Just Joined the 5E3, Please Welcome Me!
Hi guys, I finished my Mission 5E3 kit  
3 (late) nights ago. Slept only 3 hours  
and went to work with a natural buzz and  
a smile they couldn't shake!  
Gots a little hum but the amp sounds and  
plays as described here on the forum.  
I am going to try 12ax7's in v1 and v2  
today and see how that sounds. Thanks  
to all of you and esp. Bruce-the-Man!  
You can just call me Johnson from now-on!

I guess I should say which speaker  
I put in the 5E3. I chose a Weber  
12A125-0, 30 watt. A Hybrid that is  
warm, crunchy, earlier break-up)  
Like a Jensen P12Q with a straight  
cone. (P12QR) by the way, because  
I am newer here, you can call me John  
or you can call me Johnson, or you  
can call me Son...

Congratulations on the build, and welcome to your new home away from home. You'll find lots of interesting and informative info here (I know I have), and 3 hours sleep will become your norm.  
I built mine as a head with a seperate 5e3 sized extension cabinet, loaded witha Weber Blue Dog (12" ceramic, 50 watt) so that I could use it with other amps as well. I am thinking about an AX84 next, or maybe a High Octane.  
I needed another hobby like a hole in the head :-)
