• We provide a layout and a schematic, but we do not include step by step assembly instructions.

• Lead time for kits is at least 4 weeks and ebbs and flows with the world’s production/supply.

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.

    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!

    I just got my Low Power Tweed Twin from the guys at Weber. I bought kit and elected to have them build it for me. Mike Mc Quilling did the chassis build. He did a very neat job on this. I got the aged tweed covering and very pleased with this. This is first try With Weber on both amp and speakers. I gotta say I am blown away. This is what an amp is suppose to sound like. Only thing I cant imagine is if this is a low power what must the high power sound like.

    Thanks guys,
