    Greetings to all, I am here to show you my new build. The circuit is mostly based on the schematic of the DC-30 from the year 1994 but I modified certain parts of the circuit, on the channel of the EF86 I took ideas from the Ceriatone Brulee Lunchbox and the power section I took from the Mojotone NC3015 and finally the transformers that I used are from Marshall Style 18 watt from Classictone.

    Looks like you went with the Hammond chassis. They look good, but I dislike the attachment of the cage to the chassis. There’s not enough space to place a rivnut or nutsert. I see you tapped and screwed yours together. I did the same but wish they would make the flaps a little longer on the cage to accommodate other fastener options for better durability.

    Overall, killer looking build!

    Nice. An A-B switch out front and you got it made. Separate FX loops is a nice touch. Lots of possibilities.
