    So nicely done. I'm not skilled enough to do one clean like that, so I doubt I'll tackle the SLO.

    I always end up screwing things up when I go from 1987 to 2204 as it is. LOL

    Small needle nose pliers and a big magnifier was the only way I could do those small switches

    late to the party, but briefly had a jca 50w combo. it was only one or two components off from the slo schematic
    in my opinion, after some tweaks to the crunch channel that's where the magic is. stock there's a lot of signal dumped but the way i had it it was hot rod Plexi territory. i was even impressed by the build quality. jet city always seems to use huge transformers... my picovalve has enormous transformers for a little 5w single ended amp
