  1. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Here we go again. I've decided to build a clone of a Matchless Spitfire using a kit from Ceriatone. I opted to source the trannies and choke over here (Classic Tone). Here's the layout. Trannies and choke I have everything I need to get started now. I'll have Derrick Bell build a nice...

    Hey everyone. I began my first amp build a few days ago. A Trinity Tweed Deluxe kit. I started a thread over at TDPRI and have been posting photos over there. Here is a link to the thread at TDPRI: http://www.tdpri.com/forum/shock-brothers-diy-amps/274205-trinity-amps-tweed-deluxe-kit.html I...

    So, I just nabbed another one of those sweet old Traynors from the 70s (the big Fender Twin Reverb styled one). I already have this same model, so having the second is giving me the courage to try adapting one into a bit of an Overdrive Special HRM version. I am more of an all amp-section...

    I'm presently sourcing parts to build a JTM45 clone, most builders are using a choke rated at about 5 to 7 Henries while the original Marshall schematic call for a 20 Henries choke. Can someone explain me the difference it can make to use a 5 H or a bigger like 20H choke ? I understand that...

    I just finished my JTM45 today. Sounds excellent! I bought this as a Christmas goift to myself (I love building amps... didnt need it but wanted it type thing :) ) I was going to buy a Metroamps kit from the USA, but I ended up buying a transformer set and chassis from Trinity amps in Toronto...

    Hey all. I've just finished a Weber 6A20 kit so I figured I'd start a thread describing the experience. The amp sounds great. Here's a few pics to get things started. The completed chassis... The front panel The rear panel And the guts I'll post some notes on the build later this...

    I was wondering if any one knows of a Canadian Dealer of tube amp kits. I am pretty handy but don't think I can build one from scratch...a kit would be better. I would prefer not to have to deal with cross boarder issues and fees. Thanks, Jay.

    Just purchased the 5A40 head amp kit from Weber over the weekend. The covering will be a double-aged tweed with tan dogbone handle, chrome plate and white lettering. As a tribute to Weber, I'm going to name the amp "Teddy." :smile: The plan is to make a 2 speaker cabinet sporting a couple of...

    Anyone know of a source for good tolex in Canada? Some metal cab corners would be nice too.
  10. Amps and Cabs
    I just thought I'd start a central thread for discussion of Traynor and Garnet amps. I have owned a YBA-1, a YGM-3 and now a YBA-2A. I have loved them all. I was just watching a couple of auctions on eBay and a 6V6 YBA-2A is already up to $404 USD with 3 days left in the bidding! ANd there...
  11. Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I have a friend down in the states who has a YSR-1 that has been modded to "Plexi" specs. The thing sounds amazing. I have a '68 YSR-1 and was wondering if anyone in Canada specialized in modding these things? Local would be even better :D It's a good sounding amp as it is, although a bit...
