    Well, I want to learn more about amps and building them. I'm thinking about building a hoffman 6v6 plexi because they are very well explained, simple and they seen to be a nice platform to start experimenting with some mods.

    If you think differently, please let me know.

    I think my "final goal" will be this small plexi with a loop and a gain cascade mod. For now I have no idea how to do some sort of "one cable mod" in this amp because it has only one input. what are your thoughts???

    any inputs are welcome, and I'll try not to kill myself building this amp.

    Then you should have your head examined. You might wind up like me.

    I am building a 10w version , same preamp but 4 inputs . There are almost endless options. I am kind of dragging my feet , first I had a issue with my chassis and got that worked out because I have been trying do my layout on 11” x 15” paper.
