    I can't wait to attempt to build one of these bad boys, then botch it horribly and sell off the parts on Ebay for a fraction of what I paid!

    Jimmy- Ted Weber has a list of builders on his site.
    Sould be able to get a guy to build one for around $200.(?)
    This is based on SVT

    Wow - that looks like big fun. And 200 watts tube would be just about right for the gigs. Thank you, Weber!

    Hope they're still available in 2010 when I have disposable income again.

    put me on the list. I don't really *need* one, but I'd really, really like one!

    I wonder what sort of enclosure he'll make for it - Ala Hiwatt or more like Ampeg? If it's tubes up (rather than down) I'm thinking more like Hiwatt or Sunn...

    Of course Ill totally redo the preamp, something like an swr/thunderfunk, but tube based vs. opamp based.

    Hi.

    ^ My guess would be an octal driver.

    Regards
