I started my 1st build last week. It's going to be a 3 channel 20-25 watt 6v6 build. I'm combining the JCM800 type kit I got from Trinity Amps with a design from Headfirst Amplification, called the Mini. It's basically a 3 channel clean, plexi-like, BE 6v6 amp. Channels 2 and 3 are the same, but have switches for boost, BE, JBE, Plexi modes. It's slowly coming along, and I've been learning a ton as I go.

Amps: Fractal FM9, Headfirst Amplification JT Jr, Ceriatone Plexi 51, Jet City JCA22H, Marshall DSL40c, Boss Katana Artist, Yamaha THR10x

Guitars: Suhr PT Signature, Peavey Wolfgang, EVH Wolfgang, Gibson LP Tribute, Washburn N24, Frankenstrat, Partsocaster, Squier CV Telecaster, Harley Benton DC Jr

Effects: Line 6 HX Effects

Check out my band:

Interesting, I wouldn't think plexi and 6v6 would go together. Good luck man!

Enjoy. Should be excellent from the clips I've heard of builds using that board.
