    I call it the "British Tweed".

    It is basically a hot roded Tweed Champ.
    *Volume
    *Tone
    *London Power Scaling MV
    *Standard Two Inputs but high gain -> an additional gain stage for British lead tones
    *5W, maybe 10W for more clean headroom
    *Single-ended Class A output
    *Cathode bias
    *Tube rectifier
    *Tweed combo w/ 8" or 10" (haven't decided) speaker.

    Who can build this for me?
    Questions or Comments?

    Thanks!

    Email Benjamin Fargen, he can build just about anything you want, and for a damn good price.

    I put a vintage 30 10" into an old webcor amp that was similar and it totally kicked. YMMV

    A lot of people disregard >12" speakers but I think that they can make an amp sound better. You moving less air so you can push them harder w/o bothering those nearby and start to feel the mids.

    what benefit would the tube rectifier give you in that set up?
