The beauty of building your own, is you can fix the flabby bottom end. It's just a couple cap size reductions and the right speaker.Originally posted by Boogie92801
Thanks guys. I want to make a head. No bells or wistles just the basics. I am not familiar with the 18 watt. But the 5E3's I have played sound great except they are a bit flabby in the bottom end. That is why I was looking at the 18watt. I have also looked into a 5F4 wich looks like it would fit the bill.
So how ambitious a project is this?
Ones a Marshall the other is a Fender. Tighter, crunchy aggressive vs Fat smooth saturation. Now this is just my opinion.Originally posted by Boogie92801
Can you describe the diffrences in tone between the two?
Which one is easier to build?
I dunno, but unless you're thinking "I'd really like to build an amp!" it would be pointless to build one. It doesn't save you money, especially when you factor in the value of your time.Originally posted by Boogie92801
A used Carmen Ghia is the same price as a kit and it's a plug and go situation and I am sure that the Dr. can make a better amp than I can.
What was I thinking?
