Manufacturer's Description from Victoria

The Two Stroke Amp Kit is the kit provided to readers of Dave Hunter's popular book THE GUITAR AMP HANDBOOK who would like to build the Two Stroke project in the back of the book and would rather buy all of the parts from a single source. NOTE: Before sending an order for purchase you must read, understand and agree to both the TERMS & CONDITIONS and the WARNING below. Any request to purchase a Two Stroke Kit in any form constitutes an agreement to and understanding of these Terms & Conditions, and to the WARNING.

The Two Stroke is a single-ended, true class A tube combo with single 6L6 output tubes in its 'standard format' (swappable for a single 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6K6, etc) and a 1x12 inch speaker configuration. Power output is between 4 watts (6V6 or 6K6) and 8 to 10 watts (6L6 and larger tubes), depending upon tube used. The project published in Guitar Amp Handbook was for a 'dual-single-ended' amp with 2x6V6s that could be swapped for a single 6L6 like the Two Stroke uses now, but this proved too complicated to supply for the extra effort involved.

After repeated testing the single 6L6 sounded just as good (if not better) and makes it an easier amp for beginners to build, so it made sense to make the change.

You can still swap the single 6L6 for a single 6V6, or for any of the other tubes mentioned above. The project still uses the same diagram, you just don't connect the extra wires to the second output tube socket to wire it in parallel, and you delete the extra bias resistor and bypass cap.

About Manufacturer

In 1993, I set out to faithfully recreate the crown jewels among the many classic amplifiers developed by Leo Fender. The tweed amps of the late 50's defined the sound of rock and blues on vinyl and on stage, but they had also become increasingly scarce, and well beyond the reach of most working musicians.
