    Interesting use of radial bypass caps; unconventional for hand-wired amps.

    A little hodge-podge-y (which doesn't bother me per se); I imagine it sounds very good and looks like a million $s.
    Can you show a pic of the inner tube socket lead dress...for the hardcore voyeurs?
    Thanks for sharing!

    No problem. I dont own the amp just had a guitar buddy that won it at a festival a couple of years ago. Its heavy and a good sounding amp but too rich for my blood. I always like to see pics of the custom stuff myself. Check out the fan on the tubes.

    For the money they're asking for them, they better be works of art!

    Meh. If you want to see a real work of art, look inside a Dave Reeves era Hiwatt.

    Cool! The Merlin Blencowe school of running heaters across tube sockets.
    Like it :)
    Thank you for taking the time to do it.
    Won it? Awesome!

    Work of art? Take a look at one of the Trainwreck circuits.

    Shortly before his death, Harry Joyce, the man responsible for wiring the original Hiwatts, made a few amps under his own name. Here is a chassis shot of one. British Mil-spec wiring at it's best

    My first thought was an amp built out of parts laying around the bench, some from Radio Shack and stuf pulled from VCRs.:lol:

    But it is hand wired.
