Wow! I'm overwhelmed :o

My congrats, George! That's the way 'most true to original' replica of a Marshall I've ever seen and with that amp you've set the paradigm for all the other cloners everywhere! YOU'RE da man!

Only in case you didn't know yet: The yellow print Mullards indicate the tube as the long life, high reliability & high tolerances type. They do have a better cathode coating and a better vacuum (more gain) than the std. stuff. IIRC the yello prints are assured for a longevity of 100,000 hours, when operating in conservative designs. Meanwhile an invaluable tube!!!

C'mon! Let's open a butt of whisky now!

The fault almost always is sitting in front of the amp :wink:

Many of us here are building them too, for the same reasons we had to build our own amps. If George had those parts in his store, I'd buy them here and save a trip, and shipping.

Just a thought.
