Anyone here ever built a tube amp?

I was looking over Torres website, (, and I wonder if anyone has built one, not necessarily a Torres but any kind, and can talk a little about how it came out. The pitfalls, any advice, etc.

I've thought about trying. Its an expensive experiment though. Its actually pretty dangerous stuff if you're not confident in you're electrician skills.

You need to go to and do a search on tube amp kits. Many folks there have built kits, and many boutique amp builders post there. You can also find your way to other more specific amp building sites like

I'm planning on doing my first kit in the next six months or so, and I have been reading up on the subject of circuit design in the meantime.

Hope you give the Gear Page a try. Great folks over there and drama is kept to a minimum. I'm registered there under the same user name. Good luck in your endeavor!
