    I think that looks great! As RG once said- it's a "soul transplant." I love it when people re-use an old solid state amp and make something new with it.

    Yeah, I guess that's one way of curing a dose of silicooties!

    Where did you get the PT, Antek? It looks kind of big for an 18 watter.

    "Enzo, I see that you replied parasitic oscillations. Is that a hypothesis? Or is that your amazing metal band I should check out?"

    Thanks all..
    I ordered the wrong antek at first.. got my notes messed up. building a 5E3 with that..

    that rg60 sold for 200.00.. now at 150.00.
    I can't get 40.00 off the head and speaker.. I think says it all about chinese solid state.. the cab is worth more than the guts apparently.

    It sounds fabulous.. pure tube tone.. no frills.. that's my preference for sure.

    Now for the Tweed!
