ValveTech Amps - Is Rob still doing upgrades?

Question

I have an older version of the VAC 22 that's never been upgraded.  I see that the ValveTech website is no longer supported and Rob last visited here about 2 years ago.

I'd like to have the upgrades done, but I can't find contact info.  Anyone know if Rob is still doing these?

Thanks

He is enjoying life at the moment, but you can Facebook him if you do that. I'm sure he will upgrade it for you, IMHO worth every penny. I've played the newest upgrade and you won't be sorry.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Nope, can't do that. Was sort of curt, but, then again, so am I.

upgrade?  what upgrade?   can I download it off the internet?    😜 ha.   

I always thought Rob would spit on mine if I shipped it in for an upgrade, since I didn't take it on tour after I bought it.  It was too big to fit in the car.

Recently (has to be real recently) the website is gone. 

I have RIchF's VAC25 and it's fantastic... took me a bit to get used to the amp. But it's fantastic. 

I think we are heading to a closing time of the golden age of guitars and amps.... all the people with disposable income are younger and not buying guitars n amps... and who's gonna be the next valvetech amp builder? Thankfully, there are more than enough amps out there for me and the next full generation, as far as I can tell. 

To round this out, I think this shrinking market makes the Shishkov model of guitar building a strong one.
