A few months ago Tom spent quite a bit of his time educating / advising me on a Little Bear P3 tube amp pre kit. He offered to order it / assemble kit / ship to me for no real gain on his end other than to help me. I’ve been using the LB P3 on / off with several different tube amps with great results. He even provided upgrade tubes and caps. His advise was spot on. Tom is an awesome and knowledgable AKer. Much appreciated.
