Has anyone ever had a go at this? Does it cost much to do im not talking bout a high-end amp or anything just a simple one. Are there any sites that can help me in trying to build one?

Kerry's build is awesome. You'll pick up a lot of info from that. Some wiring diagram's in there too (I think!).

but that was quite an expensive project.I was thinking like just a small practice amp for a school project like just 1 input maybe a gain channel etc .

try building a pignose. the entire amp (pre and power) is like, maybe, 2x2 in, and it looks relatively simple, and only 3 watts. i can't be arsed, but google a schematic.

Pignose 7-100

Don't expect it to be cheaper than buying in alot of cases. It's only really worth it if you're building a discontinued amp that's rare. You'd be better off buying a Triple Rec. than building one.
Same for most amps really. An Epi VJ will be cheaper than the most common small amp build, the Champ.

Personally, I'd build a Champ though anyways, as it's a fun project, and you get to tweak the amp how you want it. Not to mention you can use very nice parts.

try an ax87 firefly, i made one out of a cheap epiphone studio 10 (which I don't recommend). it cost just under $100. it's not as clean, but it's nice and ballsy (atleast, I like to think).
