    Thanks for the kind words. I'll try and make some clips in a few days, when it's properly burnt in.

    Cold biased 6550, and 12AT7 phase inverter.

    This amp is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!!! The best 'West Coast' I have built or modded. Very tight and punchy bass, feedback event at low guitar volumes. I just can't stop playing it !!!
    I really have to make some clips, it sounds soooooo good !
