Mr PedalPCB....they have the schematics online for this that are public....maybe add this to your line up ! ?
Possibly.

I've done some contract work for both Michael Klein and Ceriatone (in fact I designed the PCB for that one) so I'll have to see what their thoughts are... otherwise it'd be a conflict of interest.

I posted on Ceriatone if people would be interested in a buffered loop and Muzzle-noisegate for amps. I think it would be a nice unit to have. As soon as I saw the Ceriatone PCBs I knew they were your work.

I knew someone would have a Ceriatone here. I'm saving up for one right now. They seem like the best bang for the buck on the planet to me. How has your experience with it been?
ceriatone is great i am a registered repairman for ceriatone for the far north coast of australia and i don't get that many calls about issues with them
building a champ kit from them was how i became obsessed with building and repairing amps

Hey thanks, thats good to hear from a registered tech! I was just looking at their list of techs and luckily there is one in the Seattle area which is cool if I ever need it. Definitely not ambitious enough for an amp build myself, quite past my talents at the moment haha but someday I'd like to build a little champ kit. I'm having a hard time not trying to get their AH-50 or the Deluxe even, since it'll be my only amp for a good while, it checks most boxes.

Awesome quality and awesome sound....i wanted a amp that had tube distortion vs clipping diodes. I bought the Hot Mod V2 for a extra gain stage and just bought the Ceriatone Kleinulator for a buffered loop. I was going to put in that zero loss loop in but i would have to drill a extra few holes in the chas....The guy put the PPIMV in one of the speaker jacks see pic below...i may build a high gain Yeti or Chuppa 50W down the road...but we haven't slowed down a bit at work, very lucky...working 7 days a week....very blessed
Hey thanks. Yeah about those loops. Since it'll be my only amp I'm digging their AH-50, deluxe or not. Maybe the king Kong. Checks the boxes. 2 channels, line out, etc. So is their buffered effects loops that you can option for, or in the case of the AH50 it comes with, the same as the zero loss loop thing you mention? Is that pedal better than what they would put in internally? Just curious for options since they seem very open to customization.

build it yourself
nothing is better than playing your own custom built guitar, pedals, leads and amp/cabinet
Maybe a starter amp but I am only on pedal build number three, I don't trust myself wiring a big one like that Friedman head. One day I'll get there though I agree homemade is awesome.

A rainy day here.

1997 mesa boogie Tremoverb and a 1985 Marshall 1960A.

I refurbished the cab as you can see here


Using a product called Duratex which is basically vinyl you apply with a textured brush to look like tolex. It's used on PA gear and those massive speaker systems for outdoor concerts so I figured it couldn't hurt. Tolex is such an outdated wasteful product I was loathe to go down that route again. Duratex is the future.

Great idea. I use my own design that combines a parallel triode preamp, LTP phase inverter and a 5E3 tweed style 6V6 output stage. I get a great cranked JTM stack tone at neighbor friendly volumes.

Here's my current rig after moving into my condo. To keep it at bedroom volumes but still pack a good dimed 6V6 thump, I've ended up with a whacky but VERY effective solution. Amp speaker out > Suhr IR Reactive Load (line out) > 5 watt SE amp (I also designed) set for a low transparent clean JUST to drive the 2x12 closed back speaker cab. All pedals are before the amp. I'll include a link to an old You Tube demo I posted years ago when I use to frequent amp builder forums.
