Nice work Ty, the tele through the 18w sounded great. I have parts for the 18w that i never got around to doing anything with. Any chance of a schem? Thanks
Sorry, I haven't been here in a while and I didn't see this. Mine is just a stock 18 Watt Lite II with the extra gain stage like the one from Doug's Stout. IIRC my values for the extra triode are very similar to Doug's. I'm sure mine would be a bit quieter if I had built it as a higher gain amp from the start but I just crammed it in there. It gets somewhat noisy when cranked but it's also so loud at that volume that the noise floor is still way below the signal. The noise is coming from the preamp, plainly, as the power amp is totally quiet. So if I were starting over I'd probably just cop Doug's layout and go from that.
Glad you liked it.
