This page will describe a vacuum tube guitar amplifier which I call the 1930-10. 1930 stands for the year in which all of the parts including tubes could have been salvaged by junking almost any radio of the 1929/1930 era. The -10 stands for the expected power output.

There has been some trouble understanding the circuit descriptions and the schematics presented earlier on this page so all of that content has been deleted.

After this amplifier is completed, running, and all problems sorted out, a schematic will be posted with all of the component values and other pertinent information.
