R.I.P. Rick Potter

Sad news this week as Mr. Rick Potter has passed on. Rick was highly regarded expert tube amp builder, repair artist, and wizard. Rick Potter is the "R.P." in my "RPM" amp. He was also a great guitar player who remained a working musician right up until he just couldn't physically do it any longer. I was lucky to have made friends with Rick over the last few years and I will miss him. The last we spoke, he was finishing up dialing in my amp after I had done some gig testing with it. Soon after, he officially retired from amp work. I guess I was lucky enough to get one of his very last pieces of work. Guys like Rick are something special. The absolute best in their fields, virtually unknown outside of their circle, but there's no doubt that his tone will live on for many more decades. Maybe forever.....
