    Going to build a SLO inspired amp. I want to put to rest in my mind if a viable inspired amp can be built that actually solves the issues I had. I will post my progress as time permits. I am not interested in a exact copy. There are guys that do that extremely well already. But, rather, intend to build what I feel will satisfy my taste. Whether I will be successful or fail miserably remains to be seen....

    I have ordered parts..... now the wait.....:hide

    I’m also very interested in your results as well. Be sure to post pics and sound clips when it’s done. :)

    No Carl! Don't do it! Who knows what deep dark and exciting tone cliff you may be jumping off!

    I'm in. Looking forward to progress reports and one [or more] of your demos.

    ^ This, especially on the relays. Oh, and a proper loop.

    This MIGHT be #5 or #6 on my ‘kit list’ after I start with the 5E3 in October.
