Amp Maker: guitar amp kits and parts

Waterbeach - Cambridge - England - UK

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 14th October 2019
When I started my sabbatical last Autumn, I timed it so that Amp Maker would be closed during Brexit (March 29th). The idea was that by the time I reopened this October, the systems for VAT and Customs would have been addressed and finalised by the UK and EU. This has not happened, and the continued political incompetence means that UK businesses are still facing unknowns.

Unfortunately, for that reason, I am not ready to reopen Amp Maker this Autumn as I had planned. I am now back at the workshop and working on projects, but I am not taking orders nor shipping products. This is very annoying, as I don't like leaving customers waiting. But I do not want to start taking orders with unknown problems ahead.

But I am here and you will see changes on the Amp Maker site over the next weeks. I will be moving to a new host, so there may be a short period when the Web site is unavailable, but that shouldn't last long. As always, thanks to all customers and I expect to reopen in early 2020.

While Amp Maker is closed some of my transformers will be available to buy directly from the manufacturer: Primary Windings. The first is the 0-190-275V 20W mains transformer, and the next is the 15W single-ended output transformer. Others - including 5W and 18W output transformers - will follow.
