such a relaxing video
I want to build myself an amp like that. Know nothing about it,never tried to achieve this. What are my chances. I mean i believe im handy, does that help?
The video had the opposite effect on me. It reminded me that I'd rather hit myself in the toe repeatedly with a hammer than build an amp. Build an outboard boat motor? Hell yeah....the parts are almost all large enough to see without a microscope.
Amp building, for me, is putting a head on top of a speaker cab and plugging it in.
If you want to get into building electrical gizmos, start with some cheap DIY pedal builds first. It does take some learned skills and manual dexterity of a particular kind... and the ability to keep your temper when you get pissed off at the damn Little things
Edit: It actually was fun to see the video.
As long as you strive for wholesome relaxation, no problem.
It's a whole new form of GAS so why not build yourself an amp!! I took these photos a few minutes ago, I'm refurbishing this 30 year old Marshall so you can build or refurbish in this hobby.
It looked like this a week or so back I gutted it.
Things have gotten out of hand when you reach this level of obsession...
If you have a good electrical back ground it will help a lot . Tubes have thar own rules of operation . Some people make it look easy
I watched this video and a few others a couple of years ago and got the bug. I do advise doing some research into how Tube amps work if you don’t have any prior experience. Most of these kits also come with wiring diagrams so you don’t really need to be able to read a schematic. TBH, I was a little overwhelmed when I originally watched this video and saw that you had to build the board and add the turrets yourself. My first build ended up being a 5 watt tweed Champ, the 5f1 circuit. I’ve built 7 amps since and only been shocked once You do have to be careful and be aware of where the high voltage is inside.
