  1. Have just released the Construction Manual for the Lamington III amplifier – detailed step by step instructions for successful construction of this 40W amplifier!

    1. Hi Troy,

      Thanks for your enquiry. The Lamington III is certainly suitable for a bass amplifier with its higher power output. It is similar in power and sound to a Fender Bassman.

      Cheers, Grant

  2. Hello Grant

    Has anybody built a lamington III for a bass guitar?
    Any modifications required for the tone circuit?
    I am looking at driving an 8 Ohm GK 15″ speaker. The guitarist I play with uses a 15 watt valve amplifier, and I run at around 20 to 33% of a 125 Watt 8 Ohm solid state head. I think I would be fine for power though.

    regards
    Michael

    1. Hi Michael,
      The Lamington III has been used successfully for bass. The “James” tone stack provides more than enough tone control for bass. I would think that the Lamington III through a reasonably sensitive 15″ speaker would keep up with your guitarist. Cheers, Grant
