looking for any recommendations - help teach my kid electronics and value of something you built

Check out cerriatone

http://www.ceriatone.com/

I also really want to build a Brown Note

http://www.brownnote.net/

A buddy of mine built one. He said the kit could have been easier and documented better but the end result was worth it.

Weber makes great kits. They also make amazing speakers if you need some...

Buy "The Guitar Amp Handbook" and build the cool amp in there. A great book regardless of one's tech skills.

i built a ceriatone marshall 18watt (bought the populated turret board and tube kit).......it was an awesome amp, i though, for the price.

+1 on the Torres Tube Amp book. All of the parts are available @ Angela.com

I've seen and heard a couple of Allen Amplification kit amps but not put one together. If you're going for the Fendery thing, they sure sound good, plus most of the kits can be had in combo or head versions.

i've been meaning to get and build one of those weber 5f1 or 5e1 kits for a while now. i am sure they must sound good with the right weber speaker in. i love the old fender tweed sound!

I just bought a Ceriatone Overtone HRM Bluesmaster 50w kit. Waiting currently for it to arrive...

Oh - and now I've got a ridiculously self indulgent running thread over on the ceriatone forums of my build progress, with lots of pictures - http://ceriatoneforum.com/index.php?topic=1952.0

I built the Madamp G2 2watter from http://www.madamp.biz/ - a German company.

Cost me £100 + 50 for a cheapo 12" speaker cab.

It sounds fantastic and is my 'go to' amp for recording bass guitar and offers me a different flavour to my Fender Twin for 6 string guitar.

2w is not loud enough for gigging (tried and failed Dead Banana ) but plenty loud enough for home use.

Have you checked out AX84 yet?

http://www.ax84.com/

Here's the one I built with my dad years and years ago. It still works great, we had a blast getting the parts, learning and building together!

http://www.ax84.com/p1.html

Worked on the first plug in, still remember that. I stayed up all night playing it haha. Since then, I've bought Marshalls, Mesas, and a nice Gibson Goldtone and have gone on to sell them all in favor of my good old AX84 P1, an SM58 and my collection of pedals smile

Here's a website that sells the kit that alot of people buy:

http://shop.dobermanamps.com/product-p/kit-p1.htm

But half the fun is going to the electronic store together or to http://www.tubesandmore.com/ and ordering the parts.
