Guitar amplification is about so much more than volume.

rise against the solid state amplification is a journey through the heart and soul of classic vacuum tube guitar amplifiers, and a belief that the right fingers on the right guitar through the right amp can be transcendental.

It’s a belief that the sum is more than the parts – that somehow a few well chosen transformers and resistors and capacitors can come to life when the electrons flow.

From stock clones to custom circuits I want to use this place to chronicle my attempts to harness the magic of the little glass bottles.

  1. Came across one of your champ clones for sale on The Gear Page. Seems like a great amp. Didn’t know about your PR clone till I got to your site. Can you provide rates for each and some info on the PR clone please? Also, what the turnaround time for an order? Thanks in advance.

    • Oh man, that Big Champ is a killer amp.

      I don’t really have a list of stock amps or set rates, per se. I just sort of build whatever takes my fancy and then sell ’em to build more. I think I remember selling (or trading rather) that big champ for somewhere around $400 which was basically what the parts cost. If I can find good deals on the parts, I price the builds accordingly. The PR clone would be in the $900 range.

      This is really more of a hobby than a business, but turnaround for an amp would likely be around 1-2 months.
