    Now if only they'd make a pre-blackface Twin/Showman OT, Something like the 45550 or 45268, ridiculously big as they are. Logically a single transformer with 4/8/16 taps?

    Kudos on your fine work...

    After DiodeGate I've gotten nervous. There are two 50u25 (50u50), two 25u25 and one 4u25 (4.7u50) on my main board that are not given a polarity in the schematic.

    After reading that page, part of me is tempted to try a quartet of 6V6's in a Showman design some time.

    Anyway. Other priorities.

    I'd describe it as 'optimistic'. The amp was about $400 new, which was fair for what it was: a decent 2x10 valve combo with some DIP IC's and no digital not even the reverb. These days about $200 to...
