hope this works out for you. i'd rather have it built locally. do you have any recordings of the hiss in the ceriatone hiwatt? isn't this amp a different circuit than the ceriatone hiwatt clone? I see a lot of metal film resistors in this chinese copy.
Yes, different amp, i never said it was the same as the Ceriatone.

Sorry, i don't have any recordings of the Ceriatone, i traded it last year.

Metal film resistors are okay because fuck Mojo!

Fender amps were built by regular workers back in the 60s with regular off the shelf parts. Most of that mojo magic is our heads, so im okay if my amps lack what is perceived as mojo.

What i dont want is hiss, or weird noises ..

Ive bought Américan made amps before and Ive been disappointed. So where its made its not that important to me.

I bought from Frenzel, Hiwatt or from whoever owns the name now.. Etc..

Nothing at all wrong with metal film resistors. My got to resistor when building stuff.
relaxing alternative to doing actual work ...
