Here it is folks, my 5E3 Deluxe Tweed amp! Had to tweak a couple of things, but overall very pleased with the result.

Everything dialed in to spec really nicely. A couple of changes made thanks to the talent and guidance from a few of the excellent electronics forums.

Here’s a shot of my work before two small wiring changes. I love this amp circuit, ┬áit’s just great. Smooth, raw, mellow, aggressive, compressed, sustain for days, whatever. It’s hard to not get a good sound out of this circuit. Disregard the alligator clips on the speaker, that was just for testing. It now has a RED short soldered speaker wire, because who has red? And notice the 14 g AC wire, who has that? Now I have to break in the Weber speaker. I have a trick for that, stay tuned. Plus, I will add some video once I get my Canon working. But that’s another project.
