Earlier yesterday I received a letter that mandated I close TST due to its status as a "non-essential" business. As many others know, Governor Tom Wolf of PA has closed golf courses state-wide, and now is closing all golf-related activity, despite courses in OH, NY, and WV remaining open so long as they follow the proper guidelines.
At midnight tonight, I'm shutting TST down.
This is a sad day, and I will look to re-open TST at some point in June or July when we finally get the all-clear.
In the meantime, please consider signing this petition:

LET PENNSYLVANIA GOLF
Thank you. I'll see y'all on the flip side.
Sorry but can’t let the vintage guitars things pass. You would get slapped in the face for saying such things in any circle I’ve ever seen. The 59 Stratocaster and old les Paul’s are some of the closest things to holy grails we have on this planet which is why original ones go for well over $10,000. As far as FX modeling, that stuff is for bedroom use and it’s allowing people to get crazy good simulated tones similar to playing tiger woods pga Tour. Feeling the air from a cranked tube amp is part of what allows for the electric guitar to be played the way it was intended. Similar to how golf clubs are getting where it’s almost too easy and too forgiving so people don’t bond as much with the spirit of the thing which is for both guitar playing and golfing that it’s extremely difficult because it’s not supposed to be that easy to achieve tuning fork, tenderloin pureness.
I'm sorry @colin007 . Amp modeling may work okay in the studio, but it still doesn't beat the sound of a tube amp because tone electrons flow better in a vacuum than they do in a crystalline lattice. It's a proven fact.
