Tweed 30TV (5A5 Pro): The latest (and
last) TV front amplifier added to my lineup, sitting alongside the 5TV
and 15TV. Pushing out a soft 25w, it's best to think think of this amp
as a beefed up Deluxe with a pair of 6L6s driven a huge 15" speaker. Stuffed with a WGS G15A Alnico speaker, Jupiter Red Astrons, and 3 x 6SL7 preamp valves.
Guy’s custom ordered Tweed 20 (5E3, fixed bias, 450v B+) features a
boosted power supply and fixed-bias to give the 5E3 circuit a little
more authority. Stuffed full of Jupiter Yellows and loaded with a WGS
G12C speaker, it’s off to Cornwall!
@RiftAmps the Tweed Pro with G15A speaker is an amp that really appeals to me. The web site says that it is available in TV Front and Narrow Panel enclosures (Wide Panel also?) and in three circuit designs. If the TV Front is a 5A5 are the other two options 5D5 and 5E5?
Do all three available circuits push out the same power?
and have similar clean headroom?
The 5E5-A has more headroom, but not by much.
And how would you describe the differences between them sound-wise?
You can order the 5A5, 5C5, or 5E5-A circuits in any of the cabinets - TV Front, Wide Panel, and Narrow Panel.The 5A5 and 5C5 are around 26w, the 5E5-A is 30w.The 5E5-A has more headroom, but not by much. 5E5-A is like a mini-Bassman - classic nP Tweed tone, whereas the others are chewier, sweeter, and have more harmonics.I have both 5E5-A and 5A5 demo amps available to try here at the shop.
