The 'Tweedy-Lux Pre' is an all tube, hand wired preamp section of the classic 5E3 Tweed Deluxe Preamp. Make no mistake, this is not a
PCB module meant to sound like the real circuit, this is a true hand-wired circuit with the complete original four hole input, normal and
bright channel preamps, and original tone control circuit. It has all the magic of those straight forward classic Tweed Tone circuits. In
addition, a tube driven output buffer is added to drive a power amp (or two). There is a line output level control to adjust the output
volume of the preamp. This also allows you to crank the preamp section, getting some nice drive, but allowing you to tailor the signal
level going out. To get the full classic 5E3 amp, pair this with our 20 watt mono block (coming soon) in the cathode biased position and
turn the negative feedback off. But, you can try many new options now like using fixed bias, negative feedback, or paring with our 50
watt mono block power amp (coming soon) to get more power out. We recommend pairing with our 50 or 20 watt mono block power
amps and speaker cabs, but it's compatible with any power amp. For example, how would you like to bypass your Hot Rod
Deville/Deluxe front end and take a 5E3 preamp straight into your power amp input on the Hot Rod. Yes, you can..
