Parts shortages – valves

Due to the Russian war in Ukraine, and the sanctions that have followed, the global market for valves is disrupted. Unfortunately, I have had to temporarily remove the valves from sale with the kits.

Some suppliers (new and old) are having trouble fulfilling orders promptly due to CV19-related staffing/etc. This means that the next batch of …

Amp Maker is reopening. I have ‘rebooted’ the whole business from shopping cart to courier systems. Just as with a computer reboot, the idea is to get rid of the stuff that doesn’t work, and restart with a clean sheet.   Several important things have changed: Working week: Amp Maker now runs for 3 days …

About Amp Maker

Amp Maker has been supplying guitar amp kits and parts since 2005. The first amp kit I launched was the SE-5a (5W), followed by the PP-18 (18W) and WF-55 (4W).
