Thank you for your interest in Weber Amplifier Kits. We would like for you to read the following information so you are aware of some of the issues involved with building an amp kit.

• We provide a layout and a schematic (on the Technical Details tab), but we do not include step by step assembly instructions.
• Troubleshooting advice can be found in the Kitbuilding Forum.
• Kits with cabinets ship as one complete shipment.
• Lead time for kits is approximately 2-3 weeks.

Please Read: The complexity of Weber kits ranges from very simple to extremely complex. We do not recommend anyone attempting to build any of our kits that are rated at 3 or higher in complexity unless you have the assistance of a qualified amp builder or electronics technician. Because of the sensitivities to wire placement, grounding schemes, and other parts related issues, troubleshooting the potential malfunctions and noises can be very frustrating without the experience and knowledge. All Weber amplifier kits have lethal voltages that are present even after power is removed. You must exercise extreme caution when working with high voltages. Before ordering any of these kits, you should look over the schematics and layouts provided for each kit to ensure there is enough information for you to feel comfortable building the kit. Click here for an explanation of complexity ratings.

If you still want to build one of our kits, but are a little uncertain, please enlist the aid of a qualified tech." -- Ted Weber.

5E3 build

What a great little amp! This amp was a learning experience for me. I had built other kits but came up against some issues. First- this circuit has the characteristic of interaction between the two channels because of the shared tone control. I found a circuit that used a double tone pot and a few parts to isolate the channels successfully. Second- the screen supply resistor is under-rated and susceptible to burning out. At first, I just replaced with a 5W resistor. Later decided to replace the resistor with a choke. After some research, I learned that Leo added 470 Ohm screen resistors on later amps to improve reliability, so I did that. The tone appeared to not change but no more tube failures. I finished off the tweed with Minwax satin Honey Pine urethane.
