Spring's Coming! Time for the Next B.A.S.S. Meetup! (Connect

It's coming up on that time again. What time, you ask? Time for the Third Annual Basspig Audiophile Society Social!

The way events are going, I'm likely to settle on April 5, a Saturday, for the meet. Our usual starting time of 2PM is planned.

Dinner and a buffet will be served upstairs, as usual.

The main attraction this year (assuming I can complete it in time!) will be my OTL vacuum tube amplifier. This dual mono amplifier, with separate power supply chassis, is being designed to a conservative 125 WPC rating and uses a dozen large beam tetrodes. The power supply is 1000VA for the high voltage and 40 amperes for the filaments. A veritable contender and should be interesting when the unveiling occurs.

As usual, there will be demonstrations of the world-famous Bass Pig sound system, and probably a shop discussion with demonstration at the shop of Amplifier Experts.

R.S.V.P. to basspig (the "at" symbol) basspig ( dot ) com for address/directions, etc.

The past two years have been great as far as turnout, with attendees from as far as 5 hours driving distance.

I hope to see some of you at this year's meet!
Take care,

I am fascinated by his rig without a doubt. It seems to be on my scale . So over the top that admission should be required.

I have a lot of work to do in preparing the OTL amplifier to be ready on time. Some of the voltage issues of having a not quite made to order power transformer for the high voltage. The shop has been busy, and I'm doing a lot of eBay auctions this month, on top of figuring income taxes, so it's going to be a close finish, probably with me working on the amp right up to the night before the big show!

Drop the B.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."
