Peter De Coninck (4/5)

I built this kit into a Tweed style cabinet, looking mighty sharp.
Awesome vintage reverb for my Gretsch electromatic and 5E3 Tweed amp !
But...I would like like to share my building experiences for would-be builders.

This is a kit that requires utmost care and concentration during soldering.
This is not a kit for novice tube amp builders:

Observe point E on the wiring layout: not less than 9 wires join here and must make 1 firm, solid solderjoint.

Observe point F on the wiring layout: not less than 6 wires joins here and must make 1 firm, solid solderjoint.

Observe the two D points on the wiring layout: one D point goes to power supply.
The other D point also should go to the power supply, but this is NOT shown on the wiring layout.

Note to TAD crew : please take note of this for improvement ;-)

And last but not least: wire up the main board first, and then the power filter capacitor board. NOT vice-versa like I did ;-(

During testdriving I encountered a faulty porcelain noval tube socket.
TAD sent me a new one by express carrier, no fuzz or hassle. Great service !

Reconsidering it all:

I've built an amp or two in my lifetime ( eyesight is beginning to fail me now) and this kit took all of my skills.
The reward is an awesome vintage reverb sound, f*ck digital.
