Disclaimer: Some of the parts contained in this kit are subject to availability.

Mojotone reserves the right to change or substitute any and all of the parts contained in this amplifier kit without advertisement or notification to the buyer. Part substitutions made by Mojotone are guaranteed not to affect the integrity or operation of your amplifier kit. Time estimates listed are from start to finish. If you are new to tube amplifiers, additional time may need to be factored.

 

When purchasing a kit from Mojotone, you will receive the following documentation.

1. Schematic

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 tech@mojotone.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 tech@mojotone.com. 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.

This amp kit also comes with the following documents. Please feel free to view and/or download them:

Excellent kit and tone heaven!!! Built for UK 240v.

by Johnny Sharp

A couple of handy hints for anyone building the kit for 240v UK mains voltage. Use the 240v Tap on the MT not the 230V, as using the 230v tap takes the HT voltage much too high, using the 240V tap keeps it at around 430V. Next, Drill a hole next to MT to fit a CTS 10K LIN bias pot plus adding a 22K resistor for spot on adjustment of bias. This works a treat and gets the bias perfect. For mains safety reasons, have the white 'HOT' wire going through the BASE of the fuse holder, then out to the BLACK/RED MT 240V tap. Black common negative wire to common black primary tap on MT. I'm a qualified electronic technician so have knowledge in building mains powered stuff. If less experienced, just take your time as there is no rush. Rushing the project just amplifies making mistakes and errors, take it easy and make it an enjoyable time. Its very addictive once you finish a project like this, fire it up, and gig it. Im gonna build a 5F1 champ next Have fun!!!.
