Mod Kits DIY Tube Guitar Amp Kit – MOD102
October 30, 2010 by Charlie
A great place to start for those interested in building their own tube amp — The MOD102 is based on classic American tube circuit design combined with a British style Class A output tube section. At low volume it produces a clean chiming tone that moves into smooth overdrive at higher volumes. All parts are included along with a pre-drilled aluminum chassis, wire, and tubes (one EL84 and one 12AX7).
MOD Kits are designed to give both novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build their own amps and effects pedals. All kits come with easy to follow instructions and use point-to-point wiring. A pre-drilled enclosure and all parts are included. All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder. The effect pedals operate on a 9V battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.
A complete listing of kits available from MOD Kits is as follows:
MOD 101 Guitar Amp Kit – 60 watts of tube power using your choice of either 6L6’s or EL34’s. Choose from 32 different variations of the circuit to suit your tonal preferences including: Tone Stack, Input Voltage Divider, Negative Feedback, Bypass Cap & Power Tube.
