I guess I'm asking......... where do I start, and if there are any kits available?
Check this out!
Check out Metro amps. The forum is great and it looks like these guys have realy done their homework.
Looks like you answered your own question. Nik (ceria) has a good rep and his prices are reasonable.
These are built in malaysia, I'm guessing. Looks like a decent clone for cheap, but you are saying it's not a scam?
Might want to check out this site, most all who offer parts and kits can be found here plus there is a wealth of information to be gained
Nik @ CieraTone in Malaysia is about as far from a scam as you can get.
Nik is a stand up guy. Great product, great price. He's a regular participant on 18watt.com.....
My little brother is a missionary in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia right now, Nik is real, he is there.
OK, sorry for implying the negative. I may call the man and order one of these.
I'm just very cautious and don't want to get burned.
Nik is a member of the JTM45 Group (link above)as well as the 18 Watt Group and has provided his products to many happy customers
Guess the main thing if you choose to buy his kit is to have adequate shipping insurance..
I just joined the JTM-45 group so I can find out more about this amp and kits like it. It sounds like they could be alot of fun to build and play! Not withstanding the fact that I've always wanted a JTM-45 as well!
Ted Weber is putting together a JTM-45 kit. Ted's a great guy to deal with! Look in the "kits" section,
Excellent! This is where it all started for JTM45 clones AFAIK. You'll find many choices for chassis, turret boards, great iron selection and other related items such as cosmetics ect so you can make it your way
Lotta great info in the files section .
Doug Hoffman is good and reliable. Ted Weber is much respected. I've never ordered from Thundertweak, but they look good.
i have a started jtm45 project that i'm going too have too abandon
so far its a chassis,tube sockets,wired turret board, pots, knobs, filter caps and filter cap rings and the input jacks.
all the stuff is top notch
up too this point it is overbuilt!!
that doesn't always mean it will sound great but the parts are the best on the market.
let me know if you want some shots of it
