    hello
    wandering on internet i sometimes stumble over nice looking low watt tube amps.
    (maybe a reason to make a sticky with build plans and diagrams to keep them all together?)

    so with a tube amp it would be my first to build and maybe you know better to build easy amps than the ones i link here.
    so i am looking for a amp build with normal parts that i can order from a parts store.

    I built a firefly and love it, it is 1.5 watt and breaks up easy which is just what I was looking for. Was my first build as well and a lot of fun. Pics of build can be seen
    here

    There is a site that will sell you a PC board but I ended up going with a turret board and a layout I had found when researching this very same question. Can't seem to find the layout on the net now though, sorry.

    Ordered parts from on line sources and got the chassis out of the trash, have fun!
