Mojotone’s Tweed Deluxe Style Amp is based on the popular 5E3 circuit from the 1950s and is by far our most popular amplifier. These amps were originally designed as medium power amps that would allow a musician to plug in more than one amplified instrument at a time. At higher volumes, this amp produces saturated tones that were adopted as signature tones for the likes of Billy Gibbons, Neil Young, Don Felder, and Larry Carlton.
Utilizing two 6V6 power tubes, one 12AY7 preamp tube, and one 12AX7 preamp tube, the circuit is simple enough to maintain a rich harmonic composition but powerful enough for guitarists to use in recording studios, rehearsals and smaller venues — and the amp is just a microphone away from being ready for bigger stages. We chose a Jensen C12Q 35 Watt speaker to complement the 5E3 style circuit, as it enhances the sound of the amp without compromising its historic tonal accuracy.
Our Tweed Deluxe style amp has two normal channel inputs and two bright channel inputs. The normal and bright channels each have their own volume control, and the two channels can even be 'jumpered' together and blended for a new range of tonal options. The global tone control also helps shape the overall timbre of the amp, giving the player total control over their sound without having to spend hours dialing in EQs.
We offer a completely hand-wired Tweed Deluxe 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.

null Everything within the kit was well-labeled and easy to identify. The woodwork quality: fantastic. It took less time than I originally thought to assemble this piece, which was good since I was genuinely excited to hear the results! Tonally this offset head is a wonderful tool for both the stage and studio. Days after completion it was used at a local show as the “house amp” for the evening, and it served various rock and blues styles well for the entire show.

Great Experience I built this amp as part of a class at the Nazareth Guitar Institute. The parts are all first rate and clearly labeled. Six of us built amps under the instruction of Chris Middlestedt, Tyler Unger, & Dale Unger. None of us had any problems and all of the amps sounded superb. Recommend these kits to anyone! Thanks for a great experience.

null I have built several of the Mojotone Tweed amps. The Deluxe is, without a doubt, the sweetheart of the bunch. There is a reason this circuit is still a favorite with tone aficionados. It just works!

null Exellent kit! I wired the normal channel differently to have more gain by changing out some resistors/capacitors and adding a 12ax7 instead of a 12ay. The other channel remains the same with stock components. Sounds more Marshallesque! Great job on the tweed cabinet Mojotone! A+!!!!

Tweed Deluxe I really felt the need to come on here and write a positive review. I bought the tweed deluxe kit (just small parts) and not only was it easy to put together, it for real sounds like a tweed deluxe. I couldn't be happier with this kit. I highly recommend if you want the tone but can't find/afford an old one.

null Bought the complete kit and just finished it. This was my first amp build (I have done lots of pedal builds) so it took me a while as there were no instructions however the wiring layout provided was clear and easy to follow. There was plenty of information on the internet regarding lead dress and grounding ideas that helped me out. I'm blown away with the tone, right up there with the vintage tweeds but much quieter!
The cabinet is quality is first rate, the amp parts are all high quality. Customer service is nothing short of amazing. They accommodated my special shipping requirements on very short notice and today after calling them about a component issue have immediately sent me a replacement part.
There are lots of kit choices out there but I'll stick with Mojotone. Apart from another amp kit I'm thinking about trying their guitar pickups and wiring components next.

That Sweet Vintage Tone If you are looking for vintage tone and want to put together a kit for yourself, look no where else. This is the best sounding amp kit I've ever built, and I've built over 50 kits myself. The sound is spot on to a vintage Tweed Deluxe, the look and feel of it is also reminiscent to the original Fender Tweed Deluxe. There is nothing more that I can say, except that this kit is the perfect reproduction!
