    Just happened to run across this new Wienman clip a couple of minutes ago. I believe that F5 was delivered a couple(maybe 3) days ago. Sweet sounds.

    Don,

    i just listened to your new A5 recording again. I'm biased but to my ear that little A5 sounds pretty darn nice. What is it now 2 months old, one month, i forget?
