Just finished up a little re-work job. This amp started life as a Fender PA 135, and at some point was converted into another amp by someone. Their idea was apparently that it'd be half 2203, half AB165 but thats not a real possibility and the implementation was poor regardless so it came to me to turn the ship around. Owner decided he really just wanted something plexi-like so we went in that direction, but expanded it to take advantage of one of the extra preamp tube sockets (it had six). Its basically a combined amp that has a 1987/1959 (lead) preamp as well as a JTM45/1986/1992 (bass) preamp. I was trying to utilize the holes that already existed in the chassis, so I went with one linked input for the whole thing, with blend-able volume controls for each channel. LarMar master volume per the customer's request. Its not the prettiest guts ive ever put forth but was trying to maximize use of what was already there.

MK1-very non-professional
Here is my first attempt at a tonebender. I got lucky as it sounded pretty good right away. I ended up lowering the output resistor by half as I had to crank the volume for unity with my telecaster. Looking at the beautiful work I see in this forum I am a little humbled but thought I'd share anyway. I have not decided on any artwork or labels but the window lights up when you engage the pedal!

Just finished this fuzzface this morning. It used to be a silicon Dunlop reissue before I gutted it.

Thanks, Lee. I lucked out getting hold of those transistors. I have a white dot sunface and wondered what the red dots sounded like. It seems like all the vintage fuzzfaces I see have red dots. Anyway, this one sounds great -- a bit thicker than the sunface but still cleans up nicely. I wouldn't be too cut up now if I suddenly had to sell my sunface.
