with about half the power!
How many hours has it taken you to build that? Ho experienced are you with electronics. I am not very experienced but it looks like that is not too complicated. What do you think. Is it a pain in the ass to do this?
i have some experience in electronics. that said, this is my first amp build, but not my first rodeo. i have tinkered with amps for long enough to take the dive. there are lethal voltages in an amp so i advise you to do some research before attempting it. after it is all done i would say it took about 10 to 12 hours for me to complete it. i spread that out over a week or so span!
Can you wire that without the power section so it is just a twin preamp?
i would imagine one could, but why not wire up the power section for at least backup. the removal of the power tubes is all that is needed to render that section inoperable for the preamp out.
Disclaimer: I get paid to make, modify or build things for those that seek what i may be able to provide.
