...I plan to make a 5w valve amp. Does anyone know how hard this would be and if it would be like, expensive?

I think it would be cheaper than buying an Epiphone Valve though!

When I start to get this started (maybe December-ish) I shall keep you up to date!

Almost anythin's cheaper than an epiphone valve. Gibson's are too damn overpriced.

^?? Epip valves are like 200. Most amps cost a hell of a lot more than that.

That cornfused me too. Anyways TS, I don't think you could make one cheaper than a VJ. Maybe you could if you had some of the stuff already but I just don't think its plausible.

Edit: Don't let that stop you though. You could possibly make one a hell of a lot better than a VJ.

I know it sounds cofusing, but I would only really have to buy the valve(s). That would be something like £30, which is £90 cheaper (me thinks) the the Epiphone!!

Oh well in that case definitely do it. So how come you only need the tubes?

right. Thats why its EPIPHONE!!!!!!!!!!!
$150 for a tube amp (combo version) is damn good. cheapest tube amp ull ever find. not the best tho

TS, go for it, and make an amp that kicks the s*** out of the valve junior!

A mate of mine made a 100w trans for his GCSE project.

5w tube? Go for it.
