First of all i would like to say this is my first ever amp, I've built guitars and pedals but without the help of http://www.18watt.com/ i would be completely stuffed, so i'm just saying a quick thanks to everyone on the site and all the help information I've gathered.

I decided to build an 18w TMB because i wanted that extra versatility to just the normal Marshall channel, this is for my Year 13 A level product design course, everything was built from scratch, chassis and all own sourced parts. I thank valve power in the UK for giving me a great set of Transformers as well.

The amp turned on first time and i was astounded by the tone, i guess patience really does help when getting involved in these projects.

Ive taken some pictures and done a quick walk through video, if anyone is interested.

Heres a video, well the second part with the amp with some effects on.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.

Sums up whisky perfectly

is it me, or are there 3 output tubes?

It looks like that but the valve on the left is an ez81 rectifier tube where as the two next to it are el84's, this amp has a valve rectifier.
