In 2006 I bought my first tube-amp (kit from ampmaker).
I very quickly boxed it up, and used it for many years. Other builds and interests sort off pushed aside.
But last year I've descided to do a make over on it, and give it the glory it deserves.

This is before




This is after

Tolex covering is not so difficult to manage than it looks at the first sight...

Love the twe-tone combos! Need to get into building amps myself. Just haven't the money or time at the moment to sink into my first one. It will be done eventually though.

Floor-mat at the front entrance to my former place of employment. Oh... the irony.

It's just (to) expensive IMHO.

Although, maybe I can buy som left-overs and mix them together. Really like the two-tone's.

Here is my first amp build. It's a 5f1 I built from a mojotone kit. I bought the cabinet from a builder on ebay, I wish I could make a cabinet this nice... I'm planning on building a cab for my next amp build.

Thank you guys,

Natural wood finishes can be amazing looking also... For the one who really knows to do it nicely ! I must confess that I never could. Conversely, I found Tolexing more easy to achieve with a really presentable look than natural wood finishes, but it's me.

I do not find Tolex so much costy - at least here in europe - considering the quality of the final result that can be obtained quite easily. Have a look at tubetown.de : it's where I purchase my Tolex and my glue. Nonetheless, some money need to be devoted for making a good finish on an amp : its not cheap, that's true.

And yes, the Two-Tone formulae plus piping has something like an "upmarket" look... In fact, it's not much more difficult to do than a single color Tolexing : you need to be very precise in your matching cuts, it is only necessary to work carefully and make a good preparation before.

Hi,
finished my last build, this time with a circuit similar to the 1W marshalls,

and all fits inside a 1590b, but I'm using subminiature tubes.






Cheers,
Thomas

There's nothing special about this power amp.

One active device: mosfet
Load: resistive (22 Ohm)

Left pot control: Schade feedback
Right pot control: bias

Left switch: bright switch

It does OD nicely!



In: yellow
Out: blue

Cheers.
