Several TS'ers have these now, they sound very nice indeed.  He may actually have one or two left.  If you were interested I would e-mail him from his website

It is NEVER too late...    ;)

At some point this year I'll probably add a Tinybox / Littlebox to the arsensal.  Actually I'd like to have one of each.   :wink2:

well,
I bought my TS-2 late last year, and have been working with Ruel on getting it looking the way I saw it in my mind.
Thank you Ruel !
I just finished today.  It took a while to get all the new components together.
It was originally black face w/ a red body and black plastic knobs.
Started out like this >


I've only tested it at home with various mics, now I'm waiting to take it out to a show.
I also made a custom right angle DC connector, and the battery is a 12V / 9.8 Amp Li-Ion.

What do you think ?
a (re)Vamped edition...

Bump for old times sake.  I hope to run the TS-2 again in the near future.  Anyone else out there in TS land still have one?
