    I have a Crate FW120, and I'm looking to modify the head. I live in Ga, can anyone give me advice on how to or what shops would be here for me to take it to.

    so it was raining this morning at 4 am when I got up. I looked at my empty red blues breaker cab and was very sad.

    I made a fire in the woodstove and got some coffee going.

    I went into the "room of shame" and wamed up the lighting cutter.

    I let out all my sadness with a 40 minute session with my firebird 3

    went back downstairs and made some eggs

    but that empty cab was bugging me

    so I yanked my 'SOULTRAMP" special Don, conversion, amp out of the head cab

    mounted it the 1 x 12 Red blues breaker with a fresh re-coned 60's huge magnet speaker and was ready. not a perfect fit but that ain't what I'm looking for

    oops, how about some freshly pulled 6v6 Motorola tubes out of a recent organ pickup on the side of the road and power on.......... Yes !

    Don, you did a great job on this chassis. it was nothng till you got ahold of it and I'm still lovin it . not for gigging, but I wish every guy who starts a "bedroom amp" thread could hear and buy this .although 2x 6v6 it's not too loud and not to soft . call it Goldilocks" because it's just right

    thanks yet again don , it's a blast and loves the MXR Micro Amp

    Glad to hear you're still rock'n that dumpster amp. It was a fun project.

    I miss Rich as well.
