I've wanted to scratch build such an amp for a while but individual parts are pretty-much unobtainable so this kit was the next best thing (expensive but excellent quality). It's been in the mail since 20th of August and is currently on the slow boat to Auckland as I couldn't justify the extreme freight cost for anything other than surface mail. I've also got GST to look forward to but I'm still having premature delayed gratification as I wait...

ooo... had my eye on that one too, looks like a great project! Quality kits, + Stephen is a top guy too... enjoy :)

Yep, my very first build was his Tweed Deluxe kit and I totally agree with your comments. They just cost an arm + a leg and the freight from Canada... OMG! Hence surface mail and a 2-3 month wait.

18W 'Plexi v6' with VVR. Couldn't be happier with the amp, well beyond my expectations of playability and sound.

That postage was pretty painful... Canadapost actually lost the package, it took several months to arrive. I look forward to hearing about your TC15 build!. :)

Sounds like a great amp. Of all the amps I've owned and built to date, the only one I still have is my Trinity 5E3 with VVR (& a couple of bass reduction mods & a grid stopper on the PI... yada yada yada)!

I'm glad your wife shares your passion :mental:

Good call, think we'd all like to see pics of his wife's expression when they arrive together.
