.....Has anyone's used the Mojo Deluxe Reverb kit before? I'm considering using that - or at least using their chassis, and i really like their cabinets. I like sourcing the parts myself but this is will be a relatively expensive build compared to the others i've done so i'm trying to see what'll make the most sense without over-spending.
Anything to look out for on a build like this?.....
If your using a Mojotone kit, check if they have the transformers in stock....they think 90 days is a fair time to wait for one on back order. Expect to be knocking down the B+ as the secondary on the PT is 354V which will give you problems if you want to have the voltages as per spec. Don't use their drawings supplied as it's full of mistakes, source your own schematics and photos of original amps and other peoples builds. So you know the circuit inside and out. Check the board and check it two or three times more it's all correct before you install it, you don't want to be be pulling it out with everything wired up for some stupid little slip up. Colour coordinate the wires so you know where they go, especially to the pots. Follow the original design for grounding as close as possible.
