Meet Paul.

I picked this old boy up at Songbird a while back. A nifty little tube amp that is suitcase size. This means that Merle can tour on a bus. Or in taxi. Or with a shopping cart, leaving, as a bonus, extra room for a cooler. Good news!

"Paul" came with a replacement speaker and extra tubes. Oh boy. It sounds really fine, like an old warm crackling radio. It will be useless if I play with a drummer or other loud musicians but will be way cool for solo shows and recording.

Since it has no reverb I have hooked up an old Univox reverb unit which, handily, fits in my back-pack. So let me know if you want Merle to play your next party. I have a bus pass and if you draw me a map and keep me in whiskey, I can turn your next shindig into something to remember. Even if I forget about what happens.

Looking forward to the next show and hopefully will begin recording soon. In the meantime, please check out my brand new MySpace thing. There are some songs and photos and we promise more fun to come. Bye bye for now. Check out the MerleSpace.
