New Torres 1.5 watt tube amps (kit or pre-made) (external link)
>The present design project -- the "Tiny Tone" amp -- has been covered in Vintage Guitar for the last three months (approx jun/jul/aug 1999). Completed amp heads and combos will be available from us in about 2 or 3 weeks (mid to late Sep 99). It is a 1 to 2 watt complete tube amp, preamp and poweramp and could easily be used with a load resistor or many other systems as an effect. Check our web page for prices and availability. We have dozens of orders even prior to my completing the pricing of the items.
>The "Tiny Tone" amps are on our web page right now. Orders are being taken, and we are in the process of designing more and more circuits. The general demand is for more features, and that will be our focus. Check it out.
