The Little Wing starts with the tweed Princeton 5F2-A circuit’s single volume and tone controls and tube compliment. Blue coupling caps, carbon comp resistors and ceramic disc tone caps were all selected based on typical Brownface specs along with a slightly beefier 5-watt output transformer. The speaker is a WGS G8C which sounds great in this amp. Input 1, the Brown channel has a decidedly Brownface voiced preamp. Input 2 is the British channel with a JMP50 voiced preamp. Pulling the volume knob internally jumpers the British and Brown channels for a very cool third voicing.

Pulling the tone knob adds additional second stage preamp gain; great for gain at lower volumes. NFB knob allows for fully adjustable negative feedback, ranging from heavy to light. An Off/Standby/On power switch is located on the rear panel. Next to it is a 100% or 25% switch which lets you drop the power output to the speaker to just over 1 watt for reduced volume without loss of tone. You can also switch between Cathode Bias and Fixed Bias at the flick of a switch to adjust the amount of sag.
