Thanks for posting. I only know about the AX84 one.

What are you looking to build? What was rattling around in my head was a small tube combo unit to add a bit tube-smoothness to the output of a Line6 Pod.

The Ultimate Question: What string gauge is needed for 18.84# of tension when tuned to E2 on a 27" scale guitar?

I want an amp that has two tube channels and two solid state channels.

I built an amp long ago in a city far away. I actually left it in my office when I switched jobs. Can you believe that? What a lame way to lose an amp. I'll have to try again when I have time.

He's got a few solid state guitar amps, but one is 100W meant to be a head that can power a variety of speaker combos, including 2 4x12 (full stack).
