Jim’s scratch-built 18Wer

“Just for interest attached is my latest build using your parts – tag board, transformers and various other parts. It’s a scratch build that I was recommended to try called a Phat Ass 16 Or 26 dependent on the exact configuration. Using two EEC83 and a pair of EL84s.

“Pre-amp runs both sides of V1 in series, then a 5E3 Deluxe tone/volume into a fairly standard phase inverter and then a modded 18W cathode-biased power amp.

“I’m running it into a Fane 12in speaker that I’ve had waiting for a use for years mounted in a closed back cab. The amp sounds fantastic, and I’m afraid has supplanted all other amps in my affections.”
