    Pacosipulami Overdrive Mini

    A new child is born! The "Pacosipulami Overdrive Mini" (based on the wreckage of an old Fender AA764 Champ)



    (unfortunately, I got no "licence to drill" )



    (6Watt tube power - 1x5Y3, 1x6V6GT, 2x12AX7)



    simple one channel design.....overdrive only! Pull down the volume of your guitar to get some clean stuff out of it!

    EDIT: Just made some small changes in the tonestack - woohoo!! This thing rocks! No hiss, no hum, no noise - just tone! Clips comin' soon!

    Cheers
    Paco

    I wonder how you can use this as a second channel for a Carr Rambler, Deluxe reverb etc?

    Re: Pacosipulami Overdrive Mini

    after almost 100 years.....I'm back @ BGT

    There are some update regarding my little amp.
    https://www.facebook.com/casanovasol...type=1&theater

    A stronger version (5 - 12Watt depend on the output tube, you can use EL34, 5881 or 6V6), single channel, lot of note bloom, endless sustain, huge dynamic range.....no noise, no hiss, no hum!
    The picture shows the prototype build in a modified chassis from an amp kit, trannies were from Hammond, Canada - the final version will have a custom wired output transformer to my taste and calculations)

    I also updated my MesaBoogie StudioPreamp to my latest curcuit design in july 2015....here is a demo!
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/.../MesaWooly.m4v

    note the sustain capabilities.....it's a preamp going into a Valvestate 8008 poweramp by marshall on a custom audio cabinet with 2x V30s 12" speaker..... Reverb is a Lexicon PCM70 Ver. 2.0

    Cheers
