Getting a good chassis will definitely be the hardest & most expensive part to source.

Please bear with me folks.

I really appreciate all the replies, but this project simply cannot be thrown together in a few weeks and meet the design criteria that I am sure you all would want to see. My original post was to find out what kind of interest there would be before I went through the design phase.

I want this project to be as affordable as possible, yet offer an aesthetically pleasing build factor. There are many tube amps that look similar. I would like for this kit to offer a little bit more in design and appearance.

I am doing my best to be able to provide the custom transformers in the laydown-style which will really streamline the appearance of the build.

I want to make sure that this doesn't drive the price up too high. I am still waiting on definitive answers from a few suppliers before I can make this decision. You must realize that I will have to purchase these in a fairly large quantity to keep the price down, so I want to be absolutely sure that I am making the right decision before committing.

Based on the information I receive concerning pricing, the amp may have to be offered with standard, stand-up mount transformers just to keep the kit price reasonable.

I have the chassis design fairly well complete, but need to finalize the transformer mounting.

I am still reluctant to piecemeal the information to you folks regarding cost, chassis design, etc., until I have the full picture. I think the project needs to be presented as a complete system for it to be fully understood & appreciated.

Thanks again,

Scott

Additional comment: I realize that I said I could provide pricing "in a few days". Where I'm from "a few" means more than two and less than five. Well I was wrong about that, I got a little over-zealous in thinking I could get these transformers designed and priced so quickly. For that I apologize.

Will you be offering a kit without the chassis aswell? Making the chassis is my favourite part on these kind of projects, so a kit with just the components would be great!

I can second this. Offering a version of the kit without the chassis is going to be one of the best ways to keep the price down, to sell a few kits quickly up front, and to get versions of your amp up and running. I do admire that you want this to be a complete package, but there are people on the forums that would love to do the chassis themselves too.
