- 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.

Customer Reviews of Natalie Amp Kit
Natalie amp, a reall winner
Natalie amp, a reall winner
This was my 14th amp build, mostly Weber kits. Based on an earlier experience with the 5E3X2 kit with a quad of 6V6s, I decided to go with the Natalie. This amp sounds great! As with most kits, it is necessary to be flexible and accept that some adjustments have to be made. I found that using 1" instead of 3/4" spacers work better to mount the board. This helps clear the tube sockets. The pilot indicator broke, so had to source an actual Marshall unit. And, the impedance selector switch is so large that it touches one of the power tube sockets! I had to source a smaller switch (from Mojotone). i used 1 Ohm 1% 1W resistors on pin 1 of the power tubes so I could measure bias more conveniently. The resulting amp is wonderful. I'm obsessive about getting the best high headroom clean tone and this amp delivers. It's loud and clean and takes pedals beautifully.
