Default tube kit?

I'm a complete beginner to the tube amps. I was surfing the web trying to find a kit which is simple and easy to start with. And I found that "Antique Electronic Supply" sells a stereo tube kit @ $125.96 (part# K-502). I'm wondering if this kit is worthy of trying. Please give me an advice, EXPERTS. Thanks.

Default Thanks

Thanks, John.
I think I'll have to get my wife's approval first. :-) But, I'll give it a try.

Hello JAZZ2250,

I just ordered a Tube Headphone Amp Kit from; They have a lot of tube kits, and you can order directly from their website. They are in the U.K. The prices seem to be very reasonable and the quality of the kits seem to be very good as well.

I'm looking foward to building this kit. I've always wanted a Tube Amp.

I have exhumed this thread because i will make a list of
Tube amplifier Kits.... (complete of everything, box,tubes, transfo..)

the first one that comes me to mind is the Vellemann :
- K4040 (Stereo, four EL34 for channel)
- K8010 (Mono, four KT88)
- K8011 (Mono, four EL34 sold without case)

In Italy we have Nuova Elettronica
with these kits:
- LX1113 (Stereo, two EL34 or KT88 push pull)
- LX1321 (Stereo, two KT88 PP with pre)

Other kits ?

thanks !
