You done good. I had one for a while and it's really great, and probably the best amp value on the planet.

Nicely done Jimi, similar to my Tweaker rig, only I'm running it into a 2X12 sealed cab.

Soon you will all but have forgotten there's a string gauge past 0.054........
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Right on! That looks like a good pairing. Is it a 2x12, 4x10, or 4x12? I have an old Marshall 2x12 that looks a lot like that size.

     Egnater makes fantastic stuff. I got one of the m4 modular preamps when he did a limited hand-built reissue run last year.Fantastic peice of gear.
     How is the headroom on the 15 watt tweaker. I have been tryng to decide between this and the 40 watt. you can't beat the price. and they can be ridiculously cheap on some used ones. 
     I would love to go to his amp building seminar in detroit that is coming up. I think it's gonna be a 50watt plexi ths go around.
tried lifting weights once....they were too heavy!

The 15 has enough clean headroom to get you above a moderate to lid drummer. However, because of the master volume and hot/clean switch, you can easily run those tubes at the same volume and get breakup.

Only thing I miss is the onboard reverb.
