Hot Toddy is Morphing

I’ve been messing with the Hot Toddy and I’m moving away from the 6K6 power tubes. I’m not sure if it’s just this circuit abut I could get happy with the way they overdrive. They seemed to have a dark over characteristic that didn’t work well in this amp.

So I am now running 6V6s instead. I really prefer them in this amp. I also changed the phase inverter to the one in the Gibson GA-40. So this one has become a sort of GA-40 variation with a 5725 pentode instead of the 5879 and I’m having a good time playing it. It’s a really nice rock or blues amp.

More on this amp later…
