    Very clean build I'm sure you're enjoying it too. Which Legend speaker did you use?

    The 1228k. I picked it up at a swap for $40.

    I've already "sold" (traded for stuff) this one. This way I get to build another! I don't know where I'm going to get as good of a speaker for that price.

    I think that the PT was overkill. I think I could have used a smaller one but I don't have enough experience to be sure. If anyone has any better suggestions, let me know. I plan on building another one.

    I probably could have used this. https://www.tubesandmore.com/product...-0-325-v-70-ma

    I was posting pics for another project and realized that I never posted pictures of the finished product. The amp is covered in blue canvas contact cemented to the wood, then sprayed with shellac.

    I don't know why it put the picture sideways.

    When I click on the picture twice it turns it the right way up.
