Hi All

Your chance to build your own vacuum tube amplifier is coming up again in May.  12 and 19 May are tentative dates. If you'd like to attend, have a look at our kits at www.marsamps.co.za and contact us.

I have a bigger version of the grey and white model on the couch. Lotsa power, tuneful and loud output, high (idle) energy consumption  ;D
