The trio. This has to be the worst cell phone camera Ive ever owned!!!!
Good lord man, how much can you fit in that little chassis??!! :-oI've had a lot of fun with the 5F1 circuit. It's just about the best amp for a raw voicing.
My biggest complaint with the original factory amps is the undersize cabs and poor quality speakers. I'm not one that considers a crappy speaker to be part of the "vintage mojo" of old amps.

The 5F1 is definitely a "ship in a bottle" amp, but mine isn't as bad as it looks. The PCB you're referring to is just a terminal strip for the power cord & transformer connections.Good lord man, how much can you fit in that little chassis??!! :-o
I see what looks like an impedance selector, but what's the little PCB that power lead's hooked into?
Thanks @cherrysunburst00!! It really is! These AVTs don’t get a lot of love because they’re hybrids, but man they rock.That AVT20 is a sweet Classic Rock machine all week long.
No, no, no... you can’t leave us hanging. You wouldn’t be hijacking the thread. We WANT to see all your cool small amps. That’s how GAS works.I am addicted to 1 X 12 combo's both vintage & modern. I have had Marshall half stacks and 100 watt monsters but have sold them off over the years. Now I have been going after high quality 1 X 12 combo's. There's something special in the small cabinet tones that I love. Compression I quess? Eye balling a few Friedman combo's now. Can not rule out Mesa either. Here's a super clean 1964 Blackface Champ I own, production run #1 [November 1964].

Many more , don't want to hijack the thread.
I'm running out of space in my small guitar room.
Oh man that Champ bring back some great memories! I had a 65 Vibro Champ back in 1969...it was my first ‘real’ amp. Man do I wish I kept that one!
