Hey Andrew, are you thinking of tube design for AC2 maybe?


Definitely Ivan - tube all the way! I might use solid state in parts if there is a good reason for it but I really want the signal path to be all tube.

I'm still thinking about it, and maybe I'll go for a Fender Style clean kind of amp next.

Then I would really like to make a rack - separate preamp in one slot, with digital effects in the next slot then power amp (I'll just buy the digi effects for chorus reverb delay etc, not build it). I would like a power amp design that you can add or remove tubes to get the right volume as well. I'd also like 2 - 3 channels in the preamp for different voicings - clean, crunch & hi gain smile.gif

Lots of thoughts here, no firm conclusions yet!
