Hi Mike,
Just trying to answer your questions. No need to be like that about things. You seem to be touchy.

So, I'll only correct when I see misconceptions, how's that?

-Chris

The PCBs are designed by me.There are 3 PCBs in total.They are:PCB for the Preamplifier using vacuum tube ECC88. The second is PCB for the power supply with high voltage and relay controll. The third PCB is for the LM4766 as power amplifier.

Thanks Luck. Very nice website. I wish I could read your language.

Look, Im not expert. So I'll leve it there, ok?

Rgds,
Mike.

PS: Nice amp Luck! I love it and I'd love to hear it, bet it sounds nice.

Most guitarists love the sound of valves.
Its due to the warm sound of the distortion they give.

I use a valve mixer for my disco and also for my guitar and it sounds great.

I would recommend visiting a guitar shop and have a listen to a semiconductor amp then listen to a valve amp. Teh valve amp wins every time.

Yes, because a guitar amp does not need to reproduce a recording as accurately as possible. It clearly belongs to the creative process, so most of the time has to be appealing rather than truthful.

So should a hybrid amplifier sound accurate or appealing? In other words, how much should it sound like a typical tube amp?

Well, here we go again towards the famous Niceness Knob© that makes the sound adjustable from typical solid state to typical tube according to everybody's own taste.
