  1. Buff and Polish - Drill Foam Pads

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    For the 2 guitars I have that need painted, wet-sanded and polished, I don't want to spend a lot on more tools like a buffer. I was looking at foam pad kits for the drill instead. I was looking at a kit like...
  2. So what's the best deal on a bare bones 5F1 Champ kit?

    Amps and Cabs
    Is there even such a thing (bare bones as in, no tubes, no speaker, no cabinet, not even the chassis or turret board; litterally just the bones aka electronic parts)? I also don't need pots and jacks and wire (got all that), but there's not likely to be a kit that doesn't include that stuff...
  3. Build Thread AX84 SEL - Build Log

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I'm embarking on my first scratch build, having done a kit amp at this time last year (build log starts on post 9 here ). I looked at a lot of kits from a lot of makers, but then decided to go...
  4. Build Thread Ceriatone "Mutchless" Spitfire build

    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...
  5. Build Thread Herzog Project

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Despite my impoverished state, I am longing to build a new project and I am quite obsessed lately with the mysterious "Herzog" by Gar Gillies (and Randy Bachman). Aside from Randy's recordings and Gordie Johnson's stuff (love his tone!), I can't find any real demos of Herzogs online. I would...
  6. Build Thread JTM45 build

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    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...
  7. Build Thread Weber 6A20 (Fender Deluxe Reverb) kit build

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    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...
  8. Tube Amp Kit's

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    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.
  9. Build Thread Weber Amp Kit

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    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...
