As you may know by now, all classes have been rescheduled for the fall.This has created a unique opportunity. We have a limited number of amp kits that were to be used in the cancelled build classes. We decided to offer them for sale as many are trapped at home and also for those for whom it is not feasible to attend a class.

   These kits are the exact package you would build in the class. Because we already prepared these for the classes, they are partially built. For the class, we do the time consuming, icky stuff. We don’t view screwing transformers to a metal box and wiring some of the difficult, frustrating internal chassis stuff as fun and educational, so it is already done for you. With each kit you receive a ton of photos, every part needed and some older building videos from a few years ago. The videos do not exactly match the new kits and these kits are quite improved, but are very useful as a guide. Because we are not there to guide you through every step, I strongly recommend you have some previous soldering skills. This not a totally noob project. It is unlike any other amp kit in that it is very much a “boutique” level project. The circuit is NOT a clone of anything. It is a truly custom hotrodded Marshall which is on the level with “boutique” amps costing thousands more. Below is the pricing and options info.

20 watt model:
$900 Chassis kit complete without the cabinet and tubes
Add $100 for four preamp tubes and a matched pair of JJ 6V6 power tubes
Add $150 for the nice black head box
Shipping is additional. Typically between $50 and $70 depending on options and location.

50 watt model:
$980 Chassis kit complete without the cabinet and tubes
Add $115 for four preamp tubes and a matched pair of EH EL34 power tubes
Add $150 for the nice black head box.
Shipping is additional. Typically between $50 and $70 depending on options and location.


Bruce Egnater Amp Building Classes and Kits

The cost for the building class is $1500 for the 20 watt (2x6V6) model or $1650 for the 50 watt (2xEL34) version. Both are identical except for the tubes and transformers. This is the total for everything and you walk out with the amp in the photos. We supply all the parts, tools, head box etc. We even feed you lunch. It does NOT include  travel or lodging costs so you need to get yourself there and find a place to stay. Payment can be made through PayPal, check or MO in the mail or credit card. You must phone to use the credit card at 248-541-9100. Fill out the information on the contact page so we may send you the official registration form or email me at begnater@aol.com. Also, click on the "BUILD CLASS" tab at the top for more information.

We have been offering the classes for over 12 years. In that time, we have met countless interesting folks, made quite a few new friends hopefully helped some to continue on to bigger and better things This is a fantastic experience for anyone interested in guitar amplifiers either as a hobby or even a potential career. In fact, some of our students have gone on to make careers in the Music business and we would like to think we helped inspire them.  We hope you can attend some day and join our family of amp builders.

Thanks!!   Bruce and  Terri Egnater
