Andy’s Tweed mini-stack

It’s amazing how a few cosmetic choices can give an amp a different character. Andy had a Tweed-covered speaker cabinet and decided to do a matching SE-5a head. So his front panel is cream-on-brown with cream chickenhead knobs instead of the SE-5a’s standard black and gold livery. It’s really effective – one of my own favourites, actually.

Andy’s an electronics engineer, and has uploaded a detailed blog of his SE-5a build: see Andy’s SE-5a Basic Kit build at It’s a “warts and all” review/blog, but I’m always happy for feedback that helps me improve the kits for future customers. But it’s also a VERY good illustration of how to cover a cabinet with tweed. Thanks for sharing, Andy.
