WF-55

Graham’s Tweed pairing

“Hi Barry. Hope all is good with you in these strange times. Ages ago I sent you a photo of my WF-55 amp. I then made a speaker cab covered in a matching tweed material. To finish the job I have now made a ‘Tweedocaster’.

Mike’s Park/WF-55 combo

“Here is a picture of the finished WF-55 housed in a recycled Park practice amp box and using the Park/Marshal speaker. I might tidy the front end up later with a new front panel.”

Alvaro’s WF-55

“I built a WF-55 kit some years ago. Finally it’s completely finished, in a combo which I built with a friend of mine. The speaker is a 10″ Jensen Ceramic C10Q, and the amp has some mods like fat switch, VVR, impedance selector.”

Greg’s WF with valve test clips

“Just finished the 4watt tweed sounds great. I like the Tung-Sol 6v6 but they all sound good; just think the Tung-Sol has a creamy blues sound and using a 8in WGS ceramic speaker helps.”

Justin’s WF with KT66

“Kit arrived yesterday, everything is perfect and I’ve managed to get all the hardware mounted into the donor chassis. Because of the way I had to fit everything in, the input jack is quite far away from V1, so I had to add a wire running from the socket to the valve as well as …

Derek’s tall WF-55 combo

“All finished now and testing today. Sounds really good and warm even without the Celestion Gold 10 having worn in yet. Tried a number of guitars through it and all sound good with nice tonal variations. Attaching some pics of the combo in build.”

James’ rich brown combo

“Thought you might like to see a couple of pics of my finished WF-55. What an amazing sounding amp and so easy to build with your instructions! I’ve built mine as a combo with a 10in Celestion Greenback inside. The combo is the bare minimum width to fit the chassis, held in place with Allen …

Richard’s WF-55 head

“You may remember a while back I bought one of your plain cabs for the WF-55 amp. Here’s a couple of pics of the finished article, covered in vinyl ‘Tolex’ and lined inside with self adhesive foil to help with screening. It presented a bit of a ‘learning curve’ as they say as it was …

Peter’s altered WF-55 layout

Peter wanted a WF-55 combo, but with the valves pointing down instead of forwards. So he did a bit of metalwork, as shown here.”What a beautiful amp. The tone is lovely and it is virtually noiseless. As promised I have attached some photos to show how I built it, using the supplied chassis, so that …

Luk’s WF-55 with stop-motion build video

  “Here’s a timelapse video of me building the WF-55 guitar amp with my own modifications: tone control, gain control, bass control, bass boost, treble boost, negative feedback switch, impedance switch. “The background track is me playing the amp through a 2×12-inch alnico gold cab. I’m playing Fender Select SSS Strat.”

Toby’s WF-55 where tweed meet carbon fibre

“Finished at last, hope you like the pics. Got to have a bit of carbon!! A 2.8mm carbide drill bit and a belt sander is the trick with the board, its similar to working with carbon in that it just blunts normal drills and blades quickly.”

John’s WF-55 combo

“Here are some photos of my WF-55, now that I’ve finished the cabinet, and tweaked the amp a little. The cabinet matches my boutique 18-watt amp, so I also have a 1×12 speaker cab that will match the WF-55 if I want a fuller sound than the 10-inch Jensen I’ve paired with the new amp. …

Mark’s WF-55 stack

“The WF-55 I made this year is performing brilliantly and has been completely problem free. Here it is in the head I made for it. The cab has a 12-inch Celestion blue. All made from old pine shelving, cheap sofa cover leatherette and a chrome tile edging strip for trim. “The Celestion blue is really …
