    Ha, we can do that. I have the set. YGM-1, YGM-2, YGM-3, YGM-4 and the reissue YGM-3. I also have six Bass Mates at 15-25 watts each. They are amazing guitar amps too. And then there's all the Fenders...

    I sold my DR and kept my YGM 3! No regrets.

    I do understand. These amps are unsung heroes. As good as just about anything out these. I'm glad you understand.

    I'm looking forward to attending. Any hotel recommendations would be greatly appreciated. If it's possible I'd like to bring the guys from our band if you could squeeze us in for a few minutes.

    I stay at the Green Acres when I go. It's very very clean, and just off the highway. It's about a 10 minute easy drive to the Roundup, and to downtown Kingston. It's motel style, drive up to your door.

    Yeah...last year was stupid loud. The fact that the drums need to be mic'd should be a hint...

    Robbie's band is fantastic! I have had the pleasure of seeing them a few times here in London. They would fit in perfectly.

    Wish this was a little closer.:(

    Okay this one is happening for the 5th straight year! Everyone is welcome, it's happening up in Canada so try and make the pilgrimage to the event. Meet the one the only Joe Carducci, the artist that made this poster (that you will get a copy of) Mark Rehkopf (check him out on FB). $20 Canadian bucks gets you in, a meal, event swag, a good time. Some how I'll get these on a shirt and they will be for sale at the event. Couldn't ask for a better day. Hope to see you there. Feel free to message me if you have any questions.
