    I'm really enjoying it - the normal channel is good but the TMB channel is great, and sounds giant with my low tuned guitars. Very glad I decided to build this circuit.

    It lives! And, I have to say, it sounds bloody great. I spent an hour noodling around on it, and can see why people like these so much.

    I also decided today that I need a smaller cab for my 5E3. I think I may have mentioned I was thinking about it before, but it's such a great amp it'd be nice to be able to take it to jam with...

    This build is almost done. I got some polishing pads that attach to my drill, and it's done a pretty good job. It's not perfect, but I decided I don't really mind - I'm the only person who's going to...

    Yeah I agree Simon, multiple OT taps are definitely more useful. I'm pretty sure I saw a vibrochamp OT with 4, 8 and 16 Ohm taps, but didn't bookmark it. I'll have a proper look once I start buying...

    That's good to know Simon. It seems from what I've been reading that the speakers make a huge difference (unsurprisingly)
