    The Truth shall set you free. A motto I live by. This amplifier was built from a circuit drawing a friend had given me with actual photo's of the subject amplifier. That amplifier was a "Trainwreck Rocket" by Ken Fischer. I was encouraged to just build it without modification and to use standard quality components and I was assured the tone would be nice. All true, it does sound nice... The schematic is very close to another EL84 design, by a British company called Vox, which also sounds nice. I ended up making a few personal touches to the schematic and upgraded the EL84's to a pair of 6973 tubes. Then I coupled the amplifier with a Celestion Blue 12" speaker in a combo configuration and added some synthetic fur, hemp grill cloth and a leather handle and called it done.

This amplifier is not being produced by Mill Hill Audio, as it is not our design. Thank you Ken for your passion and the execution of the wonderful collection of amplifiers you made while alive. RIP. 1945-2006.

Currently the "Truth" amplifier resides in our "Rockwood Records" recording studio and represents classic British Tone.
