Somewhere I got a hold of a schematic for a Fender Tweed Champ. I decided it wouldn't be loud enough and it just looked too simple. So I did a little redesign. I ended up building a Push-pull EL84 amplifier with the Champ's preamplifier and a solid state rectifier. Its topography was somewhat like a Fender Tweed Deluxe but its tone a bit more British.
This amp pays tribute to that very first amp that I built. Yet it also begins a series of much higher end builds.
