Mojotone’s Tweed Twin Low Power Style Amp Kit is a complete tonal powerhouse. Sporting 45 Watts of power, the amp has all the sweet, vocal qualities and rich dynamic response as the original. Known for being a plug-and-play amp, the 5E8-A circuit has been used most notably by Eric Clapton and has been said to ‘cut’ more than its higher powered counterpart (Tweed Twin High Power).
Versatile in both tone and volume, the 5E8-A gets its power from two 6L6GC power tubes and our MOJO752 power transformer. A mixture of high quality capacitors, preamp tubes, potentiometers and other components makes for a beautiful dialog between player and amplifier, and assures the longevity of the equipment. We chose to pair this amp with two Jensen C12Q 35 Watt speakers to finish off the sound with a nice midrange bite and bright highs.
Global controls include presence, bass, and treble for a wide variety of tonal options. 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 a more aggressive sound 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.
We offer a completely hand-wired Tweed Twin Low Power style amp assembled by our expert builders right here at Mojotone headquarters. Our in-house technicians have an extreme attention to detail and take great pride in their work -- our builds are 100% guaranteed.
For those players who are a little more "hands-on," we also offer the amplifier as a kit with a variety of options including small parts only, full kit (both head and combo configurations), export specs, and more.
