How about an 18W 6V6 Trainwreck inspired build ?

Post by Doxie man »

Just finished tuning and adjusting this one after putting it on the back burner last winter. I must say, I’m most impressed with it ! It’s a fantastic little amplifier with a little bit of Vox and Marshall in there ….like a chocolate & vanilla cone ❤️

Which preamp circuit did you go with? I'm taking a hard look at the Liverpool.

Looks awesome! I have been thinking about doing something similar but don't know where to start. Did you draw a schematic for this one you would share? Thanks in advance.

The Rocket is basically a tweaked AC30, so not a "real" Trainwreck IMO.So my vote would be for the Liverpool too, but with just two power tubes instead of four.

Nature abhors a clean tube amp
