    It will be a good event, you should go if youre in the area. The organiser is a good egg.
    One of these days... I'm going to cut you into little pieces.

    Steve is a member here - he chooses not to post anymore.
    I understand he is now a Ming Da dealer.

    Hi Chris

    As you can see i have decided to start posting on AOS again. Prompted after seeing this post and the comments within. I am heartened by them. Yes indeed it is i who organised the said bake off. All AOS members are very welcome to attend and bring with them their bits and bobs. The last bake off was an absolute joy and i am really looking forward to NEBO 3. especially as we didn't get to listen to some rather tasty vintage amps last time as we ran out of time. Anyone wishing to know more can get in touch with me via AOS or previous attendees via my email or mobile number as included on previous posters.
    Yes indeed Chris, i am now officially ( as from october 1st) the agent for Ming Da valve amplifiers in the North East, however this has nothing whatsoever to do with the Bake off. I will in the fullness of time organise Ming Da musical evenings which is a totally seperate issue all together. I don't want to labour this point before i have had chance to communicate with Marco about advertising etc. There was two Ming Da products at the last bake off though i feel i have to clarify that they belonged to me and they were not there to promote MD's gear.

    The above Bake off will hopefully be as much fun as the previous two with some great music and hifi present. It's a great event with great folks so please do attend. there are plenty of nice places to stay close by so if you fancy travelling from further afield please do. You will be made most welcome. Please note that NEBO III will be about fun. There will be nothing on sale on the night except alcohol.

    Now that you're in the trade, we'll need to organise a trade account for you, which I can do as soon as you give me the name that you would like to trade under, which will be shown below your username of 'Floyddroid'.

    Anyway, good luck with your new commercial venture and with the forthcoming NEBO 3!
