    I love watching a good kit build. Will be living vicariously through you on this one, looks like you're off to a great start. Nice tube socket wiring!

    Very interested in the result Gary. I've been eye-balling this kit for a couple weeks now. I may be asking a few questions as you go, hope you don't mind.

    The few demos of it on Youtube look very promising.

    I just came in here to ask if you have ever enjoyed a glass of "Pliny the Elder" IPA?

    Hey so what is this amp? I looked on the site and all I could figure out is that it's 20 watts.

    Looking forward to the final build and some clips!

    Might be a silly question, but does the Ceriatone come with an instruction booklet, or just the drawings and you have to figure it out?

    Ceriatone kits normally come with a schematic and layout drawing.

    The kits themselves come in varying levels of components and priced accordingly.

    Now a ratsnest of wires to be sorted out and hooked up...Changed the mid tone cap to a .047uF, too.
    Didn't come with a schematic, just the layout drawing on the website.

    I'll be interested in how you like the sound. There's a thread on the Marshall where a guy who just bought one only liked one setting.

    Would this be a good option for a first build?
