The Mini Champ

The Mini Champ is a tweed cabinet for the 1-watt single-ended 6AK6 amp. The speaker is a Weber Signature 6" alnico that sounds fantastic.

For this clip, the amp was on 10. I used a Fender Strat. You can hear me switch from the neck to the bridge pickup, and then from single-coil to humbuckers. The idea was to show how you can get different sounds by switching pickups and varying your playing.

I used a Les Paul copy for these clips. The amp is on 10.

The cabinet is soft pine with 1/4" finger joints. The tweed has a dark caramel color.

This is a prototype that has a few blemishes. The black dots on the grill cloth were from the paint used on the speaker screws. It's an easy fix.
