Hi, all. I really hope the BBS comes back. It was my first visit on the net every morning, even before my morning coffee. Sure do miss all you folks!

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Me too. Like they say, you don't know what you got till it's gone. I've tried to go to a few other BBS but the others just don't compare.

I learned most of what I know from the BBS. It saved me from buying Pittman, Weber, or O'Connor's books. At least the chat transcripts are back.
