Default New to Forum, love 2A3's, built a couple of amps

Have built a couple of amps and followed this forum for ideas, finally signed up. My favorite schematics are from JE Labs. Have some photos of my projects at http://oldheadphones.com on the Tube Amp Projects page.
Got started by restoring vintage tube radios and building crystal radios. Just finished building a guitar amp from a friend, found the Fender schematic at schematic heaven. I am also an avid swimmer, hence the handle.

Used a couple of vintage transformers on this one.

Welcome to the forum...

Your amp looks good.

I'm hoping i like 2A3 -- just building one up (6B4FD actually)... and i used to swim (i still should, but...), butterfly was my thing.
