This is our smallest amp at 4.5
Watts. The circuit is based on the
1955 5E2 Princeton (which is a 5E1
Champ with an added tone control).
However ours is built in a tweed
Deluxe sized cabinet with a 12"
speaker and larger coupling
capacitors (the original had smaller
caps to reduce bass to protect the 8"
speaker). This makes a fantastic
recording amp for guitar or
harmonica or a somewhat expensive
practice amp! - there's nothing like
the tone of an overdriven Class A
amp and this is the only authentic
way to get that sound without
annoying your neighbors!
