Built my 5e7 7/2008........ what a great amp.... in the last 3 years I have made a few changes like recapping with Sozo blue caps and AB carbon comp resistors which really warmed things up... also, smoothed out the higher volume gain placing a 470k grid stop resistor between  V3/p7 to the 1m resistor on the board.. also used shielded rg174  from the input's to V1/p2 and p7  and from V3/p2 to the treble pot. Last but not least added a buss bar and attached all pre-amp grounds to it cancelling at the chassis by the input jacks....

This amp took quite a bit of time to burn in and get shape... running Tung-Sol RI 5881's in V4 & V5 Jan GE NOS 12ax7's in V2 & V3 and a Brimar NOS 5751 IN V1.... currently running the head through a 2-12 cab loaded with a Celestion Alnico Blue and a G12H30...I Liked this circuit so much I have scratch built 2 more....

Very cool. Both those guitars are excellent.

I had a Fender Bandmaster when I was first playing back in the early 80's. Back then there wasn't as much emphasis on vintage amps, and I didn't really know if I had a classic one or not. It was more than likely from the 70's sometime, but could have been older. Actually someone put the chassis in a homemade pine combo with a Fender JBL 12" speaker. I know it had a great sound, but I was into harder rock and wanted more distortion, so I sold it like a fool.  Cry

Build a 5e7  you won't be disappointed  ....... such a great circuit..... Pete T. used a late 50's tweed with the  3 - 10's  on the Who's 'Who's Next' recording.... It has great chime and very clean and breaks up mid-point to get some good vintage crunch.....
