    Yes, Building replicas of vintage amps is definitely a thing - and Yes, there are kits to make home-made amps. Step on over to the Shock Brothers DIY Tube amp forum and have a look at what some of us are working on!

    I have two 4x12 cabs. One Marshall ORI412A and a Park 1960B copy. Either will work. I'm currently using the Marshall cab and running the amp as the wet side of a wet/dry pair. The dry amp is currently a Blues Deluxe.

    Have you compared it to your TMTR?
    How would you describe the difference between the Fender clean and the Marshall clean?

    I know there's a bit of difference, but I just had to poke a little fun. Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna go Marshall over blackface every day of the week.

    I love my little Origin's cleans. But, I'm afraid I'm still leaning a good bit towards my big tweed amps for everything. Maybe a big Marshall would sway my opinion? As my mother used to say, 'That's why they make chocolate AND vanilla!'

    If you’ve got a place you can play one, even if it’s at home, I highly recommend a JTM45. I’ve passed on a few I should have bought. If I come across another smoking deal, I don’t know that I’ll be strong enough to go home without it.
