    I had posted about some troubles I had with my recently purchased ERT33/31 and received a lot of help from fellow forumites.

    I contacted Fred again as my problem was beyond just a 5879 tube and he really took the time to listen to what was going on and was extremely helpful. I think when I had called him originally, I was extremely flustered that the amp of my dreams was not functioning properly (I got it used) and he was probably pretty busy. I was really glad I called again.:AOK Thanks Fred!

    Unfortunately, I have to send the amp to him to get fixed. I could tell the amp will sound fantastic when running properly, bummed out it I never really got to hear it in all its glory.

    I'll post an update when I hear back. I miss it already.:(

    We all have our good and bad days. FT is normally a tremendously helpful guy. Best of luck with the repairs.

    Yeah, it was blazing for a while, near 100, which is unusual. We usually have milder summers... Global warming?:messedup

    Yep, Fred is a class act, and i've enjoyed doing business with him...


    And, in Arkansas, the devil came round the other day, and said it was too damn hot, and he was goin' back to hell where it was cooler....

    And it's not even July yet......

    August will be real fun!!!!

    Thanks Leon,

    Its difficult to get this amazing amp and not be able to use it. I have a feeling the amp is really going to be great once its fixed by its creator.
    :AOK

    i have nothing but good things to say about fred (even though i've never owned one of his amps). he was instrumental and extremely helpful in terms of educating me about and directing me towards a selmer zodiac.

    Fred's a great guy and definetly stands behind his work. Might take a little time to get it done, but it will get done. Luckily, he's a busy man and makes one hell of an amp.
