A book and a Berkshire website hack
I just got this bad boy today. I'm talking about the book, not the Vox amp. The author Peter Bevelin also wrote the excellent "Seeking Wisdom", so I have pretty high hopes for this book. "A Few Lessons for Investors and Managers" is a condensed easy-to-read essay version spanning all of Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway annual letters as well ask BRK's "Owners Manual".
I would have posted a link to the Owners Manual PDF, but it appears that Berkshire's website has been hacked.
The Vox is about 10 years old. It is solid state with a pretty decent tremelo section built in. I've always been a tube purist, but a while back for fun, I put my D*A*M Red Rooster
in front of it. I had it pushing a mid 1960's 2x12 Fender Bandmaster cabinet. Clearly this 15 watt 8-inch solid state combo is not designed for that, but man! - that Red Rooster lit up the transistors in the Vox. Tons o' fuzzy distortion, plenty of volume. A good time was had by all.
Both books mentioned can be purchased here:
