I've built many pedals, but this is just my 2nd amp build, as I built a Mojotone 5E3 kit last year which turned out great. I'd like to compare the experience of the Mojotone 5E3 to this Weber 5F1 kit. I think that's where the value of this post lies, as we don't need another general 5F1 build thread. I've been buying Weber speakers for almost 20 years now, so I decided to try their amp kit instead of Mojotone--mainly because I knew I wanted the 8" Weber Signature Alnico speaker, and if I was going to pay for that shipping...might as well get it all from Weber to save money. Weber also had the best price going, although not by much. I appreciate and respect Weber speakers, and I will certainly order from them again in the future, but there were several snags with this project. First off, they only give you $15 back for each transformer if you decide to opt out of theirs. This is fine for the $25 OT, but the PT sells for $52.50 retail. Also, one week after I placed my order they had a sale on amp kits for 11% off. Since my order hadn't shipped yet (and wouldn't for several weeks) I emailed them to ask if they would give me the 11% off, but received no response. Most importantly, when my order did arrive it was missing several parts. It was missing a 100K resistor, the 470 ohm resistor I should have been sent was actually 1K, and the power cord cabinet clamp thingy was missing. I emailed and they replied a couple days later saying they'd send me the missing pieces. Based on the lack of response from my 11% sale email, I figured they'd be slow to help out, so I went ahead and ordered the parts I needed through Amazon since I could have delivery in just 1-2 days. This meant that I had paid a bit more than I thought I would for the kit. I could have waited for Weber to sort it out, but I wanted to complete the build ASAP so I could play with it on my 1-week vacation (staycation). Mojotone didn't skimp out on any parts when I built their 5E3, and they included a nice plastic case with dividers instead of a ziploc baggy. All parts were included and of decent quality, whereas Weber omitted a few crucial parts, and a couple of their parts were pretty cheap--mainly the chrome-painted plastic on/off lamp assembly (I've since ordered a proper metal one). I was happy to see Weber supplied quality Switchcraft input jacks though! Both builds turned out great, but obviously the Weber kit was a bit more of a hassle due to missing parts. The cabinets were of comparable quality, and I shellac'd/lacquer'd them both myself. Oh and I went with Classic Tone 18030 and 18019 transformers for the 5F1 and I'm getting 380v plate voltage using either NOS 5Y3 or new JJ 5Y3 (only 1-2 volts difference). I'm also happy to report that my Weber 5F1 is not the least bit noisey, barely any hum at all. Ultimately I would order from Weber again, as I've gotten good service from them for many years, but since the simplest of builds (5F1) with such a small parts list couldn't be sent to me without missing pieces ... I'd definitely shop around first.
