    ok, i realized i need a much smaller amp after lugging my "small" peavey TKO to a few rehearsals. (my main rig stays at my bands storage space when not in use :( )

    and after playing someones swr workingman's 10 i realized that's what i need.


    but...i am poor. could i build something similar? i'd have no problem cannibalizing some parts from my peavey if necessary. i'd like it to be around 100 watts and have a 10" speaker, and be kinda light. but if it's small i don't care if it's kinda heavy.


    also - i'm considering building an all tube head, or maybe seperate preamp and poweramp. i don't really know for sure...


    so my question is - can someone give me some links on amp building resources? advice? personal experience?


    i need to read alot to learn about something, so let me have 'em.

  2. I build my own tube stuff, and it's cheaper to buy what you want used, and then restore it. If you start from scratch, you're gonna pay a ton for the parts.
