Greg how much do you think it would cost to make the one you posted? (100W Guitar Amplifier Mk II)
I'm not sure of exact costs but Rod does have a built and tested amp for $145. You would have to add a transformer, rectifier, filter caps plus a case and heatsink and a few odds and sods. The Jaycar stuff shoud do the job, but I personally buy toriods from Harbuch.

regards

Perhaps you better be more specific what you're wanting to do?.
I like to play mostly metallica etc and distrotion sounds like rubbish compared to my mates amps which sound great with distortion, yea my amp sounds pretty good just clean,

I dont get that crisp distortion sound, its more like a fuzzy sound.

If you're wanting that 'heavy metal' distortion, I suggest you build (or buy) a valve amp - a 'real' one, not just a transistor amp with a single valve thrown in.
