Pictured below is a miniature version of the highly sought after Klon Centaur. The pedal is built in a 1590A sized enclosure allowing for a very small footprint on a pedal board.
While the original Klon pedal is buffered bypass this version is wired for true bypass. The pedal still retains the input buffer, it is not used for bypass operation though.
I am beginning to put together a Marshall 1974x, better known as the Marshall 18W amp. This all tube powered amp will be built in a head cabinet that can be hooked up to an external speaker cabinet of choice. This 1974x circuit won’t be stock though, I am using the 1974x circuit as a platform to try a few modifications and circuit tweaks/ideas. The end goal of the build is to have a low power Marshall JTM/JMP/Plexi type amp. Lots of big fat clear clean tones and sweet harmonic distortion.
The chassis, eyelet board, power transformer, output transformer, faceplate and head cabinet are coming from the good folks at Trinity Amps. The rest of the parts I am sourcing myself.
