Hello everyone from Northwestern Ontario.

Opened it up, reading over the instructions.

Deciding what configuration I will build. Head & cab, combo?

Likely build a combo.

I have a WGS Blackhawk Alnico speaker coming. I will see how it sounds with that. Speakers I also have to try, Eminence Red White & Blues, Celestion Greenback, Celestion Vintage 30.


We will see what it likes. :D

You picked a good one :!: The head version is a little more difficult because of the tube location as some of the socket locations are under the back edge of the board. If you got the combo version, it's pretty easy to convert, socket mounting screws are tapped and all you have to do is drill the actual socket openings.

Looks good, I can't see it in your final photo, is the blue jumper there between eyelets 3 and 2 on the Bass control? and thanks for the gut shot , always good to see other people's wiring style. Always looking to improve mine :!:

Good eyes.

I just took the pliers & bent pin2 over to touch pin3, so when I soldered the wire on, all in joined together.
