I promise I’m not stupid, but I am left handed. I looked at the diagram from the perspective of outside, so all my tube wiring was backwards. Yikes. I’ve used the lightbulb and a variac, so hopefully we’ll be ok. I’ll rewire it, and check grounds and cross fingers and toes.
Thank you all for the assistance. I make pretty good acoustic guitars, so I’ve learned that my strengths lie in that area more than amp building.
The help I’ve gotten is great. Thanks again. I’m determined to get this running!
