I got a milkman The Amp about a year ago and love it. It’s become not just my steel amp, but my main amp for gigging and recording.


Lately it would have been really handy to have a tube pre fo ...

You're correct that the change is on the 10th string. I made a typo. I'm going to upload a corrected image as well.

Thanks!
