Thinking about the Nelson Pass Amp Camp Amps; building a pair to run as mono blocks, just as something fun to do if I get bored...

 

Would be really fun to build a 300b amp, but fuck, the amp kit is a couple grand and the tubes are another 1500 or something?

Yeah, HeathKit mono-block Class A amps was actually a thing… they still fetch $$ nowadays.

 

 

 

Do you still run them? How'd they sound? :)

I built a Radio Shack amplifier once..

 

 

 

I've built a headphone amp, from some schematic I found online, to fit in an Altoids tin. Worked ok, but I had a little buzz... Almost 20 years ago...? Man.

I lost it a long time back. Since I built it myself, thought it sounded superior, of course… lol.  Mine was a stereo variant, with the same style coppertone body.
 

I was fun to build and I got a LOT  more clean power for the money. I still

have the custom JM Speakers I used to drive with it. (Loudly).

 

I built a few different Heathkits - learned to solder and understand electronics.

 

I’ve seen such HeathKit Class A amps pulling surprisingly big money nowadays…

Where we goin’? … I’ll drive…
There are some who call me... Tom too         v i s i o n a u t i k s.com

Well, ya know, it's worth more because it's vintage. (TBF, might be something to it, though...)
