All tube amps can have LETHAL voltages inside, even if they are turned off, or unplugged. You must use extreme caution when working on any tube amp, or any equipment with high voltages. If you are not experienced, or lack the basic skills needed to build and test a tube amp kit, then do not buy one until you gain the necessary skills to do so.
The assembly or repair of any tube amp will require the use of basic and specialized tools and equipment, such as soldering equipment, multimeters, variac, drills, and other hand tools. If you do not have the tools or ability, please consider having a kit built for you, or get experienced help.
The assembly of a tube amp kit does not mean that it will work correctly the first time. You may follow the schematic or layout drawing perfectly, and still have issues such as no output, noise issues, or hums and buzz. Part of building tube amps is being able to troubleshoot problems. My amp kits do not include step by step instructions, nor do they include troubleshooting advice. There is plenty of information on the web to read and become familiar with the construction of most clone guitar amp kits. Take the time to inform yourself, and best decide the level of project you are able to take on.
Any components or tubes sold on this website should only be used in circuits that will operate within the limits of the components. It is up to the builder or repair technician to determine the suitability of each application, and to do so with best practice procedures in mind.
