Anyone have any idea how to come up with something simple for a stereo amp head - perhaps super clean supro style maybe (master volume knob type).

3 or 4 knob type amp

no reverb, no effects loop, single channel - not dirty(5E3)

Inspiration from this..

Creation have come up with a stereo amp head. Single 6L6 each side..

I'm just wanting a clean platform with headroom - doesn't need to be loud. or break up.




I've considered trying to fit a 5E3 into a large chassis with 2 amp heads in it.. but every 5E3 circuit I can hear demo's of are all hairy tweed sounding and don't clean up at all.

I get that, good idea, but I'm trying to accomplish something that's at least slightly different either side.

Also - toobs..

the JC120 is bumhole with dirt pedals..

I've thought of this in the past when I was gonna go frfr, maybe find a HiFi power amp schematic?

5e3 has a really nice clean but only at the very start of the volume knob, anything over 2 and it’s starting to OD.
In saying that changing the NFB cleans it up a lot but makes it sound a little flat.
Great idea, do you still need a full set of transformers for each side?

I was planning something similar with Ryan at some stage in the past, there are some great old stereo valve amps and their schematics are available :)

I can send it in parts if you preferred?

any big differences to think about between a guitar amp and a Hifi amp?

I've seen heaps of 6L6 Stereo hifi schematics around. just not sure how they'd work with a guitar..

is it literally just changing the RCA/Banana plugs to TS

HiFi amp will just be clean AF through the volume range, otherwise it's similar parts etc...

Trace Elliot velocette was made in a stereo config. 2x15W, el84, hand wired. There was one one TM last week. Great amp.

i feel like i need to learn what would make it more "guitar amp-like" if I ever tried to convert one.

I should open up my Ryan custom chassis and see exactly what he did .. try replicate it on a smaller scale
