Don Audio Tube Amps Update
25th August 2005
Anyone interested in Tube Amps should know by now that there is a Tube Amp doctor
on the Island by the name of Don Audio and that he is now producing a range of
high quality, hand built, all tube guitar amps right here in the Isle of Man.
See image above.
Don Says: My "amplifiers are all hand-made to order and they can be
'tailored' to suit an individual's requirements... cosmetically - with optional
covering colours & hardware in black, nickel or 9ct gold plated, control knobs
can be black, white, cream, red or even blue, engraved panels are also possible
in custom colours though personally I think that the black works best... and
electronically, I can adjust drive levels, EQ & choice of valves to suit a
particular instrument & style of playing to suit the buyers' requirements".
Based in Ramsey, Don should be your first port of call when looking for Tube amp
service, purchase or advice. His contact details are:
A.R. Ault. (Don Audio)
62 Waterloo Road
Isle of Man
