I just saw that the thread I started while building my Tweed had a couple new posts (and great mod suggestions). I felt that it was worth noting that all the problems I had building the amp have been sorted out thanks mostly to Stephen's fantastic customer service.

I did end up modding the amp a bit. The coupling caps have been changed to .22uf, I added the smoothing resistor as well as the VRM I stopped short of removing C7. I tried it out without C7 and found that I like t better with C7 in place. It did tighten the sound up but I have a couple of other tighter amps if I want that sound.

The amp sounds great in every setting I've used it in from Jazz to 70's rock. I find myself bringing it to almost every gig. Since I've started using it I've been told many times that my sound is amazing, I don't get complimented as often on my playing but at least now people like my sound!

The speaker is a BBQ 12A125a I'm not sure how it stacks up against other speakers but to my ears it sounds good and fits the character of the amp well.

Jim. Thanks for the report. Glad to hear your tone is great. That's the least we can do. Hope you are inspired to make more amps!!

PS You mean .022uF I think?!
