  • Reasonably priced hand wired amp? Do they exist?

    I'm looking to get a new head.

    50-100watts. Need it LOUD & chunky & lots of headroom. Something that you can feel to your bones.

    I have an EHX English Muff'n so it's pretty much an old Marshall-esque tube preamp.

    No bells & whistles but spring reverb would be nice but not necessary.

    No high gain - 70s heavy rock tones - Hiwatt or Marshall Plexi style.

    New. Nothing used.

    Even a pre-assembled kit without a shell would do. I've got nice NOS preamp tubes.

    Suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks!

        Why do you specifically want a hand wired amp?

                        I heard they sounded pretty tits too.



                        Ryan will completely disagree with me, but I say spend money and get what you want. **************** Ceriatone. I'd look at Metropolis, Germino, Aiken, Komet, Mojave... The list goes on. Something sexy that noone else has.

                            Actually, I agree. Amps are like women. Get the one you want.



                            I do like using some of Ceriatone's components like their chassis/faceplates. You can't beat their prices for what you're getting.



                            Lots of great builders out there. Some of them are overpriced but some of them totally live up to the hype.
