So I finally pulled the trigger on a JP Le Roux amp. l'll use this thread to punt JP and his excellent amps..

This all started a few months ago when I traded my 30w valve laney for a forumites 18w Lite iiB. I enjoyed it so much that it reignited the lust for a single channeled rock machine..

I had dealt with JP before when he completely overhauled a 69 Elk amp I have, and at the time, i had spoken to him about building me an amp, but alas, never got one. I called JP up and spoketo him about the possibilities on a build, he gave me various options, and then also added in an option on on of his amps.. the JP Le Roux Supernova 20w. This is the option i went with, and im properly happy with it..

Love it! Basically it is  20w all valve single channel amp with a reverb. It is a 1x12 combo with a celestion vintage 30. Built like a tank and so good looking. Wiring is on a turret board and all pointto point. Very clean. Wont post any gut shots though..

I know JP was a member here but would seem he hasnt been active for a while, so if you need to contact him his details are in the amp tech section. Alternativelymi will leave his facebook link under the pics..
If you can, support this great local builder. Was a pleasure to work with.

Nice one Guido. Lovely amp from a really decent guy who knows his stuff.  I only use JP for amp work, and he did a great job on sorting my Marshal DSL401 (bridge rectifier mod, fan, Celestion Creamback).  Couldn't recommend him more highly.

Saving my pennies for one of his amps too.

Thanks all

Yeh Bandit, he commented on how so many of his customers are from amp repairs and work done. Interesting dynamic.

He has a cool pedal board amp called the aftershock,

Check out this neat review of one of his 2 channel amps, the anti matter. Great playing too
