Welcome, my name is Tom Deering, and I build a limited number of vacuum tube guitar amplifiers. Tubes, as we like to call them in the States, valves to the Brits, and more correctly an electron valve. My designs are loosely based on the Western Electric circuit used by the Fender Musical Instrument Company* in the late 1950's. Specifically, the 5F6-A and 5F8-A, later adapted by Ken Bran for Jim Marshall Products LTD* and used in their JTM series amplifiers. Each DVA amplifier is hand wired in a style inspired by the Harry Joyce manufactured HIWATT* amplifiers. Power and output transformers at either end of the chassis, to balance the amp, turret board circuit with flying leads to valve sockets and control pots. Clean and Drive channels, selectable via footswitch, long tank Accutronics reverb, with level control at the footswitch. Mercury Magnetics, and Hammond Mfg. transformers. Every effort is made to insure that each and every amplifier is more than just the "sum" of its individual parts.
