Hi all, new to the forum but I have been lurking for some time. I built my first amp kit (a Trinity Tweed) over the Christmas holidays. It went very well (finished the chassis in about 5 days) including the building of the cabinet myself and covering it with tweed (another 5 days). The tone is fantastic and the volume for home use is also incredible, too incredible. So, after much reading, I decided to order the VRM kit from Stephen. I installed it yesterday and I am blown away how this little kit can reduce the mighty roar of a cranked Deluxe down to manageable levels without any loss in tone. Everyone should have one in their build.

Here are some pictures of my build:

And finally, the VRM installed...

All in all, a great kit experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for their first amp build. :kool:

Thank you for the pics. A very nice job. :) What type of wood did you use for the cabinet?

Thanks! It was an 8' piece of 1" X 12" rough sawn pine that I got at Home Depot. I ran it through the thickness planer to take it down to 3/4" of thickness. I thick it is yellow pine as it is a bit too soft compared to white pine but it has a great sound to it. The baffle board is 7/16" Baltic Birch. The back panels a 1/4" fir plywood. When it was done, I gave it two coats of Bulls Eye Amber Schellac.

Every thing looks great

Coco this should be in the resources section for a Tweed build

Trinity Tweed with VRM is a guitar amplifier that incorporates Virtual Cabinet (VC) and Virtual Room (VR) Modeling technology. The Trinity Tweed is designed to emulate the classic tone of a 1950s Fender Tweed Deluxe amplifier. synapse x
