Contact me via email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for assistance locating lighting for your vintage gear. I'm in Michigan in the New York Time Zone (East Coast), please include brand and model number in the subject line. I no longer dispatch to the EU states and the UK due to restrictions added in 2021.

My old web site http://home.earthlink.net/~dwojo/ or http://home.earthlink.net/~dwojo/index.html - with email address email@example.com is discontinued. I find that Audiokarma (AK) is a great group of audio enthusiast with a wealth of experience, knowledge, and information!! Dave.
