Default Violator Amp

Hi,

New here, I have been building this 50W guitar amp since July. What do you think. Has a few mods, dual bias, A/V meters, Can use EL34, 6550 & KT88's, Mercury OT.

Very nice craftsmanship.

Difficult to say much else without a schematic.

It looks great but Absurd amplification and Violator doesn't sound that good.

Well I think it does. Not trying to start an argument though. Especially if you gearing toward Rock and Roll guitarist. How much gain does the front end have?

Love the meters.

Looks more like a modified factorywired amp than DIY to me. No one solder pcbs like that at home.
