Built my first tube amp over the past month.
Salvaged the power transformer and OT out of my Valve Junior and then built up the amp using Watts Tube Audio's 6V6 Valve Junior board. Double turret, orange drop caps with carbon comp resistors. Added a MV control since I live in an apartment.

A local cab builder and good friend of mine built up the cab for me in a trade. Built him up a CaveDweller + Rub A Dub reverb combo for the cabinet.

Cab is sealed, loaded with WGS Reaper 12" speaker.

Currently has a JJ 6v6 and a NOS RCA 12ax7 loaded in. Great stuff!







almost done the wiring on the inside:









This will be here tomorrow to put on the face!

My first build.  A firefly where I added a Marshall tone stack.

Crash145 - how did you do the labelling?

Skullservant - where did you get the plate from?

Nice work guys!

Here's the wiring in my Firefly.  Terminal strip style.

Cheap guitars, homemade amps and garage rock technique.  But I have fun.

Geoff. Nice and spacious layout. I learned the hard way that that is the way to do it. I just finished my first tube amp and used the smallest box I could find for some reason that must have made sense at some point. Cramming every thing in was a b***h!

Ah you did just fine.  My Champ hybrid looks like that too.  Populating the board is the easy part, it's getting all the jacks, pots, etc neatly connected that's the PITA.  Then you fire it up and poke around with a chopstick looking for hum sources....

I was getting a bit of parasitic ossilation with amp so I rewired it using point to point wiring except for the power section

The label is just a clear waterslide with a bunch of clear coat over it. 

I'm using an ECC99 output tube.

Hi,
my new 12ax7 12au7 amp head, based on Frequency Central's Obsessin, or mkI.
