I posted a thread about three years ago putting in front of the group here an opportunity to help decide the fate of a very old Hohner solid state amp that had been given to me: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/hohner-hi-210r-help-me-decide-its-fate.530375/ Since I posted that, life got in the way as it is wont to do and it languished in my garage until last week when I finally decided to get off my duff and put a 5e3 circuit in the thing. It's built using the cabinet, speakers and chassis (gutted) of the original amp and sourced with parts I bought from various places. It's built with a Hoffman 5e3 turret board and uses his layout. I finished the build yesterday It sounds wonderful, all chimey and 3D shimmery when clean. I do have a problem with it though, but I'll pose that question tomorrow (I'm too tired to go much further tonight.) In the mean time, here are some pictures to enjoy, and a cheesy sound clip.
