Percolator 2W 1×8 Tube Combo DIY Kit



Suitable for ages 13+, the amp is a fun, challenging electronics DIY project. The cabinet is a simple woodworking project requiring minimal tools and experience.

Perfect for electric guitar, cigar box guitar and harmonica. Ideal for bedroom,  apartment, practice, studio, or small gigs. Unlike any other production guitar amp, it has an all-tube signal path and uses only The 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. Lightweight, compact, easy to carry & set up!

  • Custom power transformer
  • Jensen C8R 8-Ohm speaker
