    a demonstration of my home made Lil Red Devil guitar amp, based on a highly modified Fender 5F2A. Features are: separate Gain and Volume controls on a dual concentric pot, custom Tone control with true high or low cut on a single 2 gang, center indent pot, NFB on/off switch, a Boost switch, a Bias switch to use either a 6V6 or a 6L6 output tube, and an added twin triode Tremolo with Speed and Depth controls on a dual concentric pot. all built into a 5x7x2 chassis, which was a real challenge.

    my next project is a vintage style "Deco" amp, and after that, im considering either a JCM800 using RobRobs 6V6 mods, or a Dumble style high gain amp.

    Well that is a fantastic demo of a fantastic amp. You kinda came in at the end of the project. Would you have a schematic you would be willing to share with us lesser abled builders.
