The tonestack from a 5E3 has been built plenty of times with 18 watters, usually around the Lite 2b circuit...

No file attached though, so I'm not sure what you're looking at specifically.

You can build a Fullerwell and just wire V2 as a LTP instead of cathodyne. But why?

Weird, we're able to attach PDFs. Try placing it inline (or not if you already were). Also check the file size.

The bright cap is shown as 680p. I believe that should say 180p.

Hi Geoff,

Sorry, my OCD compelled me to mention that cap value! Interestingly, it is shown as 680p on the schematic too, so may just be TubeTown's mod. Sorry for the topic derail.

No luck.. It try's to load but then I get the yellow triangle error saying 'invalid filename'.. obviously this is on my end.

This is my scenario and my basic question:
I have a 5E3 Deluxe chassis, cab, speaker, and transformer set.
I want to match up a 4 input V1 pre-amp from the 5E3 to a LTP of a 'Marshall type' PI. I would like to retain the separate volume controls of the 2 channels with the single tone knob (Keeping the stock look of the chassis.)
My idea was to build a 'sleeper'...
Something that 'looks' like a tweed deluxe but with a bunch more snarl.
I've done the Robinette mods, the Caldwell mods, and a bunch more mods but haven't been able to get that snort out of it yet.
Modifying the chassis is a no go as I have not yet been able to find one that the nickel wont peel off if I drill a hole in it.
I super appreciate all your help guys.. maybe there is a reason I haven't found what I'm looking for.
Cheers
