let my friend test out the guitar amp. he is totally impressed by it.. it can go from clean to dirty and has a clear sweet tone to it.


however, he thinks it could be better if it could voiced to a les paul sound/blues sound..... wonder how i can possibly modify the circuit to do that..

On the above circuit, the "bluesy" sound is from the circuit in channel 2 I assume? I think I just need to replicate cct 2 if I want the "similar sound" although mine will using an SE output stage rather than a P-P. Am I correct in saying that?

No, the bluesey sound is from push-pull class A 6V6 output stage with that simple phase splitter.
Channel 2 is with tremolo effect, i.e. amplitude modulation by infra-low oscillations.

I read somewhere that a bluesy sound can also be created by overdriving/clipping a pentode... is that true?

I think it depends on the original famous guitarist who played the blues. They used different amps, on different settings. Les Paul played the amp schematic of which I posted above.
