Definately not to show off my playing :rolleyes: , but rather to see what you guys think of the tone.

This amp started its life as a 76 non-master volume amp. I bought it last year at the Dallas guitar show and tried to give it some love. It had beenneglected and beat to crap to the point that the original PCB was thrashed. so out goes the PCB, and in goes some evil resister and cap stew.

Well, out with the wind and in with the soldering fumes bro. People like James Peters and Olaf have been great help in answering my retarded questions. I'm working on a hot rodded matchless now and getting custom transformer wound fron O/netics. Some of the best trannies available and a fraction of the MM's prices.

Sounds nice bro, love that mid clank mayhem!:cool: :dude
Actually it cleans up well. I have the same circuit in a homebrew with a low input jack and a bright swtich and its pretty sparkly clean.

I got a chance to play this amp on Saturday.
It smokes. Smokes hard enough that I tried very hard to get it away from Scott.

Another amp that smokes is Scott's proto amp he built.
Tell'em about that one Scott.

Thanks for the kind words Brian. Unfortunatly it doesn't smoke as much with me playing it as it did with you! You get some tones out of this thing that I didn't think were possible. You always seem to have a way to bring out the best in an amp(thats my halfa$$ed way of saying your playing rules). This one is very similar to the proto I built with just slighty different gain taper and the treble voiced a tad bit closer to the mid range. I can honestly say I like this one better than my original proto(red with tears and cigerette burns is pretty darn sexy), and I'll probably tweek the proto to be on par with the updates on this one.

Modded Marshall clips
well a schematic would be alot easier that me explaining everything. I reworked all 3 gain stages, the tonestack has been altered as well as the NFB loop and a depth control

ahhh, you are being too kind. I did come to the realization though that I am not digging my blackback cab as much as I like the Vintage 30 cabs I've been listening to at Charly's. I guess it's time to move on to a different cab.

I just started my hot rodded Matchless inspired project tonight and am making some pretty good progress. I will work on a board like the modded Marshall's this weekend and keep my eye out on a chassis to throw it in. I guess worst cas scenario, I could pick up a $200 bassman head/chassis and marshall OT. It would be ugly as hell, but would already have an extra preamp tube for an FX loop.
