Hello,

I'm new. :? I am deciding between the Tweed and the Tramp, or so I imagine. I play country, rockabilly, and jazz: more jazz than anything. I rarely use much distortion at all, just a little crunch in the attack from time to time, or a little texture with the jazzbox to give a little edge to quite a bassy tone.

So the question is, which amp would be better? I am thinking that if it is to be the Tweed, the 6L6 option might be preferable for more headroom, a little more "dimension" in the clean maybe, based on my experience with 6V6's vs. 6L6's. I don't currently have a 6L6 amp, and I'd like to, so I guess that might be coloring my thinking, perhaps wrongly.

So that's the goal: clean with headroom, an open clean sound, and sounding good with the treble killed (typically by the guitar tone control) for jazz. Distortion sounds are secondary.

Thanks very much for any help you can give.

P.S. I'll be making the head version.

Tramp!! Plus, you can pull the Bass control knob out for Fat (used to be called Tweed) or in for Thin (formerly 'Tude)), built in VRM, Volume and Gain and if you make the some of the mods listed in Tone Tweaking you have a large choice of tubes. I like the EL 34. See attached file. I think Cheops created it.

PS And it's a fairly simple build. :thumbsup: Download the Build manual, Schematic and Layout if you haven't already. If you tell Coco you can get the chassis drilled for head or Combo layout, too.
