BC Audio Amplifier No. 7
The hand-made vacuum tube guitar amps are built inside of US Army surplus .50 caliber ammunition boxes, or "ammo cans."
Amplifier No. 7 is a dual-channel non-Master Volume amp, with a maximum power output of either 15 or 25 watts, determined by the use of either 6V6 or 5881 output tubes with the appropriate 5Y3 or GZ34 rectifier tube. According to BC Audio, unique is the use of 6SL7 octal preamp tubes, rather than the ubiquitous 12AX7. Equally uncommon, Amplifier No. 7 features true point-to-point wiring — not turret board or eyelet board construction (which are often incorrectly referred to as "point-to-point").
