So I decided to build an amp, from parts. Partially due to the confidence gained from fixing a jcm800 and thinking "how hard can it be".
Anyway, I've settled on blogging about it, and anyone interested can follow it here:

I'll post updates in this thread as well as I go along!
So far I have all the parts on order from various places, with the only bits mising being the headshell, grills and actual tubes, but I'll get there in due course! First deliveries of substantial parts are due today as well, so pretty excited!
What have I decided to build? A slo clone. Always wanted to try one, so now I'm going to just build one seeing as they rarely if ever pop up, and when they do, I just don't have the cash.
