*sigh* It sounds like you have absolutely no idea about electronics at all (if you do, sorry, it's just the way you came across).
I'm sure there's about 1241343124 threads on this already, use the magic of the search button.

I'm not bashing, I'm just trying to teach people not to give out bad advice.
But yeah, what forsaknazrael said. A Valve Jr would be an excellent way of starting out modding amps. Another bonus is they have bleeder resistors, so the likelihood of you killing yourself is SLIGHTLY reduced. Make sure you know how to drain caps before you even start looking at tube amps.

Make sure you've checked and double checked how to do things safely, though, before you do anything. Even when unplugged, a tube amp can still be dangerous.


Just ask LuthierOfTexas, he got a few hundred volts off his VJ not so long ago

i got a few hundred off mine. i got lucky, it had been sitting unplayed and unplugged for a day, so it didn't kill me, but it still felt really wierd. i thought someone had walked up behind me and jumped on me.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.
