    Hello all, This would be my first amp build and I am looking build a AB763 style head out of this eyelet board designed by Rob Robinette.
    I am looking to make this "Blackvibe" into a head that has an effect loop. Ideally it will have a transformer that can switch between 4/8/16 ohms. I figure I'll use Classictone transformers unless someone recommends others, but, I don't think I want to spring for a Mercury Magnetics.

    Layout - https://robrobinette.com/images/Guitar/AB763_Models/RR763_BLACKVIBE/RR763_BLACKVIBE_Layout.pdf

    Would this be a good output transformer http://www.classictone.net/40-18006.html

    Where would I integrate/(wire) the effects loop?

    Has anyone tried the Metropolis Zero Loss loop in their build? https://store.metropoulos.net/products/zero-loss-fx-loop-kit

    Thank you in advance.

    That OT will work great in a 6L6 output stage. The Metro Loop is a great unit with an excellent reputation in the Marshall world. I have no experience installing one in the AB763 circuit so i'm afraid that I can't be of much help with that.
