TRIODE USA 5F1 Tweed Champ 15W/5W Tube DIY Amp Kit

DIY Build Kit for our version of a Fender Style 5F1 Tweed 15w/5w Tube Champ Amplifier. A Classic Single-Ended, Cathode-Biased Beauty! Approximately 15W/5w with a Single Volume Control. You get that undeniably sweet tube sound in a super portable amp for small clubs, coffee shops, solos, open jam & more. Put it in a combo cabinet with an 8, 10 or 12" speaker, add a couple of your favorite stomp boxes and jam!!! A GREAT BUILD FOR THE BEGINNER!!
The kit includes Turret Board, Mallory 150 series or Orange Drop Coupling Capacitors, Sprague Atom Electrolytics, High Quality Carbon Comp Resistors, Alpha Potentiometer with On/Off Switch, Chicken Head Knob, Sockets, Switchcraft Jacks, Fuse Holder, and Power Cord; USA Power Transformer, & USA Classic 15W SE OT (US18031) for increased headroom and wattage capability as compared to a standard 5w Champ! The Output Transformer has outputs for 4 & 8 ohms. We will also include all the Cloth Push-Back Wire you need to do the job. Tear the guts out of that solid state combo or cruddy head and build this inside. Great for DIY Builds. All you need is a Chassis, Cabinet, & Speaker!!! The upgraded USA Classic 18031 15W OT will not automatically make your amplifier 15W, as there are 2 ways to build this. If you choose to use a standard 6V6GT power tube, the headroom and overall bandwidth is increased as compared to a standard 5w Champ. If you wish to get the 15w from this amplifier by using a 6L6GC, EL34, or KT66, we suggest installing the 470 ohm 10W cathode resistor instead of the stock 5W resistor for increased durability. That resistor is listed here: 470 ohm 10W All Transformers are all Made in USA. Warm up that soldering Iron!!!

If you purchase this kit "With Tubes" you will receive: 6V6 or 6L6 x 1, 5Y3 x 1, 12AX7 x 1.
NOTE: YOU WILL NEED A CHASSIS, SEE OUR 5F1 CHASSIS LISTED BELOW.
