This is a small chronicle of my 3rd (Can't change the post title "3nd" it is!) amp build to date—well—4th I guess—Made 2 Champs at the same time followed by the sublime 5E3 RobRob Deluxe. That amp is freaking awesome—and I figured out how to make it sound like the Champ—well, pretty close—Champ is some kind of special to be honest. Princeton Reverb up next—and it's turning out a bit more complex than I might have expected—it's actually quite tight—chassis is stock size I believe, but no front bevel—I don't have a proper brake that's up to my standards—found a blank steel chassis on ebay that a guy out West is making—VERY nice. It's refreshing to work with steel. There's a reason that Fender put everything in a "tray" and hung it from the top of the cabinet—WAY simpler than what this is turning out to be—it will be fine—but I've decided to label all the leads since I will have to to mount the board in a way that I can't easily spot check it later....and it will be SO easy to mix things up. Yesterday, before drilling holes—I realized that the amp board will have to be "hung" from the "top". Kinda plays mind tricks on you—and I considered flipping everything—which actually wouldn't have solved anything and really the only way to have done this is to have flipped the turret board layout completely. Board was already built—and that would have been way harder to sort the wiring anyway.. I did take a second and look at the "tray" layout—but I prefer the controls at the bottom for whatever reason, visually. @robrob mentions someplace about upgrading the cap can to a 40/20/20/20 version? Is that worth considering? Was also curious about the RCAs—I'm just used to the audiofile route where everything is shielded from the chassis. Will there be a similar situation here with the OT and phase? Like when I built the 5E3? Can't predict which lead should go to which 6V6? Assuming yes?—noob style. Was likely going to put the heater wires in the chassis corner—proximity to reverb tank RCAs?? at the end of the run? Didn't think about that... Plan is to make a 2x10 speaker cab for this. I also have a Creamback 12" hanging around—was going to try that in the 5E3 at some point in the future. Maybe. Waiting on front and back panels before proceeding with the chassis—had a little fun with the nomenclature. And was liberal with my interpretations of how to hyphenate numbers.
