The body is made of MDF. Then glued over with oak veneer and painted with lacquer.

crown 810 its good.... i haven't saved up for a better amp tubes i mean....
works well though... good clear sound not stylish and fancy distortion but its baddass
its industrial so running in a house with 3 small full range boxes it never clips... ever
but i can also never get half its power...needs 15volt diver
thing never gets hot, never screws up, very protected...
it was 1 of 40 in a ballpark
i wanna use it one day for subs, not as though it can't run something

in my car
zapco 50C
such good car sq
run it 60% to 100% all day everyday
small amp but detailed
i can stand 50ft away crank it up and it sounds good

I'm using a 300B amp of my own design (see my website for details). It's still sitting in the living room in "DeathTrap" configuration - i.e. as a prototype with exposed wiring. The chassis is slowly coming together. I have one final round of painting left to go, then it's assembly time.

The attached shows the second-to-final configuration using ECC99 as the driver tube. I ended up using the 6N6P. JJ 300B running 400 V, 80~85 mA.
