Nowadays (2012) you can score a big 6L6 vintage Fender amp for the same price as a Deluxe Reverb or Princeton Reverb. The PA was invented long time before that and guitar tones containing fuzz and distortion have been around since the sixties-seventies.Why has the desire for low wattage amps with 20-25 watts of tube power come up so late?The 5U4GB removes the instant attack that we struggled with and introduces more sag and compression.Then we pulled the V1 preamp tube and replaced the tremolo intensity pot with a new switchable one that can completly disconnect the tremolo circuit from the signal path when turned to zero (see tremolo disconnect mode below), both to thicken the tone by increasing the preamp gain in the amp. The pick attack was now acceptable and the hard treble frequencies were compensated with punchy lower mids.You will be able to shape your tone significantly with just the right speaker(s) and tubes.

It is just powerful enough to cut through in practise in a band with a drummer and, unlike some bigger amps, it will reach its sweet spot at a reasonable volume.It has the typical blackface 60’s sparkle with a scooped clean sound just like the bigger Fender brothers, just with more smooth breakup, sag and compression.We finally decided to continue the path that team Linda Ronstadt had started, enhancing this amp to our needs.First we implemented the bright cap mod due to the bright speaker.
