Project: 5E3-M Tonestack

by Yohe.evanj

This is a 5E3 microamp with an added baxandall tonestack for more control. Paired with a 10" speaker in a simple solid pine cabinet makes this an really good bedroom/apartment amp where you can still drive the tubes and hear your natural harmonic distortion. Everything you need to build this insanely good micro amp as a 10" combo is here except for the PT, OT, and the pine which I picked up from my local hardware store. I recommend at least 3/4".

As far as power transformer and output transformer, they are not included in the list. You will have to buy they from another site. Links for the PT and OT right here.

Credit where credit is due; I did not make this wonderful design. All props should go to Rob Robinette over at https://robrobinette.com/Deluxe_Micro.htm. All I did was sub out the single tone control for a baxandall tone stack and compile a easy to purchase parts list here.
