“I reckoned that it was about time that I let you know how I got on with my SE-5a build. Pretty well as it happens! It was the first amp that I’ve built since 1982 when I made a Crimson Elektric Hi-Fi amp – but this was much more fun! Oh, and it worked 1st time. I love the low-noise (hiss) from this amp even when it’s cranked.
“You may remember that I badgered you for the plexi panels because I was after the ‘Marshall’ look. This is because I had just finished the restoration of a 1969 4×12 cab which the previous owner had cut in two to make two 2×12 cabs! The Ginetta badge is from an old sports car that I nearly restored – but that’s another story!”
