Tired of playing through those kiddie practice amps that lack tone as much as they do quality? Try our Mojotone Studio One Amplifier and bring awesome tube tone to your home or studio. Equipped with a single 12BH7, two 12AX7 tubes, and a 12AY7, this tiny amp works well in the studio or mic’d up on stage. And don’t be shy to put some pedals in front of it either, because it does play nicely with them.

 

About one watt of output sounds awesome for studio or home use! This is an ideal amp for the gain of an 800 style amp at low volumes. Stock setup includes 12BH7 for running as an output tube, however you can run a 12AU7 or 12AT7 for less output volume.

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.

The following documents are included. Please feel free to view and/or download them:

This thing is awesome.

by anonymous

This thing is awesome. It was my first build and Mojotone was very helpful and responsive to my numerous questions. The clean channel is really nice and the lead channel sounds great, especially with a strat with a boost pedal. It is very responsive to guitar volume changes and it handles all my pedals great. It responds better to subtle pick dynamics than my JVM. I'll be building another kit soon.

Overall, the amplifier is what I was looking for.

Overall, the amplifier is what I was looking for. It has a great JCM 800 sound in the lead channel, and the clean channel gives you more of a JTM vibe than a sparkling clean. It is plenty loud for bedroom/studio playing with a 1X12 speaker.

My main problem was with the quality of the kit itself. The kit chassis was missing a hole for one of the 12AX7 preamp tube sockets! I had to drill it, which wasn't too much of a big deal since I had the tools but I would expect the chassis that comes with the kit to be perfect. Also the rear plastic faceplate's hole for the impedance selector is too small to fit the shaft through and that will need to be drilled larger. For me these issues aren't dealbreakers but I could see this mattering much more to someone who doesn't readily have these tools available. I wouldn't suggest this kit to beginners because there are no step by step directions.
