hit me at tombukovac@gmail.com



interesting side note...
the session rig case that is shown in the pics at the beginning is still sitting in my garage...
it's actually a really nice case...kind of an odd interior configuration i will admit, but i remember my cartage guy Richie (who has been with me pretty much since the beginning and is rarely impressed by ANYTHING) commenting on what a nice case that was

anyway if anyone wants that it's yours for 300.00 cash

on that note....the tall grey session amp rack case that is featured in my rig rundown (rundown rig) video is also available for 300.00....that is the original head rack case that i used on A MILLION sessions...yeah, it's a little wobbly but it could be fixed up easy...might have a slight beer smell
