Cool amp Buddy, is it a Fender clone or did you re-design it yourself?  Hope it has a few more watts than the 5F1 had. hehe!

Yep, just a simple little circuit. Easy to build and sounds great.

Sort of clone but I did add a tone circuit. Ended up building two of these and both are gone. Not a lot of power but good practice amp

How many watts? I read that Clapton used it back in the day, and the SF! put out only 5W at best. I wonder if that was before or after he did crossroads! Thanks for showing us that amp.
