    As Carl said above. Get your components from Valve Storm. Follow the Metro instructions. And, take your time.

    I've built and been very happy with kits from Valvestorm and Triode Electronics. I built a jtm45 from Valvestorm and a jtm50 from Triode.

    Edit: The Triode comes with ClassicTone iron and I used a ClassicTone PT and the Metro-Spec Heyboer OT with the Valvestorm jtm45 build. Both are exceptionally great amps!

    I see BYOC sells a kit at a nice price. They use classic tone transformers and Tunsol tubes. Worth a look. If it were me I'd get a Ceriatone, what a deal!

    I think the BYOC kits are just jtm45 based and the 1974 18watt TMB variant.

    Yeah, I got all excited that somebody else had a JMP50 kit... Nope, just JTM45 in that wattage range. Kinda frustrating because everybody seems to have a JTM45 and a 1959. The 1987 gets ignored.

    Oh man, I need another project like I need a hole in my head, but I'm going to do something like this soon. Just can't decide which model to build. I love my 1959SLP RI and 1987XL. What else is there?

    Build yourself a 2203 or 2204 and you'll have yourself the holy trinity of Marshalls.

    Seriously though, look at Triode. After building a Triode kit and a Valvestorm kit I'm torn which to go to for my next build.

    I've used Classictone with several amps and been very happy but I really like the Metro Spec Heyboer iron I used in my Valvestorm JTM45 build.

    Merren all the way. My RJS built JMP50 rips! All Merren iron in it. Worth the dough. Bigtime.....
