Reproduced from: Builder’s Profile: Fil from SoloDallas
I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Filippo Olivieri the man behind all the stuff coming out of SoloDallas. Fil is a fun guy to talk to and one heck of a guitarist! He’s also extremely busy! Hope you enjoy this Builder’s Profile! (more…)
A great listen!
Ken Schaffer talks to Mick Marcellino and Jeff Bober about his many adventures inside and outside the music industry.
Sit back, relax and enjoy.
The Black Flag JTM50 is a rather rare and coveted after amplifier made by Marshal between 1966 and 1967.

In these two+ years here in the US I (we) have worked so hard that I can hardly believe it. I forget how many hours a-day; every day, on Saturdays, Sundays included, non-stop. Hectically. Then I’d take off for a while – but could never not-think about SoloDallas stuff. Just got to do it.
