    I miss my pignose g40v amp.

    I would like to diy something similar, can anyone point me in the right direction on where I can get a diy kit to assemble with a similar sound profile?

    I was reading some say it is similar to a tweed baseman?

    My background is coming from the arcade and pinball world as a tech, and I have recapped a few Wurlitzer jukebox tube amps. Rats nests and wax caps :(

    Any help would be appreciated.

    AFAIK it is a 5f6a Bassman circuit. Been stalking one.
    Building must be fun, but if it were I, I'd clone something that would otherwise be rare and expensive...not a $250 amp.
    You'll spend more building it.

    It seems I see the Pignose amps cheap a lot. I would buy one, working or not, and start there. Far cheaper than buying all the parts separately. Typically I have about $550 in the parts for an amp, cab, speaker separately etc.

    There are a couple on Ebay right now, one for $235 "buy it now".

    I see that. I'm not going fo rare, if I am spending 1k... I'm buying a pinball machine.

    I think I found what I was looking for.

    Sorry for posting in the wrong section.

    I got a G40 for $100 a few years ago.
