Humble little build.  My first foray into the high voltage world of tube amps.  Original creator here:  http://www.frontiernet.net/~jff/pipsqueak_pentode/Pentode_DIY_guitar_amp.html.  Like the original author, I built the amp in a dead PC power supply chassis.  The only modification was a 3.3ohm 3W resistor for the filament winding.  The transformer was putting out 7.3V.

I have a bunch of different EF95 tubes for a headphone amp and was looking for something simple.  The 6AK6 power tubes are pretty cheap too.  Nice clean sound.

Cobbled together a little cabinet to go with the little amp using some scrap plywood and hand tools.  My woodworking skills leave a lot to be desired.  Got the four 4 1/2" full range speakers from Parts Express for cheap.  Sounds exactly like what one would expect from little speakers, thin, no bottom end, but it's hilarious.

It is what it is sonically, visually a very cool little setup. The cab looks exactly right!
