Default 6v6 push pull guitar amp schematic sought

could somebody please point me into the direction of a guitar amp that uses push pull or parallel push pull 6v6 in cathode bias. Any leads would be great.

Check out the old Tweed Fender Deluxe schematic it has that sort of circuit. I believe it's the 5E3 version. It's very simple, cathode bias push pull with 6V6's and two preamp tubes..

The link above is excellent, but I noticed if is missing several models from key companies.

Another good site is
Schematic Heaven

If your looking for outstanding simple vintage flavor, The Fender Deluxe 5E3 is one of the most popular PP 6V6 amps these days.

There are countless sources for reproduction chassis, cabinets and every key part needed. It can easily be done fairly cost effectively.
Best of all, they sound fantastic.

Here are more details on the Narrow Panel Tweed

Enjoy

The old Fender amp designs are amazing in that it would be about impossible to build an amp using fewer parts. I think that their simplicity is what contributes to their nice sound. They don't try to do too much so what they do they do well.

I'll put my vote in for the old Fender 6V6 PP circuits. I cloned the Deluxe for a small amp, it's hands down the best sounding little amp I have.

Not for very long with reissue 6V6's.

Most NOS RCA's can take that though. But 350-360V max is best.

Cheers!

Also they do sound better at 360V-380V than at 420V.

ok so 350 im guessing would be pretty sweet.
To run a pair of these in push pull i'd need roughly an 8k tranny yeh?

i'd be looking at an actual load of 2k on each plate yes?
