Will’s SE-5a combo

“I was playing through the SE-5a last night. I’ve started playing quite a lot now as I actually have a gig looming (first for 15 years). I’m getting married next year and me and some old band mates are regrouping to make a row. It was all the excuse I needed to spend silly money …

Peter’s pine-box SE-5a

“Amp is all built and sounds great. I’m using it through a 2×12 Basson cab loaded with OEM Eminence speakers, and there is loads of top end available – a Telecaster bridge pickup requires the treble to be turned down a lot :). “I put the case into an 18mm pine box finished with Danish …

Kare’s modded SE-5a

“This is my SE-5a with a cab from Chris Uff. Lovely handwork. Switch on right side is a fat switch (1uF and 22uF caps), the mini toggle by the middle, is, fittingly enough, the tone stack bypass. No problem with space, and I only needed to drill through the front plate, as the chassis has …
