    So there has been a couple of times where I wanted to go out to local jam nights and I didn't want to take out my Fractal AXE rig. Too Big for what I needed. Made me think that I shouldn't have sold my Fender Super Champ. That was perfect for those kinds of jams..

    So, in looking around and trying to decide what to do I first thought I would build a Laptop based Positive Grid Bias rig... There again, it required more then a handful of stuff to carry out and in places.

    So after reading about Mals great experiences with Don's Soul Tramp amps I decided to give Don a series of PMs.. I was looking for a small, low powered combo in the Fender Tweed category. After a few messages back and forth we decided to go with Don's take on the Tweed Champ Amp Clone @5 watts. Don promised to let me do a build thread right here.. So here we are..

    Don.. Thanks for taking on the project. I look forward to seeing the progress.:thumb:

    .........................I have already taken a screenshot of the OP. :D :wave:

    Seriously though, it makes sense. A small, great little grab & go 112 Combo is a very useful tool. I have a Bogner Duende 112 that fits the bill perfectly & sounds glorious. It can cover everything from Jazz, Country, Rock & Blues etc. Only thing it cannot do is Metal. :)

    Working with Don on a project would be cool. :)

    :cheers2:

    Smaller then a 1 12 brother. this is a 1 10 upgraded from a 1 8. At 5 watts this tiny combo will fill a need I have for a grab and go noise box.. :thumb:
