Brigham Alcorn's Angry Fat Kid and TigerTone Amps
Brigham built these two amps from vintage amps. The Angry Fat Kid (left) is built from a vintage tube-powered Plectron FM Receiver from 1964 that was used in fire departments. It has vintage transformers, NOS 6AQ5 and 12AX7 tubes, and the original 1 meg pot. The cabinet is furniture-grade cedar. The TigerTone (right) is a Silvertone 1301 circuit built into a vintage GE record player amp. The speaker, tubes, and transformers are all from the original amp.
