    Anyone make a good one?
    What do i need to build it other than a soldering iron and a multimeter? I have some basic hand tools but, any other special equipment?

    SLO Clone forum would have all the answers you need and then some. Can't remember the answer to their security question, though.

    I was looking into this myself awhile back. After reading a lot and asking questions I concluded that either a real deal Soldano or C3 with an Onetics tranny was the way to go...then I made a down payment on a house and my plans changed. http://www.c3amps.com/SLO Kits.html

    That’s it?
    The HDM is a 100%, component values, circuit and all, clone of the SLO100?

    About as close as most of the kits out there that you're probably looking at.

    You'll never get 100% 1:1 on an SLO thanks to custom transformers, and given variances built into component values, tubes, power, etc. amps can sound a little different from one another.

    Spend some time on the SLO Clone forum, and see what's going to work best with your budget and skill level.

    Titan Amps were supposed making SLO type Amps from kits or something.

    they are also a bunch of weirdos that think because they can trace a guitar amp they are rocket scientists. So don’t spend more time there then you need to.

    It’s more of an avenger. But with the onetics you’ll be 90 percent of the way there.
