Just a quick update on this.
After an extended period of design and layout, the raffle amp to has really started to come together over the last little while.
Ben Sykora has almost completed his handcrafted cherry wood head cabinet for this project, and the last week or so, I've been getting started on the boards. You can find the current schematic, my working layout, and some build-log pics of the main board here on my blog.
The final design is pretty full featured for a lower power amp. Here's what it's packing:
2x6V6 power section
Three-band tone stack (James style B&T, Framus style mid)
Channel switching - clean and Dumble-style OD
Tremolo (solid state LFO)
Built-in reverb (LM386 driver, LND 150 initial recovery, tube based virtual earth / local feedback gain stage for mix back to dry)
Footswtiching for tremolo, reverb and OD
Chokeless capacitor multiplier based screen filter
DC heaters for preamp tubes
As before, each (tax-deductible for US residents) $25 donated to my Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Fundraising page counts as a ticket in the raffle, which will be held in June!
Please, even if you're not interested yourself, please consider sharing this link on your facebook page, and help this go viral... together we've already raised over $2200, but I'd really like to hit my target goal of raising $3000 this year for the LLS!
