    Here is a circuit I designed, I call it the “Fullerwell”. It’s an 18 watt amp, basically a 5E3 preamp with cathodyne phase inverter mated to a Marshall model 1974 power amp. Built it in a 1x12 with a Jensen P12R but I’m sure a greenback would sound good too.

    Do you have the info in a format that's a little easier to see than in the video? And let's hear it!

    Here is a clip of how it sounds on the British channel with a Mullard CV4004 in the first preamp socket:

    I have that in a PDF version of the Powerpoint slides ... let me see if I can upload a PDF, it's 50 slides... Well I guess not the website informs me "The Uploaded File is too large."

    Would it show up better if you set the youtube on "Full Screen" mode? Each slide has a pause for a couple of seconds so you could just press pause in YouTube before each transition, perhaps?

    In the slides there are a few insignificant errata, here are a few I know of and I'd appreciate it if anyone spots something that looks off just let me know, thanks in advance.
    Errata:
    1) slides 5&6, I didn't have all of the necessary KiCad libraries so some of the switches may look odd or oddly wired in this schematic, just refer to the wiring diagrams, those are correct for the switches.
    2) slides 5&6, same as previous for the transformers -- they may look funny here because I cobbled them together from other transformer symbols in KiCad. I used the Heyboers listed on slides 8 and 16.
    3) slides 5&6, same as previous for the rectifier tube. I used 6CA4 (EZ81) as listed on slide 9.
    4) slide 19, R7 is listed as the PI tail load BUT R7 is actually the PI bias resistor.
    5) slide 19, R18 is listed as "V2 Master Volume Leak" but there is no such thing, R18 is the PI tail load resistor.
    6) slide 21, these photos were taken prior to some modifications I later made, slides 22 and 23 include the modifications (added a jumper on the B+ bus, the red wire; modified high side of R24, originally had it soldered before both voltage dropping resistors but it needed to be between them, so that's why there is a black jumper wire in there now).

    I think the rest is basically all OK...
