    I found out a friend plays guitar, so I threw one of these together with some spare parts I had. Here's a link with the pics and a schematic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157624803754413/

    Sounds good, the stock schematic only biases the 50L6 at around 4.5 watts and the data sheet says the max is 10 watts with that tube. I lowered the cathode resistor a little and it sounds great, but if someone else builds this maybe try a 75R cathode resistor or something and see how it sounds biased a little hotter.
