Iíve been busy and havenít posted much for a while but here are this winters projects. First was a single channel 6v6 amp based on the a Fender DLR built on a PR chassis with Bias modulating vibrato, LarMar Type II master volume with mid and feedback controls along with a mid boost. I build a bigger cab for it as I was toying with using a 15Ē speaker but settled on a WGS G12C which is a perfect match for the amp. Really sweet sounding








Next was a Deluxe Micro from Rob Robinettes Web site volume, tone and a MV using a 12AU7 for a power tube with a 5y3 rectifier and a 5751 for the preamp. Tried both a 12AY7 and a 12AX7 and found the 5751 to be a good compromise between clean and distorted. The 12AX7 was great for distortion while I felt the 12AY7 was pretty muddy. The amp has a bright switch as well and switches to change pre-amp gain and the feedback loop. I put it in a small cab with a WGS vintage 12Ē speaker. As a apartment or bedroom amp its very sweet, fairly clean until around 5 on the volumes after which it just gets a creamy tweed sounding distortion. My wife loves the sound levels. Played through my pedal board it is extremely versatile and runs supper quiet.

Any plans to sell either? What would the micro run as just a head?

Sweet! Did you build the cabinets? Is the Princeton chassis from a re-issue, and if so did you use the stock transformers?

Thanks for the complements thses we my 7th and 8th builds for amps. I don't plan on selling either but Robs plans for the micro deluxe can be found on line and is pretty easy to build, would be great as a head. I added the mods which make it a pretty versatile it's not a real clean amp much as its ancestor and if you put a 12ax7 in the preamp its gets even dirtier I play allot of blues and it sounds great for that.

I built both cabinets out of pine with dovetail joints.

Chassis was a PR I bought off E Bay and was cut for a regular PR power transformer which I got from Allen Amps a TP24 from upgrade for Champs and Princeton's fits the cutout but is about an inch deeper output was also a an Allen not sure what model I used. The power tyranny will support 6l6s but nothing sounds as creamy as 6v6s when you crank them.
