I learnt something very important with my Princeton build: I should have built a Deluxe. So rather than torture it with more mods, i'm hitting the reset button and starting a new build... employing all the I should have done this, I should have done that lessons I have learnt thus far. The plan: Tweed Bassman front end, Brown Deluxe style power section. Maybe SS/tube switchable rectification. First and foremost, I want a rough and ready rock amp (not a saggy slow blues amp) that can go toe to toe with a drummer. But I don't want an amp that is so loud it can blow out a candle from 10 feet away. Nor do I want a high gain amp - I'd rather step into that territory via pedals. I also need a reasonable clean tone, as I play a lot of rockabilly, reggae and surf. So that is my sought tone triangle: Sublime to Setzer to Surfaris... and Slayer via pedals. Am I asking too much from one amp? I don't think so: my 6G2 is oh so close to being all the amp I need... but if i'm going to upgrade all the trafos to Deluxe spec --> go back to the first sentence of this thread. It would also be nice to have a more flexible EQ, thus my desired integration of a 5F6A front end. So here's where i'm at so far. If you see any errors in this schematic, please point them out for me. And if you can suggest any improvements, modernisations, i'm all ears too.
