Hey all, Wanted to share my second build. At first I wasn't going to post anything about it because I'm so embarrassed about how my chassis turned out - it was my first time attempting to bend a chassis (no metal brake) and lets just say its very ugly but functional. I used a lot of shielding tape to cover gaps on the sides and around some of the tube sockets where there were gaps. Also, wish I had bought a larger step-bit rather than using a punch on the chassis. All that aside, the build went really smooth. I went for an AA1164 as a step up in the learning process from the 5E3 that I finished last November. The only real problems I encountered were easily figured out, i.e. there are so many more parts on the board that I mis-located about 3 components along the way but figured it out almost immediately (when I realized something else was supposed to be in that space); the other issue was I didn't build the sides very high on the chassis so I wired the pot lugs facing toward the bottom of the chassis (while looking into it) - the lugs didn't make contact with the chassis but I put a couple layers of electrical tape near the lugs as an added barrier. I absolutely love the sound of it. I'm currently running through a 12" Texas Heat - I really like it but I think I'm going to hook it up to a couple different speakers. Any suggestions for 12" that work well with the Princeton? I'm going to plug the GA-SC64 that I have in my DRRI to test that out tonight. The only real concern is that the reverb does add some noise. Between about 1 to 3 on the reverb dial, it's dead quiet, by 4 it's pretty noticeable and then just gets louder. Noise is obviously to be expected as it's adding gain but I was reading that some folks try different 12ax7's in there to see if you can get one that's a bit quieter. For bedroom levels, I've been liking my reverb up a bit near 4, so the noise is just loud enough to be a bit annoying. Anyone have any experience with tube rolling these or do I just accept it? Here are some (mostly poor) photos of the build: Oh, in case anyone is wondering, the little face on the faceplate is supposed to be an ogre. My wife always calls me an ogre because I manage to step on things (toys, shoes) that aren't even in the way and ogre my way through the house.
