Roger Bentley’s modified SE-5a

“As promised, here are a couple of pics of the SE-5a in its cab. I have modded the amp further. Apart from the parallel 6L6 (which you can see in the socket – the EL84 and a spare 12AX7 are in holders inside the cab), I have fitted the tone-stack bypass switch for more gain and a pentode/triode switch at the back for a different tone at lower power.”

“Actually the wood of the cab and the glue has fully dried out now (it was only floorboard-grade yellow pine) and so will need a further sand and revarnish, as the finger joints are now very slightly proud, which is a quick and easy job. For any further cabs I will source some kiln-dried timber…”
