    Some time ago I built this Watts Tube Audio kit into the Valve Jr chassis and cabinet. I have used a turret board and high quality components, alpha pots and switchcraft jacks. This is what Ken from Watts Tube Audio describes as the "Voxy Mod". Youtube voxy mod and you will get a pretty good idea what it sounds like.
    I have tried it with overdrive pedals but it gets too loud for what I need. It is pretty nice clean at bedroom levels.
    At this point I don't want to ship, so local pickup (Chicago Northwest suburbs) would be my preferred way of getting it to you.
    It is a fun little amp, Class-A so it gets very loud. The control next to the volume is gain. Pictures tell the story. It is yours for $100. I am willing to drive to a pickup location within reason.

    5 Watts
    Volume Control
    Gain Control
    Power Switch
    8 inch Eminence Speaker
    1 Input
    1 Channel
    1 x 12AX7A Preamp Tube (Electro Harmonix)
    1 x EL84 Power Tube (Sovtek)

    That seems like quite a deal. If I weren't in the middle of building a '57 Princeton clone I'd be trying to talk you into shipping that amp to me.
