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.
Stock setup includes 12BH7 output tube
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.

Kills two birds with one stone! To start, I'll say that my expectations were manageable going into this build. I've played on other low-wattage micro amps, and found they sound like crap. Not enough gain, minimal tone controls, thin, tinny tone, etc. A certain orange and white one comes to mind...
This amp sounds like a big boy amp, with all the big boy controls, but you dont have to replace your windows after "diming" the volume knob.
Not only is this kit more affordable, its not made in China, its not digital pcb solid-state nonsense, and its not filled with gimmicks, like other amps you might be considering.
I love how transparent this thing sounds. Its like my pickups are wired straight into the output transformer. It responds really well to different dynamics, and it really does sound huge.
Anyone with a little electronics experience should jump on this kit asap.

null 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.

Great little amp. This amp really sounds impressive. Clean channel really shines on my strat. Very sweet sounding. And the gain channel take over from there, from mild crunch up into high gain while still sounding rich and tight.
This was my first amp build, and while I wouldn't recommend to just anyone, someone with some electrical background and safety knowledge should be able to figure it out with a little research.
