    I think it was the look of the amp with the "dashboard lights" that caught my eye at first, then it was the circuit layout.
    I'm always looking for ways to do point to point builds to show others there are cheaper ways to build amps
    A few tag strips at a couple of bucks each and to amp is super quiet.

    It sounds like a supro/Valco.
    The amps PT is a little under sized, which is a good thing.
    It's very clean with a touch of hair to "8" on the volume and is a comfortable volume.
    At "10" it sounds great, nice breakup and loud enough to be miked for a gig.
    The speaker is possibly only rate at 20w
