I gotta make me a gainclone.... lol How essential are fuses and filter caps? I am GOING to (don't argue with me please) build this into a TINY case with really small heatsink and fairly low rails.. (about +-16v I think) with the transformer exernal, the bridge will however be internal, and I am not sure if I will have enough space for caps and fuses... lol perhaps I should just scrap the volume control and mount the fuse holders on the front of the case.. lol anyway... keep up the good work timmy... tell us when its finished..

If you use a torroidal transformer in a square box, you'll have heaps of room for your fuses and bridge!

If that's something that you bought, I would be very surprised if it hasn't already got it's own fuses(s)!
