Trifly Build

So I have an eye to building an 18 Watt Plexi but was a complete noob when it came to building an amp. I decided to start small and opted for a Trinity Trifly for my first build.

Truth be told, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. That said, I was a complete noob and I DID make a couple of mistakes. So, credit is definitely due to Stephen Cohrs at Trinity Amps. I had heard Stephen was a good guy, very supportive, and it turns out that this is very true indeed (thanks Stephen!!!). It is VERY rare in this day and age for a company to have top-notch customer support.

Final note: I am not in any way associated with Trinity other than as a first-time consumer; just telling it like it is.

I have posted a video highlighting the various stages of the build and included in the video some guitar clips of the completed amp. I am no professional (guitar player, sound technician or videographer). Just sharing for other noobs who might be thinking of diving into this.

Cheers to all and may the wind be ever at your back.

Thanks Brett and thanks for letting me know about the link. Fixing it now.

Very cool. I have a friend who has an Old Flame and he really likes it.
Yeah, I had heard good things about Stephen. His reputation is the reason I opted to go with a Trinity for my first build.
At 0.73 cents to 1, its become a very expensive hobby.
$400 for 2 weeks of groceries? I guess we don't eat quite that well. That's roughly about what we spend in a month (though we also eat out from time to time).

In any case, it is an expensive world we live in, particularly when we are shopping using US dollars. That said, I looked at a lot of kits and the Trinity kits are competitive with others on the market. Of them, Ceriatone was an appealling choice...particularly for the JTM 45 circuit. However, for an 18 Watt Plexi circuit with quality components (Heyboer OT, Sozo caps, etc.), Trinity had the best value. And they're a Candian company. It will work out to about $1000 Canadian for an 18 Watt plexi by the time I'm done. As I said, it a very expensive hobby.
