Layout Diagrams for a 5E3 style Circuit Board
The circuit board layout ended up being very tricky for me. I was on a budget and limited to the parts I had available at the time. The amp chassis I had was a little small for an original 5E3 circuit so I had to build a more compact circuit board to fit the chassis. It's a tight circuit but works well.
The 5E3 provides a fair amount of power and plenty of volume for home use. I really like the crunch these amps put out. I had a amp chassis that was just big enough to squeeze all my parts into. Below is the 5E3 circuit board layout diagram that I constructed for my tube amp circuit.
