THE STANDEL STORY

The "Butcher Paper" List

Bob maintained a list of his early orders on a large piece of "butcher paper" which he hung on his garage wall where he built the amps. The following is a recreation of that list. It includes amp model, serial number, date of manufacture and original owner. We added the "current owner" column.

If you happen to be fortunate enough to own an original 25L15 and would like for your name to appear as current owner (or to be removed), please your request and we will happily add you to the list.
