Project: 2 Stroke Amp Build

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. The book is a must-have for this project.
THIS PROJECT SHOWS ONLY THE PARTS I NEEDED, AND SOME XTRAS FOR THE NEXT PROJECT. PLEASE SEE DAVE HUNTERS BOOK FOR A COMPLETE PARTS LIST.
