    I'm curious if anyone has tried an Oahu amp, and what is their thought on this amp? if Keef ordered 20 of those, they're prolly not that bad he?

    I had one of those for a while a couple of years back. I didn't know they were still making them. It was a cool sounding amp, I liked it better than a Pro Jr I had at the time. What is the MSRP on them now?

    Our harp player just got an original one and it sounds great. I just heard it at our gig last night. It has about 8 watts and what seemed to be a 10" speaker, although it might have been an 8".

    I've got a couple. Oliver at Tab Funkenwerks re-racked up my Telefunken V-72's for me and went through them. He makes superlative versions of the V-72 and V-76 mic pres. Also makes a fantastic bass DI based on the V-72

    thx for the infos guys,

    Blueshound, sorry i have no clue how much these are going for lately. I will try to find out more about it. :)

    lakesider, yeh I was actually checking those Tab telefunken preamps at first when i saw they were also building amps. Those preamps get rave reviews and i might add one to my arsenal soon.
    Could you elaborate on those amps tonally, are they close to the deluxe family? early breakup or? i'm not familiar with supro-like amps, but i'm getting intereted lately in those small combos.

    the Oahus that Oliver and Jeff Marshall built aren't really like Supro/Valco amps but they are very cool. I have a dual 6V6 one and another that has 4 EL84's. The dual 6V6 was a combo with on 10" but I had it made into a head when I was using it as part of my Steve Earle rig. The 4 EL84' one has 2 voices. "Spank" and "Stank". Mine is #2. I guess that Gibbons fellow got #1. It isn't really loud but it is pretty damn cool.
