This is Dave Hunter's design from his book "The Guitar Amp Handbook". "This is a true Class A amp. The base-design is built around a pair of 6v6 output tubes. The way these tubes are individually cathode-biased means you can use a wide range of output tube configurations. Both 6v6's for 8 watts, one 6v6 for 4 watts, a single 6L6 for 8 watts, a single EL34 or KT66 for about 9 or 10 watts, a single 6K6 for a soft 3 watts, and even more octal output tubes are compatible with this design. See the book for instructions and pics. Also a great book for beginners and amp building enthusiasts.

Fender 6G6-B Bassman
Fender Blonde 6G6-B Bassman build for a client. Chassis (zachmdhunter - eBay), faceplate (zachmdhunter - eBay), power transformer (Classic Tone 40-18005), output transformer (Classic Tone 40-18009), and choke (Classic Tone 40-18003) will be sourced outside of AES. This will be a "chassis only" build. Had to substitute 500V filter caps for the 600V's called for in the schemo as the 600s do not fit in the doghouse.

Amp is DOA, push the button, no power. The main fuse detects faulty so trying to find the 20mm x 6mm 1.4 A fuse is next to impossible... going to put a 1.5 amp in its place; yeah, I know, but its DOA now, so what ya gonna do? Also, when functional I'm told the FX selector works but won't go to bypass; so I'll probably be replacing that pot too.

4 Position Tele Electronics Upgrade w/ Treble Bleed
Here's everything you need to upgrade the electronics in your Tele with a 4 position switch and add the treble bleed mod. The first three positions are the same as the 3 position switch and the 4th position is the fatter sounding series position. The pots will fit the American Tele plates. If you need the plate you can find it here: https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/control-plate-fender-vintage-telecaster-chrome The one in the photo was finished up with some heat shrink for a pro look.

Treble Bleed
This is a really simple mod that can be added to most guitars. The circuit is used to brighten up guitars that darken the tone as the volume is rolled off giving more clarity to the signal during the full sweep of the pot. It's easy to install and can be further tweaked by playing with the resistor and capacitor values. A carbon comp resistor was chosen for a classic look but any type will work.

This is most of the parts you'd need beyond the small parts (resistors & small capacitors) option with a Triode Electronics turret board. This list also includes upgraded Atom caps to replace the lower end ones that Triode supplied with my kit. This doesn't include a chassis, cabinet, transformers and hookup wire.
