There is nothing like saying "I built it myself".
RedRoo Kits was founded in 2018 by Phil Wait. Phil was winding down from from a long career in Medical Alarm Systems, having owned and directed the Vitalcall Medical Alarm business for many years until its sale to Chubb Electronic Security, and having spent the next 18 years continuing to manufacture Medical Alarm equipment in Sydney.
Forty years earlier, while staff engineer at Electronics Today International magazine (ETI), Phil developed and described many do-it-yourself electronic projects for home constructors, including a 140 Watt amplifier for guitarists that used four EL34 output tubes with 750 volts on the plates! Those were the days!
So, rather than retirement, getting involved in DIY projects again seemed like an obvious thing to do. So, why not another valve amplifier? Shortly after the RedRoo SE5 amplifier was born, and over the last couple of years the design has been refined to make it as easy as possible for DIY constructors.
The SE5 has proven extremely successful and reliable, with many great sounding amps built by people from all sorts of backgrounds. New projects in the pipeline include an RIAA pre-amp to go with the SE5, and a high performance guitar amplifier.
Phil is also Chair of the Australian industry association for Medical Alarms, is past President of the Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA), and has represented the interests of medical alarm providers and radiocommunications users on various Standards committee's. For downtime Phil races yachts, if you can call that relaxation!
