    Hey, what's "the twist?" Is it a 1x12"?

    Keep them photos coming, they almost make me feel like I'm making progress :)

    Now , that my arms are resting....

    I'll talk about the twist:
    -Switch to use or not the NFB (nothing revolutionay here)
    -Switch (On/Off/On) to have: Normal Tweed Princeton Tone Control / No Tone Control (alla Tweed Champ) / 120pF Treble bleeder Cap
    -SS rectifier (don't care about the new 5Y3GT that don't are real 5Y3GT)
    -1x10" Weber Alnico 10A125 GOLD!!! (traveling as we speak from USA to Valparaiso (Chile)
    -Maybe a Switch to change the BypassCathode Cap and Resistor (to test a "Marshall" sound...

    any new ideas are wellcome....

    more ideas,
    - switchable bypass cap on V2 for boost
    - Hammond 125ESE OT and bigger PT. Now you can make the cathode R of the powervalve switchable. 6v6, 6L6, El 34 what you like.
    The bigger OT can handle the more current of the 6L6, the 125ESE can handle the speaker mismatching (switch).

    The dimensions are: 40 cm wide x 45 cm high x 23 cm deep (do your math)
