On sale for $149 plus 15% coupon = $127 plus 8.9% tax. This deal gets me thinking so I start to research. The research shows that it needs at least a new speaker and tubes so another $60 or so. Now with tax we are around $200. I can build a 5f1 for $250. Bugera has their BC15 with 8" speaker for $129 shipped. Their V5 is $199 shipped. The V5 is an el84 amp, has an 8" speaker and reverb. It sounds good in the reviews. I am sure there are other options as well. I will probably do nothing now and eventually build the 5f1. Comments?
