Some changes from the stock build are the 6SN7 signal tube, the excessive use of film caps for power and coupling, and a pair of oversized chokes. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Default Mighty Midget

Even though I built this a while ago, I haven't really listened to it. I plugged it up a few days ago to some so-so speakers and it's been on non stop. It really sounds good to me. So glad I built it. It's Pete Millett's "Mighty Midget" SE 6T10 compactron tube amp.

Default I am new here, been lurking for a while...

This group is full of creative well informed people. Recently I was commissioned to make a "steam punk" blue tooth docking station. The client loved it and his father now wants one. So I figured I would post it here for review.
This was the first custom made amplifier I have done since thirty years ago when I made a few dozen guitar amps for spare money when I was a kid.
