A nice quick fix and flick project. A very cheap find on Trademe was the JTM60 3 x 10. Very similar to the 1990’s JTM30, it was loud and the reverb was horrible.

I always wanted a big Marshall but could never find the one I liked. Then I discovered Ceriatone. They had a hand wired JCM800 dual volume schematic for a hand wired amp. After doing the math and finding some bargain deals the project was a go!

Yet another amp project build. This time it started with dad being given a bunch of old Jansen amps from old trades at the Rockshop. Included in the stash was a 1975 Jansen Bassman 50.

The amp the started it all. The 1974X is a very popular build amongst DIY amp builders. Some say it holds that classic Marshall tone.

Technically the second amplifier I built, the 5F2A Fender Champ build was created out of left over parts. I had a bunch of leftover wood, tolex and fibreboard from the 18 Watt 1974X build ( and the green from dad’s build).
