About This Web Site

This is my little blog/website showing some of the amps I have built or modded and what I’m working on now. Years of nutty amp building is documented here. With the amps I build I gravitate toward amps that are fairly versatile and can get good cleans as well as good overdrive. I’m not too into building clones so most amps I’ve built are a mix of different bits of circuits and ideas from other amps and then tweaked….(and tweaked and tweaked some more).
I’m also not really into fancy cabinets or slick face plates, just doesn’t interest me. Many of my amps look fairly questionable but that’s because I really just care about how they sound.

Because of that most of these amps could be considered prototypes and I do a lot of experimenting with them. More than once the complete circuit will be redone….multiples times. That sounds redundant but my point is…I go through a lot of solder. Anyway, that is my official excuse for messy wiring. 😉

I have been building amp that vary from 1 watt up to about 50. I find them all interesting and they all have their place, usually somewhere in a closet or my garage.

The links to the amps are on the right. When you click on the links you’ll see the schematic, pictures and sometimes there will be clips. Feel free to leave a message and if you build any of these designs I’d love to hear about it.
