One of our most popular amps, the Mojotone Deluxe Reverb Style Kit, is based on arguably the most widely used guitar amp of all time. Just about every iconic guitarist imaginable has played through a Deluxe Reverb at some point or another, but this amp has been specifically touted by artists such as Mike Campbell, Vince Gill, Jackson Brown, and even Elvis Costello.
Considered by some a perfect pedal platform amp, this simple 22 watt circuit pairs well with our Mojotone Anthem 12” speaker. This combination provides a foundation for crystal clear note separation with a full and warm body. Experience the classic chime of a Deluxe Reverb and take advantage of the multiple inputs, two channels, and beautiful onboard reverb and tremolo effects.
There are two inputs on the normal channel -- input 1 is slightly hotter than input 2 giving a guitarist the option to connect multiple guitars whose pickups have different output levels, without having to adjust the amp’s volume levels. The normal channel is extremely user friendly and straightforward with only three controls -- volume, treble, and bass. The Vibrato channel also has two inputs which work the same way as those on the normal channel. Similarly, the Vibrato channel contains volume, treble, and bass, but also houses the controls for reverb level as well as tremolo speed and intensity.

2. Wiring Diagram / Layout
Our beginner level kits such as the tweed champ and tweed deluxe include a manual. If you purchase a kit from Mojotone and do not receive these documents, you can obtain copies by emailing email@example.com or calling 800-927-6656. The Mojotone staff is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST unless otherwise closed.
Mojotone kits include the best quality parts that are available at the time of purchase. If a substitution is required, our team will use parts that are of equal quality to ensure the integrity of the kit build remains the same.
Building a fully functional amplifier kit is not an easy task. Before building a kit, one should have the ability to properly solder as well as read and understand a schematic and wiring diagram. While we do our very best to ensure all documentation is current, the included documentation is meant to serve as an overall guide to building the amplifier. Simply following the schematic and wiring diagram does not guarantee you will have a fully functional amplifier. In fact, post build troubleshooting is a common issue across all builds.
Our staff is available to assist with basic troubleshooting needs. There are plenty of online videos available that are helpful with most post build issues. Technical staff is available via email by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call our sales team to discuss build problems, dial 800-927-6656 and press 1 for sales.
Building a tube amplifier takes time, dedication, resources and most importantly... Skills! The experience of building an amp can come with some frustration, the reward of completing the build is definitely well worth your time. Please review the wiring diagram, schematic and manual (if applicable) prior to making your purchase. Mojotone will not accept any returns on amplifier kits and/or parts that have been assembled, soldered or modified.

Nice kit, some minor nuances

Overall, great kit, high quality parts. Some say there is not enough wire but if you use lengths specified in a stewmac manual for a similar kit then you will have some wire left, you might want to swap some colors tho. My kit came with 2 wrong tubes that were replaced promptly by customer support. However preamp tubes I got are microphonic, at least half of them. I am not sure if I should reach out to the customer support and how normal this is since this is my first kit. I know some tube sellers ask for extra to verify that tubes they send are not microphonic.
Initially I got a pretty bad hum in reverb circuit, I looked for ground loops, toothpicked every component and wire then suddenly knocked that pedal and realized noise gone. Apparently I have some noise coming from below the floor and that pedal is not shielded well. I applied foil with an insulating layer of a duct tape to the inner side of the plastic cover and noise is gone now, the amp is pretty much silent at idle

The Deluxe Reverb is a Phenomenal Amp. I have built amps sourcing the individual parts in the past, but and having all the parts put together in a convenient kit make building a breeze! The only down side is that it is easy to forget to order any parts you might need for mods or variations from the original.
