On Monday night I got to hang out with Ian and Dave of Down and Above. I made a couple of amps for them as Christmas presents and, well, between their schedules and my schedule, it took a while to come up with a mutually agreed upon time to hang out.

Here's Ian trying it out for the first time:

A couple of months ago, I had a Christmas sale planned, but due to some bad planning on my part, followed by a supplier who accidentally sent the wrong parts, I ran out of things to sell before I could put them on sale. :-(

So instead of a Christmas Sale, I'm having a Valentines Day Sale! It's exactly the same discount only it's in a completely different month!

The sale is going to be three dollars off a Stella Amp kit, from now until February 14th. It's Christmas in February!

I'm really excited to announce that my friend Luke has started up a new site called Solderbot! Solderbot is a service that will pre-assemble kits for you. So if you have an interest in a product, but don't have the time, or if you are a little apprehensive about the assembly process, Solderbot will sell you an assembled kit.

William wrote in with a great photo of his new Stella Amp:

Thank you very much for sending the replacement resistor. The Stella
amp is fantastic. Not only is it the best clean sounding battery
powered amp, but the overdrive sounds are stellar. It's so good that I
made it into an amp head so I can use it with any number of speaker
combinations. I've included a picture of the Stella connected to my
Emery Sound mahogany cabinet with a 10 inch Weber Alnico Blue Pup.

Phil Graham (@Roadstead) wrote in on twitter with a question and a comment. My reply was just a bit long for twitter, so I thought I'd answer it here.

Going to build my brother in law a Stella. Have you played with diode pairs or bridge between trim -> level or trim -> ground?
