Looks like quality stuff, valve rectifier, decent looking components.

How's it sound?

the sound is "BIG".

very "in yer face" kinda vibe (w/ westone humbuckers)

the recter is SS, btw.......that black tube you're seeing is (apparently) a reverb driver...(a 6V6 :monkey: )....but i've yet to get schematics to prove that.....

it runs @ 100 or 60 watts. the 60 watt setting still sounds twin like, but not so overbearing.

Looks good. Any chance of posting a few sound clips? We're musicians after all no? (Or at least we pretend to be).

Love your signature by the way.
