    I always see them at guitar shows. They usually have scratch and dent items for cheap on the first day.

    I ordered one of the parts express L-Pads. It's hard to not try one for $13. Thanks for the heads-up Ronnie.

    Amplified Parts is an excellent vendor. I love their sales. It's usually a big % off of the whole order.

    Yeah, I could've bought another VJ, but this has nice components, and it's point to point.

    Thanks Chuck. Me either. I've had better luck with fixed value simple l-pads, but I might give that one a try.

    I bought one of these kits for myself recently. I missed having an amp this size, and this looked like the best value for a complete kit. It comes with decent transformers, a nice chassis, and very easy to follow instructions. It's a solid little amp that would a good choice for any beginner. Follow the link for a schematic.

    I think I must have forgotten how loud a five watt can be. It seems to have good characteristics when cranked, but it's too much. I ordered a bunch of resistors, and I've been playing around with L-Pads with the ambition to find a sweet spot of attenuation for this little amp. I used to have a Valve Jr. that sounded incredible through a L-Pad.
Working...
