HereŽs some more schematics of commercial available guitar amps :
Seeing those you probably still think the ax84-amp is the choice.

May I ask what the purpose of building it yourself is?
Do you think youŽll get it cheaper or is it for fun ?
I donŽt wanna discourage your buddy but youŽll probably get a 2nd-hand amplifier )for home purpose) cheaper than the whole project would cost.

Another alternative could be to build a simple gainclone chip amplifier and go for a used tube pedal like the Hughes&Kettner "Tubeman"
and use that in front.

If you decide for the latter let me know and IŽll try the combination.

I have a s**tload of guitar amps and effect schematics i've came across in the internet over the years - if you want something in particular drop me a mail, i might have it somewhere. But still, google is your best friend

The AX84 project i heard is a very nice low power amp, in the spirit of the THD Univalve - it might be worth a look.

Default What type of music ?


what type of music do you want to play with your amp ? The sound of your amp depend of the "sound" you want. For me a Vox AC30 is good for a lot. It is simple to build, use EL84 easy to find, low price,... and have a "magic sound".
You can find schematic on my site
I see that you are in belgium, you can find parts at diy paradiso and transformers at diy paradiso or magnetic in france. Some good adress at
