    Sorry for the spam lol But, you guys gotta check this out if you havent already- http://store.bnamp.com/

    Those are 18-watt lite kits and are priced very fair. For a whole kit inlucding the vintage head cab, it is $600. And these are no W***R kits lol. The have lots of good quality components such as Silver mica's, sprague electrolytic Caps, new and NOS carbon comp resistors, and mallory M signal caps.

    For more info check out this link- http://www.brown-note.com/kit/

    I could literally buy one right now(its soooo tempting!!) but I think I'll save up for my Standard SG  :coolsmiley:

    Here is a pic of a finished one:

    I really suggest you try one out to see how it is!!

    man... i wish i could build that. i'd get shocked though probably. are there instructions and how much electronic experiance is needed? would someone with hardly any electonic experiance be able to build it. i guess it might be hard because i dont even know how to bias an amp and you'd probably have to do that for this kit.

    Randyrhoadslives13, I suppose it's up to the individual, but they almost universally say to start out amp building on a simpler kit, like the Fender Champ or similar. 18watt dot com is a great site for intermediate/advanced builders and AX84 forum is a bit more for beginners, and has some excellent low wattage amps.

    http://www.ax84.com/
    http://www.18watt.com/

    The experience trains a person the ropes and what to do when things don't work right, then build something somewhat more complex and so on. Also, complete kits with instructions or a forum support is highly recommended over less pre-organized projects. I've heard some very small tube amps and they can sound amazing, and louder than one might expect. Also a 5watt amp is not 10times quieter than a 50watt amp, it's only half as loud. There are a few makers of small tube amps that also make kits, some of which can be ordered in varying levels of completion! Doberman and Ceriatone comes to mind.

    http://www.ceriatone.com/
    Holy crap, they are offering a Trainwreck Express preassembled for $550 w/out tubes faceplate and case! Also Liverpool TW offered.

    Site is going thru construction
