sterling slant front 4x12 EBay ?????

Is this a Sterling imports 4x12 from the 80s? and would it be worth a best offer of maybe 225gbp and then the legends removed and my 4 purple backs loaded in??? I presume the legends are not up to snuff. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HI-WATT-l-a-4x12-cab-Original-not-a-reissue-1980s-Rare-slanted-front-/...

Large can electrolytics

Hi, My dad was telling me there appears to be a shortage of 220uF 385V electolytics over hear in Europe, none of the usual suppliers have any, although it is possible that The British Vintage Wireless Society have ordered a bulk quantity via Audiocap.co.uk.

What is the situation over the pond??

My new album ......More Than Nothing

Hi folks, I hope you all wont mind if I give a shameless but humble shout here to my newly released first album.
