This is my first post I gotta to say lots of good stuff on here I've been lurking about for some time checking things out.
So I'm looking for a good schematic for one of the old Widowmaker type guitar amps. I plan to use an ISO transformer so no big deal with the electrical hazard.
I got a couple of old transformers I can use for input iso transformers. I also have a couple of audio output transformers. So I thought this could be a pretty cheap build not having to buy an input transformer that's why I was looking at the Widowmaker type / hot chassis design then had no input transformer and fed with 120v with no heater transformer either.
With all that being said I know these designs were usually on the cheap side so I know they're not super high quality audio output. Just thought it would be fun, easy, and cheap. Your recommendations on design schematic please!

I don't recommend going down that road. If you want an inexpensive build, I would look towards the Lite 2b in our downloads section: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=24431 - simple circuit, and sounds great.
