I built one of the first kit-version Caldera amp heads in order to take photos for the build manual. That amp is now up for sale.

In brief:
  • 30 watts from a pair of EL34s (fixed bias, dual bias adjust trim pots)
  • high* (*ish) gain preamp design with switches for era (70s/80s), bite (3-position 'bright' switch that boosts mids as well as highs), punch (gain boost), clip ('soft' diode clipping for more distortion), and Fat (fine tune the bottom end).
  • optional buffered effects loop.
Pricing and configurations (all pre-built without loop):
  • chassis only, no tubes or cab: $1,100
  • chassis and tubes: $1,275
  • chassis, tubes, and cab: $1,500
- add loop to any configuration: $100

Price for full amp configuration ($1.5k) is $377 off price of the non-kit Caldera, and since I made this one the only difference is the face plate.

For many other details, see this kit build thread: NAKD...: V2 Amplification 'Caldera"
