Default Hi from another noob

Hi there

I'm based in the UK and have dabbled in DIY guitar effects for a while now. Now looking to put together my first hi-fi amp. Any tips on good UK suppliers gratefully received.

John

Hi John and welcome to diyAudio.

For suppliers (components etc) check out,
CPC | CPC - Over 100, 000 products from one of the worlds leading distributors of electronic and related products.

Farnell an Radio Spares are excellent too but you pay more and have delivery charges. I wouldn't recommend auction sites as a source of semiconductors. Way to many fake devices around.

Thanks for the tip! Up to now I've tended to stay away from the bigger suppliers. Most of my guitar related builds have been on strip board and I have used some of the specialist suppliers as a more or less one stop shop. It might be time to branch out.

Thanks John. Cricklewood is a name I haven't heard in years - I had completely forgotten about them.
