Ron Lovelace's Homebrew Amp
"Lovelace originally purchased this Thordarsen amp/PA at a swap meet. After finding that he couldn't repair it, he decided to build his own low-wattage amp. The result was his take on a classic Fender Princeton. ""I used as many of the old resistors and parts I could recycle,"" he says, ""I had a Deluxe power and Hammond output transformer. I used NOS power, rectifier, and preamp tubes. When cranked it has a great overdriven tone. When I push it through a 4x12 cab it sounds huge."" "
