Some Cool Links
Here are some cool places that I always
Amps by one of the coolest and most knowledgeable amp guys around,
Mark Norwine. This amp
(the Turbo Pup) has been in the prototype stage for many years. I visited
Mark briefly and listened to his first iteration. It sounded great. By
the next time I visited him, he had trashed that circuit and started over
because it wasn't good enough! The finished product is both beautiful and
sonically stunning. If you like traditional tube amp tones, and great reverb,
look no further!
VST. They make the best vintage type replacement speakers for Fenders.
They also make some british type stuff and a bunch of other things. Good
speakers from good people. Be sure to check out the new place to be to
discuss amps on the net, the Weber
VST Amp discussion page!
The home of Uncle
Spot tube amp repair and restoration! You won't find a cooler guy than
Uncle Spot (aka Ron Veil). If you are in the San Jose/San Francisco area,
you'll want to check him out for repairs for sure.
Unofficial G&L Page. It's all about G&L's. Remember folks,
these are the REAL Fenders. Leo died at this company, so this is the real
deal. What more could you ask for than guitars made by THE MAN? There is
also a discussion in there. Also check out the official G&L
homepage. There are a lot of cool guitar pictures in there and some
Discussion Page Reissue. It's all about Telecasters. If you like Teles,
you need to go here and check it out. RIP the Original
Telecaster Discussion Page by Noam Pikelny.
Livesey's home page. This is a friend of mine from England that I met
on the net. I haven't been over there yet to see him but someday... He
always finds deals on amps that make you wonder how he gets them. He's
the king of good deals! But he keeps all the good stuff so don't even ask...
If you are into British amps you must go here!
The Hiwatt Story begins here. A very cool site about one of the best amps ever made, Hiwatt. The curator of the page seems to not have any contact info, so I linked it without permission. I hope the people don't mind... It's an awesome site!
and the Torpedoes. This is a cool Tucson band. Visit their web page
and tell them I sent ya. Buy their CD if you want to hear a raw, unmolested
live recording of a hard working blues band. Oh yeah, the music is good
too. Tony Uribe is the lead guitar player and part time singer, and he's
got a real cool page! Follow the link on his name. I'm probably the closest
thing they have to a guitar tech too...
Guitars. I make it no secret that I think this company makes some of
the coolest and best crafted guitars ever. Doesn't matter that they are
Japanese. They are good stuff.
motorcycles. What can you say? These are the Ferraris
of the motorcycle world. Their racing team is always elegantly dressed
and very professional in their demeanor. I get to practice my Italian with
them when I to to see the World Superbike race in Laguna
Hendrix. This is the official homepage kept up by the family company.
Go out and buy all the Hendrix albums you can. Band Of Gypsies is utterly
astounding and flabbergasting. I named my company after a song on there.
Machine Gun has the best live recorded guitar solo there ever was or will
"Blue" Ray. This dude can play! Go check out his page and the cool
sound files. Kenny's been around and his playing shows it. This guy is
a fellow tone monger, always searching for a new and different tone! If
you like big fat blues guitar, this is your man. If you are from the Bay
Area, then you already know about him.
Guitar. Girl guitars are made by Chris Larsen of Tucson Arizona! They
are as much a work of art as a guitar. I've played a few and they are truly
unique. The one I've included is one of my favorites from his page. There
are several others in there. All Girl guitars are unique! Chris is a cool
guy so go take a look.
custom amps. This guy will build you a totally custom amp! Go check
out the page for more info. This happens to also be the same guy that drew
the Supro Thunderbolt schematic for me that I didn't clean up yet...
Dave Stork of Stork
Audio is a swell guy. He always has something interesting to say on
alt.guitar.amps and has given me very valuable advice. His page is definitely
worth a look. If you are in the Hudson Valley region of New York, he's
your amp fixin man!
