with a 12AX7 preamp tube, 12AQ5 push-pull power tubes, output transformer and speaker load simulator, all in a half rack box. This drives the Stewart PA-200B amp, run bridged to deliver 100W+ to the speakers in a Fender Twin or a 4x12 cabinet. The result is a dead quiet, solid sounding tube amp that gets LOUD.
