Mojotone’s Tweed Super Style Amp Kit is based on the ~20-30 watt model rumored to be one of Leo Fender’s favorite creations. The Tweed Super’s design gave it a more nasal sound than some of its larger relatives, which makes it popular among guitarists who play gritty blues and rockabilly. This 5F4 circuit has a unique break up that has been featured in recordings by the likes of Joe Bonamassa and The Eagles.
The amp utilizes two 6L6gc power tubes for to push 28 watts before clipping, all the while delivering fat luscious low tones with pristine highs. We paired the Super circuit with two Mojotone Anthem AN10C 10" 35 Watt speakers that are lively with a fat, snappy response and offer a cool gritty overdriven sound that will not sacrifice articulation for distortion. For those players seeking a responsive amp that is perfect for roots rock styles and is easy to haul around, the Mojotone Tweed Super Style kit is a no brainer.
Global controls include presence, bass, and treble for a multitude of sonic variations. There are two channels, bright and normal, and each has two inputs. The normal channel is more tame with a slightly warmer overall sound, while the bright channel has more aggressive highs and breaks up slightly faster. These inputs can not only be used in a traditional fashion but can also be ‘jumpered’ together and blended, via their dedicated volume controls, for even more sound options.
Please note that there is no step-by-step assembly manual available for this amp kit. This amp kit comes only with a technical schematic and a wiring diagram. This is an advanced kit best suited for builders with previous amp building experience and understanding of electrical circuits.

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 email@example.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.
Ratings & Reviews
by Pete M -
I assembled this kit over a few weekends and found it enjoyable and rewarding. The wiring diagram is clear and easy enough to follow. A few small snags worth mentioning,though. The spec called for 2× 270k resistors, but 27k resistors were provided in the kit. And the fiberboard had to be trimmed in a few places to accommodate the transformer lugs. Despite these minor inconveniences, however, I still give a five star rating...the component quality is excellent, and this thing sounds fantastic thru my 2x12 cab. Nice work Mojo!
