Well I got cold feet on my action and jacked the price up to a grand. Nobody bought it so it looks like I'm keeping it. Will be on the lookout for a pair of celestial blues or maybe something more exotic. Could see a d120 working good with my gold.

At least you didn't ask him for a one page schematic and he sold you an encyclopedia on tube amp building!

For the next step, it seems my amp is going visiting. It would be more fun for you if the speaker cab tagged along?

I can see it now, "Wanted 5W tube amp under $400" ... "Hey I have a 4000W PA you could have for $17,000!" :rofl:

Jansen 6/40 is up on trademe for 750. Get at me here to avoid fees etc. Great amp! just needs some twiddling with the tremolo to make it work correctly. Probably just a bad tube or bad biasing etc. Who knows! it works when you turn it on but quickly dies. It sounds good for a second though!

Done it! Got heaps of photos and drawing it 'professionally' now in Digikey Schematic. Hopefully you can answer a few questions i have. Hope to post things soon.
