OK, here's the deal. I recently bought a Marshall JTM-1H, wich is the most amazing little amp ever made. But, now I need to play Live, here's the plan of where I am playing :

[forbidden link]

I want to BUILD my own amp. I don't know how powerful it needs to be, but I want it to be simple. Give me amps names or if you find LAYOUTS not schematics (can't read those) give me the link to them.

Thanks

Can you solder?

What type of music do you play?

There are loads of kits available for Classic Fender and Marshall amps.


Your link is broken... Probably because you are new and it thinks you are a spam bot.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

Yeah, I solder, and my mom's friend built his own amp too, so I have help.
I usually play Classic rock, like AC/DC, and I'll probably play a LOT of boston.

What amp were you looking to build?

Triode has some kits as well as most other supplier sites....

Ceriatone has a some options...

Be aware not all kits are complete, some have different levels of complete-ness to them.


Keep in mind there are lethal voltages in tube amps.

You need to be able to read schematics. You must know the correct values of components you use, a lot of them all look the same.

modtone was having a sale on diy kits recently, they might still be.

Ceriatone is a great company and you can get kits with preassembled turret-boards which mat help you very much.

Egnater does an amp building Clinique that may be of interest to you, but it is expensive to take.

For your first build I would suggest doing a very easy build.

Build a JTM45. It's an easy build, sounds great, and puts out about 35 watts, which is perfect for gigging and will nail the kind of sounds that you want.

The triodeelectronics.com JTM45 kit is pretty good.
