I like the woo audio wa7 firefly, it's cool with its glass cover. Also the little dot I+, the black and gold go really well together

GOOD LORD !    When I saw this I had to try searching for more of his amps, but found surprisingly little info.   Are these all one-off ?   Does he sell them somewhere?  if they sound half as good as they look they would be amazing.

Definitely beautiful amps for sure!

Frank is a long time Head-Fier. You can find him here if you look.

He often exhibits his work at Bay Area meets.

His amps are steampunk inspired and, IIRC, built as a hobby for his own enjoyment.

Saw and listened to Frank's latest work at the last Southern Cal Meet in March.  A great gentleman!

Don't know if Jude got it, got it or just "borrowing."
