50C5 SE amp. First I ever built. Good for about 1W and maybe 250 to 10,000Hz - just radio parts, including the OPT. Line operated and no isolation of course, but it sounds good in its range.

Default Valco P-P

Guess I'll keep the ball rolling- This is my second attempt and current finished amp, based on a '40s PA design by Valco. Typical 6L6 PP. IIRC, the xformers are 30w Hammonds. Finished this one a couple years ago and still sounds pretty good, although there's some low level hum that still drives me nuts.

Shot of the back- 5 inputs, inverse fdbck switch, switched outlets. The chassis is done in black metallic, with light blue metallic sparkle that you only see when the light catches it, then a clearcoat over that.

All lit up like Christmas! The vol knob and top circle are EL panels. One step closer to high-tech, I included a delayed HV startup ckt that still works Thanks for letting me dust off the ol' amp and share! Who's next!?
