Let’s keep this thread positive and about this cracking amp not about any other grumbles or noises

How does it take fuzz Sean? Bet it sounds glorious

Everything I’ve put into it so far has sounded great.
Really impressed.
We opted for a negative feedback mod which is activated by the tone pot.
It’s a pull up/ push down pot.
Kinda switches between the difference with the 5F11 circuit it’s built on and a more raunchy tweed deluxe 5E3.

For the real nerdy geeks like me 😂 the amps equipped with an early 60s long black plate Raytheon in V1, a pre war long smooth plate EI in the PI.
Power section is late 40s smoked glass military RCA 6v6gt’s and a 6087 GE brown base rectifier.
She sounds goooood!
