It’s been several years since I built an amp from scratch and decided on a simple, low power and volume, classic. The only mods I plan to do is to add a Framus mid control and omit the tone control, for now. I want to see what the high end response is without the 5F2A tone control and possibly add it, or a simpler treble roll off circuit. Since being stuck at home, a 5W amp seems like the perfect thing for both low volume playing and to keep my mind busy. All parts purchased and on there way to me. I thought it’d be fun to do a little diary on the build to document all the challenges and successes. More than just a pile o’ parts. Here’s the first bit of real progress. I measured the components and drafted the board in ACAD, printed to scale to get the template for drilling for eyelets. I could of bought one of the board options from mojotone but wanted to do it myself.
