Derek's tall WF-55 combo
"All finished now and testing today. Sounds really good and warm even without the Celestion Gold 10 having worn in yet. Tried a number of guitars through it and all sound good with nice tonal variations. Attaching some pics of the combo in build."

Grahame's mahogany and modified WF-55
As well as adding a full tone stack, Grahame added the VVR (now called VCB) circuit to allow full distortion at lower room volume. As you can see it's quite tightly packed.

"The wood is meranti, an Asian mahogany, stained and then sealed with poly and top coated with acrylic urethane. (Same process as PRS use, I am building a replica, so this was practice.)"

Justin's WF with KT66
"Kit arrived yesterday, everything is perfect and I've managed to
get all the hardware mounted into the donor chassis. Because of the way I had to fit everything in, the input jack is quite far away from V1, so I had to add a wire running from the socket to the valve as well as the resistor, that was running next to the high voltage wires from the power transformer. Routing around the other side of the chassis helped!

"The switch, power socket and input jack are on the back, strategically fitted into the original cutouts."

Greg's WF with valve test clips
"Just finished the 4watt tweed sounds great. Here's a video I made with different tubes. I like the Tung-Sol 6v6 but they all sound good; just think the Tung-Sol has a creamy blues sound and using a 8in WGS ceramic speaker helps."
