Mojotone’s Tweed Champ Style Amp Kit is based on the beloved 5 watt amp from the 1950s. These amps were perfect for recording and were featured on a wide array of recordings from Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain High” all the way to Derek & the Dominos’ “Layla.” Modeled after the historic Class-A 6V6 platform, this amp delivers warm tones that are harmonically rich and have a beautiful low volume crunch.
The amp utilizes one 6V6 power tube and one 12AX7 preamp tube, giving the amp its famed lush harmonic composition. We chose our Mojotone American Vintage AV8C 15 Watt speaker to complement the 5F1 style circuit since it has a nice clean sound at its lowest volumes but introduces an articulate and unique grit as you increase the amp's volume.
Don’t be fooled by the fact that this circuit features only a single volume control; 5F1s have been used by some of the greatest guitarists and on some of the greatest recordings of all time. Our Tweed Champ style amplifier is extremely tactile and responds well to dynamic playing; so no matter if you play jazz, classic rock, blues or anything in between, you will not be disappointed.
We offer a completely hand-wired Tweed Champ style amp assembled by our expert builders right here at Mojotone headquarters. Our in-house technicians have an extreme attention to detail and take great pride in their work -- our builds are 100% guaranteed.
For those players who are a little more "hands-on," we also offer the amplifier as a kit with a variety of options including small parts only, full kit (both head and combo configurations), export specs, and more.
