While rebuilding the original Radio-Champ, I decided to have a go at adding a tremolo circuit. After a complete overhaul of the original construction and having to totally rethink how I used the available space, this is what I ended up with.

The amp itself sounds real nice and there's not a trace of hum (believe it or not). Still trying to figure out why the trem doesn't want to work--possibly a weak tube. Anyway, all that's left is some final wiring and she's done. This time I even got to reuse the original handle screws and chrome control plate.
