it’s people like you who motivate me to start making amps! I want to build amps, that’s my biggest goal for electronics. Build an amp that already exists (from schematics and parts) and then make it better from that. I don’t want to build all of this crap into my amps either, there are to be no digital effects at all. Spring Reverb, etc. IF there are effects other than reverb then they will be built by hand on a board vintage style and will be great. Also, I want them to be friggen loud, BUT hold their tone at high volume. Peavey did it with the JSX amps, those things rock.
I’m going to start out with a combo though and some effect pedals and such. I’ve started building a few guitars and basses, they turned out really well for the tools that I have.
