Glidetone Tube Amplifier Project - Totally customizable tube amp project that is built for flexibility.

Cakepan Amp

We don't think it's too much to ask for a tube amplifier to have all the following features...

• Two channels with GAIN, TREBLE, BASS and LEVEL control.
• DC Coupled Cathode Follower gain section for sweet cleans to full tube crunch.
• Very quiet channel switching crucial for live performance.
• Two analog reverbs with LEVEL and DECAY with Tails-Mute control.
• Two speaker output jacks.
• Selectable 4,8,16 ohm speaker output.
• Power amp section can be switched between fixed or cathode bias.
• Footswitch control for channel switching, both reverbs, and lead boost.
• Master volume control that also doubles as LEAD BOOST control.
• Dry signal path is 100% tube driven, no op-amps or digitizers.
• Post-overdrive pre-reverb effects loop.
• Option for external bias test point.
• Extra outlet on the back.

Expand your tonal dimensions with Glidetone sliding pickups

There are so many great playing electric guitars, but it's a shame that their tonal range is limited by their pickups being in fixed positions. Imagine if you could move your pickups to capture all the different harmonics available along your strings.

Enter the Glidetone sliding pickup system, which allows you to slide and rotate your pickups to multitudes of positions between the neck and bridge of your guitar. Take your guitar and bass tones to new places.

There are five color tracks to choose from...
• Antique Gold
• Silver
• Black
• Red
• Blue

Glidetone "Cakepan" tube amplifier

We've had lots of fun developing our Cakepan tube amplifier kit. Originally developed for electric guitar, this amplifier packs loads of features into a small but robust package. With the right customizations this amp works great for bass, harmonica, and other electric instruments as well.

So if you ever wanted to build a great sounding tube amp then head over to our Products page for more info.
Before you start building your own amp though, you should check out the Valve Wizard page for loads of great info about how to design and build tube amplifiers.
