Completed the 5E3 Fender Project 2 today, and the testing went much smoother than expected. I had to rewire all my jacks as the pin outs on the jacks I have here are reversed from the standard switchcraft type jacks. This was a bit of a surprise but once it was adjusted for it tested up fine. This amp is way more powerful than the last amp project with higher plate voltages that are more typical of Fender amps.
Now I will take it to the local music store that I help with amp repairs and get the guitar guys that can play there give it a workout.
Well that session was received well and the tests went much better than expected.
