    looking in the loft and found this, the postage lable is dated 2014, actually forgot i had it, so another s/s to valve amp is in the work's, cab measure's 18" x 14" x 10",
    bought a few different sized and styled cab's at the same time from a music shop that was selling them as not working, so i got them cheap,

    if you check my post's i've converted a few s/s amp's to valve,
    i usually just use a 5c1 circuit, i like to keep it simple,

    That's a nice looking amp already.

    yes the cab is nice, i liked the odd shape of it, just noticed what look's like a mark on the side of it but it's just the reflection off my tele bridge with the flash of the camera,
