Uncommon plate and screen voltages and the heater wiring...first time I see that scheme. Hmmm....only 5.5 volts on the cathode. Not much clean headroom. Strange. I was expecting to see the typical Champ schematic....but nope. Well, it seems the el84 sounds better with lower voltages than typical on the plate and screen. Interesting.
It was just an inexpensive video recorder outdoors.
A lot of people have pointed out the "odd" or "quirky" things in several of their schematics. But this amp kicks butt even though many don't think I am geting much over 3w instead of MODs advertized 5w.
It has a Black Face T&B circuit and an EL 84 output it is no Champ. I have scratch built several Champs and Princetons and none ever sounded as good as this amp does. This amp gets a great natural overdrive tone when pushed.
Thanks for asking.
