Ian’s long-awaited SE-5a

“It’s been five years or more since I purchased an SE-5a kit from you and, thanks to my incredible Dad rescuing it from the depths of my wardrobe, I thought you might like to see the finished article in all its glory! Could this be something of a gestation period record? As I’m sure you …

Mike’s SE-5a combo

“It’s finished! And it sounds great, I’m so pleased with it! Cab was a self build and my first ever effort, 18mm ply – fender brown oxblood grill cloth – top mount style just to be a bit different from my other (bought) amps which are front mounted! Managed to find the top vents on …

Garcia’s SE-5a 2×12 combo

“I send you some pictures of the amp finished, you can publish them if you want. It is a 2×12 combo, the furniture is made of spruce wood. I built it myself. Long ago, I transformed a Laney LC15R using pine wood and 12-inch speaker, but the SE-5a 5W has been much better in both …

Peter’s pine-box SE-5a

“Amp is all built and sounds great. I’m using it through a 2×12 Basson cab loaded with OEM Eminence speakers, and there is loads of top end available – a Telecaster bridge pickup requires the treble to be turned down a lot :). “I put the case into an 18mm pine box finished with Danish …

Dave’s rehomed SE-5a

“I had a spare 15W output transformer from you, and now thanks to the toroidal power transformer, I decided I was going to build an SE-10a into my current 10-inch combo cab with a spare EL34. “What to do now with all the SE-5a bits…? I had an old Stagg 15W Bass combo that wasn’t …

Will’s SE-5a combo

“I was playing through the SE-5a last night. I’ve started playing quite a lot now as I actually have a gig looming (first for 15 years). I’m getting married next year and me and some old band mates are regrouping to make a row. It was all the excuse I needed to spend silly money …

Kevin’s blonde SE-5a stack

“Just thought I’d send you a picture of the finished amp. I am really pleased with the quality of the kit you sent, and the build instructions were excellent.

Philippe’s military-grade combo

“I’ve sent you few pics of my amp, finished. It’s built in an old military woodbox. Good tone, like JTM45 (my other amp). Good to play at home.”

Henry’s loud SE-5a combo

“I just finished the case for my SE-5A kit, white tolex and some neon spray paints…tasteful 🙂 “The speaker is a Celestion Rocket and to my shame the case is made from MDF. I assembled it at first in a day as a temporary solution to protect the hard work inside and it was designed …

Steve’s hard-working SE-5a

  It was a delight to receive a CD through the post, and find that it’s ex-Dr Feelgood guitarist, Steve Walwyn’s latest solo album. Even more of a delight to read that the SE-5a features throughout the recordings. “I’ve built two of your amps now, an SE-5a and a PP-36 as well as restoring a …

Todd’s chunky combo

“I got in contact with Chris and he built me a Chunky Combo in black with white piping – see attached. I have to say, I enjoyed building the kit as much as I do playing through the completed combo! It’s loud enough, particularly with that G12H 30W speaker, that I can really annoy the …

Yves’ SE-5a combo

“Here is a picture of the amp I made out of the kit, fitted with one Eminence Copperhead 10-in (I wanted to keep it not too big) with a detuned cabinet design. It is has a nice clean sound at low gain setting and sort of grindy edge at hi gain nice for rock. I …

Jon’s SE-5a with VVR

“The SE-5a now has a VVR installed and a switchable headphone output (also used to drop the signal low enough to use the amp as a preamp for my Musicman 112RD Sixty Five). Now I get a decent valve preamp (Musicman is a horrible solid state preamp stage) and the sweet Musicman output.”
