Yeah AndrewT - well, I'm not technical nor designer. Just like to know how to handle audio and solder and screws. Follow some rules and just turned on the amp.. Heats much but works very well. Pat Metheny's guitar sounds better and interpretations of Mike Oldfield or Vollenweider are more vivid. Very good. I hope to continue working in Brazil have much heat.

Thank you for acknowledging those people who helped you with your build - this community cannot survive without the free interchange of ideas and assistance to those whom are interested in learning through DIY.

Please honor them by helping another who would like to build an amp of his own!

6L6 Thanks for helping me get my F5 build going. I keep coming back to this post and the pictures when I am puzzled on the details. I have most of the parts - ready to start the physical chassis stuff. DIY Store 4U Deluxe chassis is nice - wish they nicer feet. Cheap plastic - any ideas for decent chassis feet?

I have started to slide down a very slippery slope. B1 boards on the way. Pearl 2 boards on the way. My 30 year old Yamaha turntable is not nice enough (according to my wife) to bring into the living room - had to upgrade to a Rega RP1 with the Performance Pack.

Lol, yes, the feet are awful. I have no good suggestions, unfortunately...

You are going to do a Pearl! That's awesome. You will want to get a good cartridge next, methinks.
