I bought two kits from Tom Bremer (note spelling) last year,
they are a great deal. His cabinets are excellent, and everything
you need is included. Tubes, wire, speakers… everything.
I bought the 3-10 and the 2-10. I’ve been using the 3-10
for about a year, works fine. I haven’t gotten around to
finishing the 2-10 yet; it needs a few more hours of work.
Don’t expect to duplicate the sound of a ’59 Bassman –
the models Tom offers are based on the 5F4 (Super)
circuit. In a 3-10, Fender offered this as the 5E7 Bandmaster,
(with one or two different resistor values.) This circuit
came before Fender finally hit on the tone stack and
phase inverter which became the standard in most Fender
amps afterwards. It sounds good, but it’s not the same.
BTW, I’d sell my 3-10 model for $500, if anyone’s interested.
It’s been working great ever since I finished it last January –
and it’s even gotten a little scuffed up to make it look more
