Default Tube amp builder

Hi
I started my career years ago with a respected UK audio company Raper and Wayman-fixing and selling Manley and Bryston gear-all the manley processors and amplifiers (Stingray HiFi amp mainly) and lots of the Bryston stuff
I now design and construct tube processors and amplifiers at home as a little cottage industry
I have good elationships with many suppliers and engraing facilities fo doing the panels. I use stock available boxes from manufacturers(there are some great ones out there) and then customise them
I would be happy to see your schematics and build you an amp

Jeff at Abraxus Audio.

He did Bernie's 2A3 SE which is lovely, and planning is started for a 2A3 PP with all O'Netics iron.

There is always scott17 and you find find some of his work here. I am not sure whatelse he has to offer amp wise, but I believe that the KT88 amp shown is based on Mikael Abdellah's KT88 SE Tube Amplifier . And it looks nice. He might have the knowledge, chassis building materials, and skills to put together your amp. He is sometimes active here on diyaudio.com

his work can be seen here...

KT88 SE Basic or Master Kit

and you can probably PM or post to the thread to get his attention.

Or if you want, then possibly ask Bob Latino though he may be busy making his ST70, but his work looks very nice and he has the skills from the looks of it.

You never know.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I will look into them.

I really like the looks of the Electronluv gear. Just checked his site. Looks like he does do custom commission work, but I think it's going to be way expensive.

Why does your location say MA?

There are a ton of North Texas guys that are builders. I'm in McKinney.

The problem is this guy is in Japan and I'm not sure if he would accept my business, being located in Texas. And shipping would be a nightmare.

Anyone direct me to someone close to me? At least in the US?

Thanks.
You can e-mail me, and discuss what it is you're looking for.

Sorry, I need to change my location. I used to live in MA. Now I'm in Texas. Are there guys in Texas that build chassis like Electronluv or wiring and circuit layout work like Well Come My WebSite Audio Collections ?

You mean, take extruded aluminum parts and build crazy amp chassis, or just nice looking chassis?

Wiring like that site is not that hard to do. Just depends on the layout.

Where in TX are you?
