This is a clone of the Fender 5F1 Champ. Only the best available parts are used in this kit. Sprague Atom and F&T power filter caps. JB film caps. Carbon comp resistors. Cloth covered push-back wire. Point-to-point turret lug circuit board. JJ tubes. Magnetic Components Classic Tone transformers made in Chicago, IL USA. Power transformers have primaries so they can be wired for either 120V or 240V.
15 Watt Upgrade - The 5F1 traditionally uses a 5 watt single ended output transformer with a 6V6 power tube. If you select the 15 watt option, your kit will come with a larger single ended power transformer that allows you to use either a 6L6 power tube for 15 watts or still use a 6V6 power tube for the traditional 5 watts without having to rebias anything....you simply swap out the tubes. Note: If you select the 15 watt option, your kit will not automatically come with a 6L6 tube set. You must select which tube set you want to ship with your kit.
The tube set includes a JJ 5Y3, JJ ECC83/12AX7, and JJ 6V6. You can upgrade the power tube from the 6V6 to a 6L6.
Cabinet options - We offer 8", 10", and 12" speaker combo cabinets for this kit. We also offer just a head cab. Our cabinets are constructed from finger jointed 13 ply pine. We use real, genuine Fender tweed tolex.*Amp kits without any cabinet will usually ship next day. We make our cabinets in-house, by hand, to order. Please allow up to 2-weeks for delivery if ordering a cabinet.
