Prototype Amp 10w SE

Hey guys,
Next Poll
Wires to side of preamp (on top of the board)
or wires under the preamp turret. Currently using Solid core so it's a bit of a b*tch to fold but it can be done.

Haha thanks! The knobs are actually quite spaced. Just using the standard dumble type knob (29mm) in the template but I don't think I'll be using these knobs.😆

Both look good... But I voted option 2. Had to load this page in desktop mode, my phone browser truncated the pics

Hi All,

Regarding reverb placement on an SE amp, Since it's a high gain amp, i'm thinking of adding a simple reverb circuit just after the preamp and before the power tube.
Has anyone added reverb just after the MV and before the power? I'm thinking of using robinette's two tube circuit tapped into the B+ connected to the last preamp tube. Any thoughts on these?

Hey guys, Thanks for the vote,

I went ahead with option 2.
This weekend parts arrived so I processed the chassis, board and mounted the parts (without solder) this sunday.
I also recently just got a solid core wire. Now the question is, 1. should I hook the preamp wires under the turret or 2. to the side of the turret vintage style.

Option 1

Option 2

Rest of the process below. Old phone sorry:

Perhaps an FX loop would be more flexible ?

Decided to add both.

I've been looking into this stuff today, a person suggested to use a dual triode for my next build to make up for the missing inverter.. Add depth control and presence etc.

I prefer FX loops pre master volume. It keeps the amp quieter at lower volumes and makes using looper/ drum pedals easier as you control their output along with the guitar signal.
