    I live in Thailand and nice valve amps are rare there. I want something quite small but with a classic tone.

    A friend of mine builds valve hi-fi amps for a hobby. I'm handy with a saw and drill and could build a cab. Do you think it would be feasible to build an amp between us?

    Are plans/diagrams available for building something like a Blues Junior. Where can I get parts in the UK? I can bring stuff back when I visit Britain.

    Any suggestions and advice much appreciated!

    Wouldnt Ceriatone (almost literally) be up your alley?
    I have heard much ampy goodness about them. I dont order from them because they ship from Malaysia

    Thanks! I'd looked at kits before, but they included the cab and were expensive. I hadn't seen this one. This looks like a great site, and as you say, in my 'neck of the woods'.
