October 20, 2005

The output tranny is built for Retro-King by heyboer with the 6.6k primary plate load which is optimal for the kt-66 power tubes. As in the originals, the filtering in the first cap is a double 32mf cap and the second is a double 16mf cap. This amp uses the early "plexi" tone control values along with the standard preamp values.
