    NICE. Could have been in the first thread, I had to start a 2nd one, the other maxed out.

    My recent point 2 point build. Matchless Spitfire build into a 60's Zenith chassis.

    Thanks for the kind words. It was a LOT of fun to build. I made it entirely out of spare parts from the Zenith and a Hammond H-AO-43 that I picked up on feeBay. Well, except for the Sozo's that were left over from a previous build. And oddly it the quietest amp I have owned in a while...home build or not.

    Dunno if anyone is going to "appreciate" these guts, but figured I'd throw a couple photos up anywho...

    I realized the last shot was not finished; I hadn't added the heater wires yet. Here's the amp (the last Encore with the chrome faceplate, BTW) fully wired. I have since cleaned up the tangled green ground wires:

    A home-built amp from the 40s or 50s.

    Heh, with the old parts in there, it might very well have been.

    It sounded pretty crappy originally, but with a re-cap, a re-tube, and mods where necessary, it's sweet. A 5E3 with less bass would be the closest thing. Not the best for cleans, but great for crunchy tones. And the total cost to me was around $120, including the amp and all of the parts. Not a bad deal.

    Also, I like the irony of something that looks like it belongs in a museum putting out some screaming rawk.:Devil

    Just took some new shots of my '73 Super Lead. I posted photos of this amp in the previous "guts appreciation" thread but I think these photos are better.
