- 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.
FINE PRINT: Weber kits are sold only with the guarantee from the buyer, builder, and subsequent seller that no trademarked names or company logos other than Weber or the builders name will be placed anywhere on the kit. 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 5F1 Amp Kit
Great little amp!
Great little amp!
I just finished building a 5F1. What a great, bare-bones, fantastic-sounding little amp this is! Fantastic clean sound, awesome gritty vintage rock sound when pushed past 6, and surprisingly loud! The Class A sound is everything I have always heard everyone rave about.
What a nice amp. If you are on the fence about searching for a vintage or reissue amp give this company some serious consideration. I bought a princeton reverb reissue and had them fit a speaker for it that opened the amp right up. I wanted a nice little practice amp and decided to give weber a shot. What a good choice. I had one of there tech's wire it up for me. I wish I had them put their version of the princeton together for me. They know how to get an amp to get the sound you are after. The amp was shipped fast and packed well. This amp is clean until you get to about 5 on the volume. Then it starts breaking up and gets good and dirty all the way up. It has a nice full round sound for a 5 watt amp. I highly recommend using this company. Just go for it. You will not be disappointed. Music makes the world a better place. Rock on. Bill
