I received my Murder One from Rick last night. 

I've only had a chance to try it out with a MacGyvered speaker setup - 2 6ohm desktop speakers in series - but even through this sub-optimal arrangement this thing kicks!  Spent a few hours testing pedals in front of it.  My favourite combo was Gibson Firebird - Ross comp clone - modded Dunlop Fuzz Wah - Pentaboost - Red Llama - EA Trem - Next Analog Delay - Murder One.  Both the fuzz-wah's fuzz and the Red Llama sound awesome through it.  Awesome fuzz and super long sustain into some really sweet harmonic feedback. 

With guitar plugged straight into it you get sweet 60's garage sounds.  "Did someone poke holes in my speakers with a pen?" kind of thing. 

Will provide a more detailed review of the sound when I get to play it through a more efficient, 8 ohm speaker.

The workmanship is top notch - not hard to imagine when you look at some of Rick's other builds - and the layout is such that if tubes need replacement, etc it would be a pretty painless process.

Great work Rick, can't thank you enough!

Finally settled in at my new place and unpacked my submini tubes and went to grab the schem for Murder One but it's no longer up on photobucket, anyone able to send me the current version?

Cheers  8)

Here's the start of the next one:





I've shrunk the layout right down. Just waiting for transformers to arrive to finish this one - and a few more.

The latest "Murder One" Submini Tube Guitar Amplifier. This one is already SOLD, I'm building a few more identical if anyone's interested in owning one.

Well, maybe I could tempt you with a "Sub Zero"? Or one of the 'other' designs I've been secretly working on...............
