just finished it and it sounds great. Would not mind a little more headroom. Someone told to try a 6SN7. If I did use one 6SN7 would it be better in V1 or V2? Anybody with experience on this?

I'd guess that it would be better in V1. Would love to see a pic of the build

Probably the most toneful 3 dimensional sound amp I've ever owned was a Alessandro Redbone Special. It used 3 6SN7 pres and I'm convinced that those tubes were what made the sounds so unique... like a idiot, I sold it and now with his high end client list his prices have gone through the roof and I cannot afford to replace it:( it was quite an amp though...little sucker with big tone and volume:)

Nice project....was this a kit or did you gather up the parts yourself? I haven't done any amp building for a while, but thinking that I should dip my foot into the pool again.
