Any amp builders out there
boB, Modding the preamp section on your legacy is pretty simple, you can modify the tone section by altering the values of the caps in the range you are tweaking. IMO amps should come standard with a parametric eq.
I have never built an amp from the ground up, but I have rebuilt amps from the chassis up, complete redesign of output sections to handle 6l6's which are more readily available. Tube amps can be fun to tinker with as long as you don't put your fingers near the 400V Caps. Not fun..hehe ( never been zapped, but a buddy was) *At any rate, I'm rambling, but if you're serious about getting into the sport, there are MANY resources out there with schemats and the theory behind what you're attempting. Have fun!
