Paul’s plexi stack

“Wonderful amp, great success. I’m very happy, a truly wonderful project, great design. The only problem is some of the red sharpy pen I used to draw out the inside of the tolex is leaching through to the top vent, and the hole I cut in the front of the cabinet is slightly too big …

Frank’s FBI combo

“Hi Barry. Project finished. Main timber is recycled architrave over 100 years old, the timber is Australian Red Cedar (Toona). This timber is not commercially available. The architrave is machined down so that I have planks 20 mm by 140 mm. To get the width of the panels I had to join the red cedar, …

Mike’s mahogany and bubinga combo

“I have attached some photos of the 18W which I built a while ago now. The cabinet is Mahogany and Bubinga stained cherry red I have put a lot of Sozo capacitors into it and every body who plays it wants one well done you for the kit.”

Jim’s Trainwreck project

“It’s a Trainwreck Express circuit adapted for Russian 6N2P preamp valves and 6P1P, known as the Thrifty Wreck, found the schematic and build info over at Sounds great incidentally, monster amount of gain on tap. Problem is now I’ve built this I have to build a full size Express.”

Derek’s BRG-covered combo

“All finished today.  The amp combo performs beautifully and joins the WF-55 combo I built last year.   They are very complimentary.  Thanks for making such great kits.  Very enjoyable to build. “It took quite a while of considering different ideas before I went for an unusual configuration as I wanted to have easy access …

Luke’s pine-n-mesh N5X

“Hi Barry. Finished the NX5 build and it works great, I’m impressed with the quality and value of the kit! The cabinet is pine stained with antique colour then varnished, and the grille is mild steel expanded mesh sanded and clear coated with car spray lacquer. Luckily we had a spare offcut of the mesh …

Matt’s AC4 project

“I found time this week to finish the amp and all is well. Since it’s mainly built with Amp maker parts (with the obvious exception of the chassis), I thought you might like to see the finished product: my ‘Oscillator to AC4’ project. The tremolo circuit was a bit of an afterthought, hence it’s unwieldy …

Jase’s phono preamp

“Hi Barry, just finished my phono preamp project thought you might like to see it as most of the parts came from you. I had one of your transformers from a previous project and ordered the other parts last week. I chose to house the transformer and a few other parts separate from the preamp …

Benjamin’s classic 2×10

“I recently built an N5X kit with a combo cabinet from Chris Uff, and I’m enjoying the new amp immensely. It is not only my first build, it’s my first-ever electronic project. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, just a classic combo in white tolex with black piping. I opted for a 2×10 configuration with …

Anton’s pine-housed N5X

“I hope all is well. Just thought I’d share a couple of pics of my amp build. It’s pine furniture board from Wickes. I’ll never be a cabinet maker but I’m pretty happy with it and more than happy with the sound, lovely in clean and a savage gain! It’s been a really good experience …

Edmunds Heritage tribute

“It’s a variant of an Ampeg Heritage B15 with 6SL7 preamp tubes and a 6L6GC output pair. I built it P2P from the schematic, with lots of parts from you. I’m very happy with it, I put some extra filtering in the DC heater line and the LED changes colour when you switch between fixed …
