Just ordered one of these. I hope I can do it successfully. Supposed to be a very easy build, so I have my fingers crossed. Always wanted a standalone reverb unit, and read that the Fender RIs aren't very reliable, so I thought I'd build one. Any words of encouragement or general ridicule? Both are welcome Very Happy

Sounds cool ... I want 6M45 (Marshall JTM45) kit.

Did Jazzmeister's post inspire you for this build

I think you could handle this kit. Pretty much like an 5F1 (Tweed Champ).

Of course tell us how this project goes and its performance.

Funny, I saw his post in the middle of all my research and shopping! His pic definitely cemented the idea for me. I ordered the cab in vintage brown/wheat with a brown faceplate with white lettering. Have a Fender badge on the way for the front, but I need to figure out how to get the "Fender Reverb" lettering on the faceplate. Anybody know how to silkscreen? Very Happy May just get someone to cut it out of vinyl and stick it on there. Good enough for me!

Oh, and thanks for the vote of confidence, Roland! I'm not a beginner with a soldering iron, but I've never done anything except guitar/RC wiring. One reason why I want to do it is for the challenge. I'm hoping to learn a lot. Plus the added benefit of having the unit when it's all done!

Great little circuit.
The Champ was the easiest, trouble free amp I have ever wired up.

I managed to land a real one - they're FUN. It's Dick Dale in a box. Very Happy
