Answers to Your Questions:

  • The kit normally comes with Transformers made for us by Dagnall/TRX, they are overrated for the application and have a stunning clear tone.
  • Valves supplied are typically JJ type, unless there is an issue with supply.
  • The JJ Cap can has a 4 sections of 40uf - 20uf -20uf 20uf  section, the CE one has four 20uf like the original amp had, but it is more expensive, both work well in this circuit.
  • Blackface style with blackface knobs is the standard look, Brownface style with Cupcake knobs gives an authentic brownface look.
