    There is at least one problem with the 30+30w amp on the Talking Electronics website; the MICRO PC input is tied to +6v. Not good.

    For your 50w amp, take a look at Rod Elliott's site:

    All projects page: http://sound.westhost.com/projects.htm
    Articles page: http://sound.westhost.com/articles.htm
    The Articles section has a number of articles that directly relate to your inquiry.
    Here's one from the Beginners section about troubleshooting preamps, amplifiers, etc:

    i hope you get your project going! ive built a guitar amp, distortion box, and a wah wah pedal. fun and challenging. the thing i like about about finding a guitar circuit is modifying the components to make it sound the way you like it. good luck!
