It is COMPLETE. My first tube amp build! A collaboration with B Custom Cabinets with the help of DW Etching. #diy #dirgeelectronics #gear #guitar #amp #amplifier #tubeamp #tubes #combo #comboamp #6v6 #bcustomcabs #dwetching #etching
Long story short, I built my own amp based off of a Valve Junior, but using a 6V6.
A good friend of mine and local cab builder and I did a trade, and he built the combo shell for me.
Loaded with a WGS Reaper 12” 30w speaker. This little dude RIPS.

I take you to guitar center so you can watch me try out different delay pedals and then leave without buying anything.
Ended up selling my selling my Jet City head that Ben modded and made the face plate for and scraped together all the funds that I could…. only so that I could pick up this beast!
Dude, I can’t even begin to describe. It’s like the PERFECT amp for me, seriously. I wanted a little bit more power than the Jet City, with the clarity and cleans that it had, and that incredible headroom.
This head definitely does that and more. Super pedal friendly, chimey cleans if I want them, meaty cleans if I want them. Can be quiet in my tiny apartment while my wife is asleep, but roars when it needs to. The boosts give the already awesome base tone even more flexibility and options.
The 6550’s give me a little more low end than the Jet City had, and when you crank the amp it’s got the best power tube distortion.
I haven’t had a chance to use the recording line out yet, but just the option to have a tube DI now just blows my mind even more. Such a simple premise for an amp, but totally what I’m all about. My inner caveman loves the simplicity of ‘VOLUME’ and ‘TONE’.
