I've ordered all the parts, except the PT and OT, got the main board today, looks good, thick.
Most of the caps and resistors should be here tomorrow from Mouser and the chassis on Monday.
I figured I could could get the chassis drilled, components sorted, jacks mounted, ect, and then add the tranny's last.
The tranny's are coming from Weber, which may be Weber or Heyboer (s?)
Of all the parts I had to order only two were backordered but they are available localy.
Time to get the iron warmed up, thars' gonna be a barbeque
The Superlite isn't going to get you lots of gain at low volume, you'll need a pedal.I'm thinking about doing this superlite build myself. I watched your video and noticed that with the gain all the way up there still wasn't much gain. I want something I can overdrive for some of the Ozzy stuff I do. Do you think I'd be better off waiting for the 5E3 based amp? Which one of those designs would I be better off with for dirtier sounds with the volume at REASONABLE levels? Any tube amps like this I can build that have an effects send/return? I had to sell all of my equipment 6 months ago due to an economic disaster I found myself in. I ended up without ANY guitar amps. I'm thinking this is a good way for me to go now. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
On another point. I'm trying to build this amp in the most economic way possible. Are there any alternatives to the output and power transformers that I could get cheaper off of ebay and save some money or should I bite the bullet and go with the webers? Thanks for the video and information. It was just what I was looking for.
