I have one, completely assembeled by Ceriatone. The cabinet will show up tomorrow , then I will put them together with 3x 10" Celestion from abt 1965.   So far the only problem has been that  Ceriatone did not connect the 4 Ohms tap from the OT, but the 8 - and 16 Ohm.
Nik said it was due to the fact that on the comboversion there was not room for a threeway selector.

3x8 Ohms speakers in parallell gives you a resistance that the amp "can see" of abt 2,67 Ohm. Therefore one need the 4 ohms tap connected.

Again, since the original Fender from 1955 had 3x 8 Ohms speakes connected in parallell, one would want that. At least I do.
 
I have made the modification so that I have only connected 4 Ohms and 8 Ohms. Easily done, but in a country like sweden I had to pay som 160 USD( ! ) to have it done (Yes Sweden is a expensive country), since I am not able to do it myself. That was a waist of money for me. Never the less, I have discussed the matter with Nik , and I sincerely hope that it will be correct on future complete comboamps.

Another small detail - one have to add a tiny little angeled bracket on the big tranny, to help carry the weight when assembeled to the cabinet.


I have found some old pictures on an original 1955 unit that I have as a rawmodel.

I have tested to play it as it is , and it sounds promising , thats for sure.

I will add som more pictures when the cabinet has arrived.....

All the best

Well,

Here it is , my new Bandmaster. It is a fantastic amp to play , even att full power. It is quiet and hav a amazingly good, vintage sound.
It is , of course, equipped with 3x Jensen Alnico P10R.  The sign on the fron I have designed and made  myself.
Of course I did not want a Fender sign , since it unfortunately not is a Fender. Therefor I had a sign made  where it says - " Bandmaster by Ceriatone".

I am very happy about my new amp, and my band really loves it after only one session !

Here are a few pictures :






Yes I even put a small sign with the tubeconfiguration and "Made By Ceriatone " on the inside on Fender maner.





That´s my beauty, how about her ??


All the best

Wow!!!
Looks like somebody did a nice job with the Tweed. And a real Pine cabinet also. What brand power tubes are those?

Thank you !!
The intention was to build a "historical correct"  Bandmastercloone as far as possible. That called for Pinecabinet, Jensen P10R, laccquered tweed .
I intended to use three old Celestione 30 w 10" speakers, but it turned out that the magnet on them was too Wide. Therefore I had to go for the Jensen P10R. like the original had. And as one can see on one of the pics , there is not much room between the ampchassie and the speakermagnet. Tongue

The power tubes are Tungsol, that came with the amp. And they are good ! In general I have the impression that the tubes and the components are very good quality from NIK. I have compared with a kit from Weber, also 5E7, and mine is by far better sounding !

All the best

No they did not.
This was done , not by me unfortunately, by the Tubeamp Doctor (TAD) in Germany, and bought from them.

A friend of mine , with very little assistance from me, started to make our own cab, but halfway through the project we realized that we did not have the correct drawings/measurement to build from. At that time, the amp had arrived from Malaysia, so the solution was to buy a cabinet. I found TAD being  the best available supplier for me. I am sure there are others , but this is what I found and I´m happy for it.

Now I have the most awesome Bandmaster by Ceriatone ! Chair Dance

It performs beatifully and I run it with a T.C.Electronics Nova system  hooked up between the guitar and the amp.

That gives me all the sounds needed , and what sounds !!

I built one and can say it is without a doubt a very special amp. I got the chassis from NIK and used his schem and sourced everything else from various sources. I used F&T electrolytics... TS ri 5881's ... and Mullard ax7's ....VERY SWEET.......

Can't see the pictures but I know this circuit!!!   Sounds amazing.  The originals had 3 Jensen P10R speakers connected in a series (not parallel).
