This Bruno Underground 30 Anniversary with Reverb and Tremolo - #23 of 25. It's full of Mullards and signed "with love" from Tony Bruno himself. It must be worth alot so I'd better not drop it!

Pretty damn gorgeous even without the reverb (that's why it's on my bench). Got reverb sorted now and she's drippy, thick & lush.

That's rarer than a rare thing and one of my dream amps.

That "grill cloth" doesn't look original though... Someone modified the cabinet?
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

I'm pretty sure it's original, the guy that owns it purchased it brand and there were only 25 of these "custom" amps ever made. I wouldn't touch a thing!

Okay, that grill cloth caught me out. I believe it is actually paper grill cloth.... the same stuff that Simon of Jansen used to sell...
