I demand you get a little piece of plastic made in signature lettering that says MANTICORE (With a Marshall 'M') for the front of the head. :P

Re: The holy grial of amps!

That is very cool.

Have you any electrical qualifications, etc? I'd love to build a basic tube amp, but probably am not ready to deal with the lethal voltages.

Well I'm the service director of a plumbing & heating company and if occasionally I have to stick my hand into the odd hi voltage control circuit I guess I can make my way around this thing without killing myself.
but you know what they say..
"more electricians are killed on 110 than another voltage"
