Ok guys - for anyone who needs tube and needs it your way - a bass amp kit is coming here are some thread links http://www.webervst.com/kits/messages/18348.html http://www.webervst.com/kits/messages/17861.html With 6 kt88's looks like some adventurous people might be able to get near 300W levels (depending on the Trannies) Ted estimates the amp to weigh about 60-70lbs. and it looks like it's based off the SVT circuit. It will not be an easy build but for anyone looking sending this amp to a competent builder might be a much more attractive option when compared to current high end offerings. Once again depending on the trannies - other components could be added or subbed for "improved sound quality" or any other fru-fru percieved benefits. It'll most likely be packaged in a brit-marshall type box - so those of you waiting for a Pig kit - this may be the ticket looks wise. Though I wouldn't be surprised if ted actually gets a more Ampeg-y looking box for the thing. Either way I do not see this kit topping $1000 for components which means for a very HIGH estimate you could have the thing built and shipped to you for $1500. Could this be the sleeper tube amp of 2007? Given Weber's vintage tastes and style - I say yes. Of course durability and sound quailty rest solely on the builder. However, it seems weber is making it easier for people to build the amps they love while not decreasing the skill level involved. I say go Ted for fronting the expense to fill a niche that just much have a significant return from him.
