HI all,

Last year I decided to build my tube amp. After some searching I found this site ( http://www.ax84.com/ ). I decided to build the P1 amp.

A 5 Watts amp with TMB controls, Master vol, Gain, Standby switch.

You can see the evolution of the project here: http://www.jcayer.com/bricolages/amplip1.htm (sorry it's in french but there are pics ;) )

Good job!

It sure is satisfying playing music through something you built yourself, isn't it!

Jim

You bet.

I was a bit nervous just before the initial "firing-up" but everything went super.

I've been thinking about getting one of those kits too. Did you get the pre-punched chasis, or did you drill your own holes?

I chose to drill my own holes. But if I was to repeat, I would buy the pre-punched chassis. It was -20C :eek: when I work the chassis (drilling) in my unheated shed. And I didn't have all the appropriate tools so some of the bigger holes were enlarged with a dremel and are not perfectly round and I had to force some of the tube sockets in.

But the amp worked at the first power up so I must have done something good :D

Very nice jcayer...

It is really satisfying. I'm loving my Trinity sIII kit more every time I plug in. Now I want to build another one. Gotta find time & cash though. I'm also thinking of talking to Scott over at axeandyoushallreceive.com about some BYOC pedal kits. A full rig I built myself would be pretty cool. :DevilGuitar:
