I just wanted to write and tell you I got everything working last night,
no problem.  I am blown away by the sound of this amp.  1/2 watt is indeed still plenty loud.  I ran it through 2x12 vintage 30's and man, I just can't say enough how happy I am with this little guy.  I am going to be selling my Mesa Maverick 2X12 since I only play at home these days. This Gilmore Jr is going to be getting a workout though, and my 18 watt clone might get jealous!

Thanks for a great Customer Service that surpasses anything I've ever experienced.  You really have heart for this.

Just wanted to let you know--IT'S ALIVE!

OMG it sounds good!  I was playing through an EH Holy Grail and a
Reverend Alltone 12" speaker (a lot like a Jensen,) and it sounded very much like a vintage tweed amp!  MUCH richer harmonically than my Champ clone!  For now, I've got a smile on my face like a kid at Christmas.  Thanks for the help and enthusiasm.  This is a really great kit, and you've been great to work with!

With the original 6n1p output tube, the amp sounds a *lot* like a dimmed Marshall Plexi, including easy pinch harmonics, sustain, and overtones.  Lots of fun to play and relatively easy on the ears.

These days its hard to find someone with good Customer Support.  I
appreciate what you do!

The best thing about the amp is how you can set the volume so you can get that little bit of breakup if you hit the strings a bit harder, if you know what I mean?  Then you can play clean or get a bit of that breakup just by how you play.

I really do dig on the sound that this little thing produces.  The distortion is really nice and I see what you mean by it having it's own vibe/mojo to it.  I have most of the parts to do the Marshall mod, but I don't know if I want to do it or not.  I wish there was a way I could put in a switch to go between the Marshall and the Fender voicings, that would be great.  Well, man, I just wanted to let you know that I put in the attenuator and I really enjoy the sound.  Thanx for all the help.

It sounds great through the Weber Blue Dog.  It chimes.  It's my poor
man's AC30!  A kit with this tone stack and an El84 will sound fantastic.

The Vox tone stack mod took on almost a filter like response (like my Rat pedal or a fixed wah pedal.)  One thing though, there was a bit of volume drop.  Since the mod sounds so good, I'd guess this is normal.  I seem to be getting a lot less preamp drive (which is good, it gives it the chimey sound) which may account for the lower volume.

I really appreciate all your help, and I'm seriously considering
ordering another kit to build in the "Marshall" voicing (possibly with
an added preamp stage...).  I LOVE how I'm able to rework this amp until it suits me perfectly.  I haven't had this much fun in a long, long time!

I received the kit in the mail today.  WOW...looking at the parts...the
components are top of the line...the chassis is a work of art all by itself.  I cannot wait to dig into the build.  Thank you for providing high quality at an extremely reasonable cost.

I got the kit yesterday and everything looks great.  The quality of everything looks excellent, and the manual is very well done.  I have set up a project notebook with notated schematics, and some newsgroup messages about the build.  Let the games begin!

Thanks for offering a great kit with great service.

WOW!  This little bugger is LOUD through a 4x12!  I find the amp very easy to control by leaving it dimed and using the vol/tone on the guitar to get the sounds I want.  Thanks again for providing an outstanding product.

Last Friday, the kit finally arrived to my home in Spain. My first
impression is very positive: the instructions are very (extremely!)
detailed and all the components are classified and very well packed.

I have to say again,.... HOW MUCH I LOVE THE AMP !
