finished the amp. had tons of help from tech support. They were always quick to answer questions and offer advice. All of the problems I had were my own doing, but they made it right. really pleased

Love the sound of this little amp. I took my time. Painted it yellow. Changed out the Chinese tube for a Tungsol. Running it through a 1X12 cab with a Jensen. Classic sound. Overdrives nice a higher volumes.

Use an "external tooth lock washer" between the
chassis and whatever you're grounding. It will cut
through the paint.

I just completed my Mod 102 kit. An excellent experience! I was delighted with the quality of components, clarity of instructions, and, perhaps most importantly, the sound of the amp. It is very loud - currently running into my Fender Twin Reverb cab (2x12) and very sweet! I will be running it into a new 1x12 cab with a new Celestion G12 M Heritage 'Greenback' when I get a case for the speaker (on order).

My only criticism (and something to look out for) is that the chassis is very nicely painted in gray gunmetal paint. Even following the directions to file all the holes, it is very hard to get a good ground connection at every point a terminal strip connects. I worried about this, and about 1/3rd of the way through the build, took an ohm meter to check all the connections, and as I had suspected, some of the connections were not great (9-10 ohms or so!) So I removed the terminal strips (with the components I had already soldered still attached) and scraped away the paint under the tabs of the strips to ensure a good connection. Re-testing showed virtually zero resistance. I'd strongly recommend scraping the paint away at all holes under the chassis before getting started on the build. Even better, suggest that Amplified Parts leave the inside chassis unpainted (at least around the important holes).

Aside that one criticism, I am delighted with the kit and with Amplified Parts. Everything was delivered promptly and they are a class outift. I'll probably try some of their other kits soon.

This amp is a blast to build and it sounds great.Very clear instructions and support online if you need it.

I had been looking for a tube amp kit for my first amp build and this kit was the perfect kit for me. Clear and concise instructions made this build both enjoyable and educational. No schematic reading skills are required, just follow the step-by-step instructions. I had it completed in 2 - 3 days and I am more than pleased with the sound.

I did use the online support, and they were both informative and responsive. Email responses were usually sent the same day, and never later than the next day.

I would highly recommend this kit for anyone looking for a tube amp kit.

This was my first tube amp build and it was extremely easy and fun to do. I admit that I don't have enough experience with other amp kits to compare it to, but I cant imagine having a better starting point for tube amps, and the tone controls are a cool plus.

Got the kit this week and finished it in about two days. Instructions and diagrams were excellent, would definitely recommend this kit for beginners. Fired up the amp for the first time and it worked perfectly. I am pretty impressed with the sound, has a nice tone and a lot more power than I would have expected.

just the idea of this is awesome! drive it with some p-90 dervish. dial to 10, strum chord, lean guitar against cabinet, walk across the room and have lunch while the noise self-perpetuates. music to my ears!!!!
