TMB18 Amp Kit
Everything you need to build a point‐to‐point, hand-wired TMB (Treble Middle Bass) version of the Marshall 18 watter. This is seriously one of the most essential and versatile amps you’ll ever own. And it’s not that hard to build either! Two channels of tasty class A, EL84 goodness. The first channel is just volume and tone – great for shimmering, vox-like clean tones with that top‐end chime that you can only get with EL84s. Crank the volume up and back off on the tone control and you’ve got tones that are reminiscent of a Tweed Deluxe. The second channel features the TMB controls and a master volume, which allow you to punch up the gain, sculpt the tone, and keep the volume right where you want it. This channel is pure Marshall tone, just not as loud as its bigger brothers. Add an A/B box, and you’ve got the perfect channel switching amp for live gigs.
The BYOC TMB18 kit comes with everything you need right down to the hook up wire. The tubes are all JJ EL84 x 2, ECC83 x 3, and EZ81 rectifier. We were able to purchase the last remaining lot of N.O.S. Classic Tone™ transforers from Magnetic Components. These aren't rebranded "custom reproductions" of unknown origin like you'll find in other kits. These are the highest quality iron laminate and paper layer transformers wound to vintage specs, using vintage construction methods, and made in Chicago, US.
We do not offer cabinets.
