- Technical Details
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.

"Hey guys, these kits aren't Lego™ sets. They require some thought, experience, and the correct tools. If you do not think you have the time, ability, nor tools to do this, maybe this isn't for you right now. 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.

By clicking the submit button on the order form, the buyer is certifying his or her compliance with this agreement and guarantee. Failure to comply may result in legal action by the owner of the logo or trademarked name. Buyer agrees to absolve Weber of any legal liability which may result from noncompliance of the agreement.
Customer Reviews of 5E8A Amp Kit
I own a Tweed Bassman 1959 LTD, and a Tweed Deluxe. I wanted a Tweed Twin but I didn’t want to pay $3k for it. I did the research and decided to go with Weber’s 5E8-A kit. After realizing that I have not ever even wired a light socket, I arranged for Mike MQ of Weber to build my amp for me at a very reasonable price. Once completed, the cabinet and parts shipped very well protected. I must say how impressed I was when I reviewed the workmanship and quality of the cabinet and parts. The tweed cabinet is just as good or better than my Bassman and Deluxe. The sound of the amp is so good! Not a buzz or a hiss to be heard. Mike was a great communicator and kept me in the loop during the build process. I would highly recommend a Weber amp to anyone looking for a lower cost alternative to the brand. I am extremely happy with the decision to go with Weber and to have Mike complete the job!
