Amp is pretty much run in now and is finally giving up the goods (particularly since 5000pF RS dogbone added on channel 1 pot :wink: )

Few more Pihers to comlete the set:

Hi Neil,
(it's Ray Domzalski here, otherwise known as smallbox around some of the various
amp forums. I don't post much-- I just read mainly, quite a lot actually...
I live close to Brian Wallace, and have had the pleasure of working on some stuff with him from time to time.)

I have to say that your "67" build is very true to vintage appearance-wise and, I'm certain,
must be the same in the sound category too. Simply beautiful work you have done there!
Btw, very nice looking arboretum in the background of several pictures there!

Anyway-
I just had to comment on your outstanding build!

Regards,
Ray D.

Lacing?

Yikes! This is the first build I've ever seen with lacing, congrats on the fine job.

Thanks.

The secondaries (oddly twisted blues) are squiffy because I keep hopping between the 400 and 490v B+ taps trying to decide what sounds best :roll:

I find it has nice thick sound but needs a pedal to get into the zone I like.

Superb build! That's the next one I plan to do, even though I have more parts ready for a block logo JTM45.

How would you describe 400 vs 490V tone- and feel-wise? I am trying to nail that mid- to late-67 Hendrix sound (i.e. Catfish Blues on the "Blues" CD).

Oh, and do you have any ghosting issues?

Higher voltage seems to have a little more headroom, maybe more girth

Actually the 400v is not bad at all, particularly as I want it to crunch and break up a bit more at lower volumes, it is breaking in now and getting more of the sound I want.

No ghosting issues (the caps are all 47uF RIFAs)

50mains/23screens/23 PI and 32/32 preamp so pretty similar to my 12series amps (sl lower PI as they are 48PI)

I want to build one of these as well (but with a steel chassis). pics shows that not only hendrix but also kossoff used these amps (2nd Free record sessions). I even have a pic where angus's amp may be a black flag 100w
