Is there a kit getting around for this, or is there a very low watt tube amp kit around? I want to build a small valve amp, but if I need to I may go solid state. but I think a Valve would be a pretty cool project.Thanks.See More

"But the scratches I want  to remove are the ones in the finish, just around the slots. If I sand the top wont I remove the varnish?"
