Tweed Champ Vacuum Tube Amp Kit
By James Grahame
Tube Depot's Champ guitar amp kit ($499.95) is a nod to the early days of rock and roll. It's simple enough to build that even first timers shouldn't have trouble. It features an ultra efficient Jensen MOD 8-20 speaker, multi-tapped 100 - 240 V supply and a 3/4" solid pine cabinet. The chassis is a fully chromed reproduction of a vintage Fender Tweed 5F1 Champ. A detailed instruction manual with over 50 color photos is available for free download [pdf], and there's a great "how to" video guide on YouTube.
