It is very much appreciated!             Dale Murrow


How to Purchase OLD SCHOOL AMPS Products:

If you are interested in purchasing an amp or cabinet, please send me an e-mail or call me, indicating what you would like to buy. I will prepare a PayPal Invoice with the firm pricing on it, and then send it to your e-mail address.  You review the invoice for accuracy, and then click a "Pay" button. You then are taken to PayPal's secure payment processing page.  You can use your PayPal account or major credit card to make the payment. The funds are then deposited in my PayPal account, minus the small payment processing fee.

Product Availability - Currently, all of my amps and cabinets are "build to order". This may change in the future, but for now that is how I do it.  It usually takes about a month from the time the order is received until you will receive your amplifier. I have a short wait list right now, but if you inquire, I will give you an estimated completion date. We do have some standard cabinets on the shelf,and those would ship ASAP. 

Deposit, and Payments - For Amplifier orders, I will bill you for a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of the order. I use this deposit to purchase the more expensive parts such as transformers, speakers, cabinets and tubes.  When the Amp is complete and tested, and is ready to ship, I will invoice you again for the other 50% plus the shipping charges. I use Fedex Ground or Fedex Home Delivery, as it is the best deal I could find and Fedex takes good care of the package.  

Returns, Etc.

7 Day money back guarantee - If you purchase an amp or cabinet, and you are unhappy with it, you have 7 days to return it for a full refund. You will have to pay the shipping, and return it in the original packaging. It must be in like new condition. If it is not, you will have to pay a 10% restocking fee

Vintage Amp Restoration and Repairs:               
"We specialize in Vintage Tube Amplifier repairs, restoration, circuit modifications, Biasing, troubleshooting and updating vintage amplifiers to use modern 3 prong AC grounding".
 

Getting that Sound:   If you need help dialing your amp in to get the sound you are after, I can help! 

 
"I specialize in helping guitar and bassists get the sound they are looking for.  The players style, instrument, pickups and the guitars setup, choice of tubes, speaker and the cabinet are all critical factors. I can optimize the tube amplifier's circuitry to match these components, by dialing in the amplifier's tone and bias circuitry. I can do this WHILE YOU PLAY.  This allows you to hear the modification in REAL TIME.
 
Since the amplifier is a critical component of the overall sound, it's Gain Structure affects your overall technique and the amps overall response and tone.
If the Gain Structure in an amp is designed correctly, the amplifier will allow the player to feel the amps response yielding much greater control of the amps overall sound. I strive to build "touch sensitivity" into all my amplifiers".
