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 comes stock with a Jensen C12Q 12” speaker and (2) JJ 6V6 power tubes. 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.
Ratings & Reviews
your kits are great
your kits are great--the parts are all great quality and I like how they are organized and labeled. It really makes building the kits easy. The included documentation is good too
This is a fantastic kit.
This is a fantastic kit. The parts are all high quality and the cab is flawless. It took me six enjoyable days to complete. I am retired, so I can spend as much or as little time working on it as I wanted. Having built 20 amps, two of which were kits and the rest were scratch, I do have some experience. The large layout diagram that was included was helpful to my aging eyes. I also referred to the instructions on the Stew Mac website for wire lengths. Time to play, then get it ready to give away.
