But no, it's not a clone. Rather, I'd like to call it my FiveFish version
uses input transformers with high-nickel and mumetal shielding,
monolithic opamps and also has the option to use 990/992/2520 discrete
opamps, null offset, output transformers, on-board voltage regulators,
Relay-controlled -20dB Pads and Polarity Reverse, Soft-start phantom
power, LED-lighted push button swithes, Grayhill selector switch,
It uses a very very low distortion opamp chip for
amplification, coupled to a high current, high-slew rate (2000V/us)
video buffer driver subjecting that output transformer into submission.
sound is huge and beefy... it will fight back when pushed hard, and
slap you up and down silly to let you know who's boss... kinda like a
rock n roll club bouncer.
