Amp Maker status: 2nd Sept – Reopening this week ->
Test and measure...
Once your amp is built, it’s ready for testing. Your kit instructions tell you how to test for safety and how to check that everything is within spec and ready for action.
Plug in, turn it up and rock out!
What are you waiting for? Grab your favourite guitar and your best riffs and play. That’s Paul on the right, rocking out on his personally tweaked 18W Amp Maker kit.
Hear and see the amps...

Watch Luke's time-lapse build
Lots of Amp Maker customers have shared their builds on social media. Luke sent a link to a time-lapse video of his WF-55 based project that you can watch on Youtube.
Amps of all shapes and sizes
Important safety notice
Building any electronic device is potentially hazardous, and almost all of the Amp Maker kits are mains powered. Being valve-based, there are also very high AC and DC voltages inside the amplifier.
For this reason, none of the projects are suitable for children (under the age of 18). I will always encourage young engineers and hobbyists to get into electronics, but it must be in the company and supervision of an adult.
In addition, amp building is something that needs attention to detail, and that level of detail is impossible to get across on a mobile phone screen and many smaller tablets. So please make sure you have a full-size computer screen or a 100% print-out to use when following the PDF construction manuals.
