Hey UG! I've decided to make a tube amp.

I live in Brazil and any tube amp is too expensive.

So, i have experience with eletronic and an old man who dedicated his entire life fixing tube amps wants to help. He gave me some schematics (fender bassman and others) and everytime i meet him, he asks if i'm going to build the amp.

I play from classical to metal and I need a good amp to do this job. A pretty nice clean tone and a good overdrive/distortion (Maybe a 50W is enough). I'm gonna buy some pedals too.

Which tube amp do you recommend to build?
I've heard there's a guy (here) who mixes (?) a fender (clean) with a marshall/soldano/mesa. Is it worth to do, or should I make only a fender or a marshall?

Thanks...
... and sorry if i put this thread in the wrong place.

^Combining the two is mega mega hard, else someone would've already done it.

TS, I'd do something similar to a Mesa Mark III. It's going to be pretty complex wiring and stuff, but that amp has the best of both works in my mind.

Possible candidates:
Trainwreck.
Dumble ODS
Fender Super (or Deluxe if you can live with less power) modified to 2 channels w/ high gain second channel.

There is a Dumble ODS build just finishing up.
A bit adventurous for your first build, though:

I'm building a Ruby at the moment so my skill are well off a tube amp right now but I know AX84 have a few amps aimed totally at begginers.
