Nice!

So what extra bells n whistles does the "brown eye" circuit offer?

Will it give me Eddie tone? :P

It's basically a 50W Jose modded Marshall.

A clone of the Friedman BE-50.

Since I bought this kit a year ago, Friedman came out with the "deluxe" version of the BE-50, which has the "Resonance" and the "Thump" controls, as well as a 1/2 power switch.

Couldn't care less about the 1/2 power switch. They don't even demo it in the videos.

But I am adding the "resonance" and the "thump" controls as I build. Also removing the loop, since I'm don't really like or use effects loops. :roll:

Just finished the "clipping" circuit with 3-way switch.

Essentially, you can switch in 2 germanium diodes, or a couple of transistors (used only as diodes), or switch off all the clipping. These sit in the cathode follower of the third pre-amp tube.
