Having just finished this build, I thought I would review the kit for the next guy trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on it. First off, this is a Princeton reverb with bigger transformers and 6l6 power tubes, so it comes in around 35 watts. The circuit itself is unchanged, so read Rob Robinette’s Princeton reverb page to really understand what’s going on under the hood. First off, it took around three weeks to get the kit. I assume this is because they build cabinets to order. Mine is a 1x12 in smokey tweed and black. It came well packaged and undamaged. There are no instructions. No layout, no pictures, no words of encouragement. I used the layout on their site and Rob Robinette’s layout in two tabs on my iPad. It might be nice to print a color layout so you can mark off parts as you go. The cabinet is top notch. The tweed feels like it is coated with lacquer or poly, not sure which. It’s pine construction, perfectly square, the tweed pattern lines line up, the seams are straight, the grill cloth lines are straight, and the hardware is securely fastened. Couldn’t have done better myself. The chassis is solid and well built, the faceplate holes line up perfectly. Note: the faceplate and holes are not to original spec, the knobs are stacked tightly towards the left. This leaves plenty of room for a mid pot, switches, etc for desired mods. That being said, I would (and did) build it stock and get it running before making mods. Looking at the parts, the cap can was back ordered and took another week to come. There is no cap can clamp, so measure the diameter and order one. There’re weren’t enough bolts and nuts to properly fasten everything, you can scavenge from around the shop or grab a box of whatever is needed at your local hardware store. The transformers are...heavy...not sure how you would determine the build quality without opening them up. The OT did not line up with the holes, I’m assuming the chassis was punched for a standard OT, so you will need to drill. The eyelet board material was fiberboard, perfectly fine, but missing one eyelet. The tube sockets are kind of cheap so if you are going to roll tubes, they may not hold up long term. If you change your tubes once every year or two, they’re probably fine. Capacitors look really cheap, no name brand with the yellow wrapping a little loose. Probably work fine but may need a cap job a few years. Pots and jacks are also no name, but. They work fine. Again, I expect them to last a few years before replacing them. The tubes are no-name Chinese tubes. I’ll use them out of the gate but will probably replace them after six months. The build went fine. Go slow and double check your work every few minutes. It’s particularly easy to miss a wire or connection on the back of the board. I like to populate the chassis, then the board, then connect the wiring between the two. Go through Rob’s new amp startup procedure to find issues without causing damage. The amp came with a Weber 12f150, which I requested to be broken in. It sounds stiff to me, and the bottom end became more present after a couple hours so I don’t know if they actually did the break-in or not. It’s a well loved blackface speaker and sounds pretty good to me, but I don’t yet know if I’ll keep it or try some other options. The amp sounds fantastic, even at low volume. Everything I hoped for. That being said, I was on the fence between a scratch build. I had my parts list together, planned to build my own cab, use Allen transformers, a Hoffman board, etc... but this kit was so much less cash. Eventually the budget won out. They do cut corners on some parts, but I don’t think the tone is in any way compromised...just expect to replace some things sooner rather than later. All in all I expect most hobbyists will be quite pleased with the results. EDIT: a couple other things I meant to mention... It comes with springs instead of a bag for mounting the reverb tank, I’m making a bag to keep it clean and protected. All the small parts come in a bag and are unlabeled. If you don’t know your resistor and capacitor codes you will need to look them up or measure with a meter. Also, the snap in place power receptacles are fine but not super tight. I intend to treat them with care.
