"You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato......"
                                                                      Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

The idea of amps with green handles quite literally began from a dream I had back in 2010.  Everywhere I looked in my dream I saw amps with green handles. I remember telling my dear wife, who has suffered patiently through at least a dozen such inspirations, about my new found direction.  She thought it was a good idea....... So, off I went on a new adventure.  I have many times wondered, as quoted above, if my inspiration was simply misinterpreted midnight indigestion, a fragment of underdone potato? I guess time will tell.

Along the way I have had the good fortune to run into people who have encouraged me to keep going.  One thing has always led to the next and amps have paved the way to building guitars as well.  Music has given me much over the years and building amps and guitars has allowed me to stay in touch with what's happening.  Nothing is more thrilling, or nerve-racking, for me than watching people make beautiful music from something I have built.  I admire their effort and discipline in creating something unique.  "Shine on you crazy diamonds".
