    How incredibly awesome it would be if Ken Fischer would start producing new Trainwrecks!!! Of course I couldn't afford one but it would still be very cool!:dude

    Looks like that site is "under new management" with the former owner stepping aside/getting bought out.

    It's owned by "Trainwreck Amplifiers" in Houston Tx, and Gregg Siegal of Pearland Tx owned it since 1998, and appears to own it until 2010. Last updated August 18th 2005.

    Curiously interesting.

    Wow, that is interesting.

    Looks like they'll be making the new 'Wrecks in an Afghan mountian village.

    My reading of it is that the original owner of the domain/"host" of the site was doing Ken a favor by hosting and maintaining the site...

    I don't believe that the ownership of the domain has changed hands, but I may be wrong.

    It just appears to me as if the current host/domain owner will be bowing-out as an "active" participant, and that Ken (and probably some other folks) will be taking a more active role in developing/maintaining site content from here on in...






    But I've been wrong before, you know...? ;)

    Oh sure there is....

    There are lots of amp builders doing their own thing and only controlling their own trademarks and personal names.:cool:

    He missed his big chance last month when it expired. I renewed it in Ken's name.

    Dave Orban has it right.

    It would appear you know as much about tube circuits as you do about domain ownership. Why not contact Adam Stark, Scott Henderson, Jim (Scumbag amps) Seavall, and get the true details about this before spouting off on subjects you know nothing about. You might be as surprised as they were to learn the whole truth about what actually happened.
