@DD2016, thanks for the kind words. The tweed Bassman and Deluxe I built a few years ago also have the 1W PRP metal film resistors. They're quiet, and (just in my opinion), they flat out sound better than carbon comps or carbon films. I know it's all subjective though, so maybe others might listen my sound clips and not like them. I'm cool with that. The baffleboard in this one is a high quality 3/8" void-free plywood. It isn't Baltic birch because my cabinet builder said it's hard to find in under 1/2" thickness. No complaints, I'm loving this amp as it is.
