    I lived in SoCa for the first 40yrs of my life and experienced a few earth quakes. I never personally knew anyone who had been injured by one, so consequently I was never really afraid of them.

    It's just a little smaller than the one in my amp built from an old recorder. That one sounds great, but it's more like a Champ. I was hoping to build something a bit like a Deluxe.

    Still worried about the OT. It's very small physically. The primary winding measures 517 ohms and the secondary .5 ohms. Here is a picture of it with a nickel laying on top.

    Ok now I'm confused. I thought the issue was having to few heater filaments, causing the filament voltage to be in excess of 6.3v:confused:

    So would I be wrong to think that the heater load from 6, 6v tubes would be equal to 3, 12v tubes? I realise that we run them at 6v, but there are two heaters ea. right?

    What about a 6x4 My Champ-ish home made amp uses a 6x4 rectifier, and I have spares. How difficult is it to implement dual rectifiers, switchable?

    The plan is to use just the transformers, not the speaker, chassis or any of the old circuit. I thought I'd start with a 5E3 deluxe-ish circuit, then tweak if needed. I guess now I need to figure out...

    well sure, but I'm not just plugging a guitar signal into the radio. About all that would be the same is 2 6v6's and cathode bias.

    can I use this OT?

    I've got this old radio. I was thinking I would use the transformers in a guitar amp build. I've built a couple of small amps, but I didn't really design them, and there is so much that I don't know....

    Not the tuners, the trem stabilizer. It makes the guitar feel and sound more like a fixed bridge, while still allowing you to pull up on the bar.
