Good stuff. Do you have a schematic we could have a look at. Is this your own custom design?

Interesting project. No one can accuse you of taking the easy route here as it will either look awesome or a dogs dinner. I admire your style.

thanks, its a learning process. like i said this is my first ever build, so i am sure mistakes will be made.


Update:
went to my local radioshack that is closing and picked up tons of resistors and various other parts i needed (knobs, 1/4" jacks, 2 way switch, ect.) all for 50% off.

currently waiting on the tube and its socket, as well as some capacitors and that's about it.


this is what i got done when i came home.

Cool project, but is that a balsa wood case? If so, that seems like a pretty poor choice of woods.

it is, but i wont be using that for the final product.
i'm going to break it down and use the 4 parts as templates to transfer to another more solid material. i wanted to see how i should lay it out. i will most likely be sticking with wood though.

Will you be changing the knobs so that they match?



no, but i do have matching sets of both types of knobs.

i like the the look of the volume knob being different, its gives it a almost an old HIFI amp look.

I'm not feeling it myself. My thoughts with any DIY job is to get it as close to a factory look as possible so that it doesn't look home made. But it's your amp so you can be as bohemian as you like ;-) .
