    Just finished this little monster. 03BCC9BF-1A22-4632-B3F5-76AFD5A925B8.jpeg
    Preamp is inspired by the Matchless Spitfire but, this being that this is the 4th amp I’ve built with the same preamp, I have done a few tweaks that have boosted the gain a bit, tightened up the lows when dimed, and added a nice chimey snarl to the “cleans”.

    This one has a pair of 6AQ5’s in push/pull with a LTP phase inverter.

    Comes in at 9-1/2 watts and with the efficient speaker, it is quite loud.

    The switch for the NFB seems like a cool option. And I love the western tolex. Congrats!
