Percolator 2W Tube Guitar Amp (valve amp) DIY kit

The Percolator 2 Watt Tube Amp (valve amp) DIY KIT is perfect for electric guitar, cigar box guitar and harmonica. Ideal for bedroom, apartment, practice, studio, or stage. Unlike any other production guitar amp, it has an all-tube signal path that uses only one (NOS) Compactron tube (valve). The single volume knob allows for warm, rich, clear tones at lower levels and aggressive overdriven tones at higher levels — all at a moderate volume. The kit includes everything you need to build this low watt amp as shown. You can finish the cabinet any way you like, or mount the head into your own cab. See the “Documentation” tab below to download our colorful, detailed manuals and videos. They provide clear, step-by-step instruction on how to build your very own Percolator tube amp!
