We are making our Tweed 5E3 Deluxe amp available as a kit. The price is $445 USD Everything is included except speaker and cabinet.

We are now shipping the Tweed kit with a significantly overrated power transformer so it runs cooler and the Output Transformer has BOTH 8 AND 4 ohm taps so you can now safely connect up an 8 ohm extension cabinet.

Shipping not included. $40 shipping in North America. Canadian Customers pay applicable sales tax.

The chrome chassis is made in Canada using our artwork. We eliminated the ground switch and labeled it a Standby switch. The chassis is tapped to fit the tube mounting screws and jack mounting holes are punched to fit the supplied insulating shoulder washers. Our grounding scheme is proven to be better and quieter than the original and other designs. In addition, we designed a proper way to mount the eyelet board and had holes punched in the chassis to suit.

Transformers are key to the sound of an amp. Ours are made by Heyboer in the USA exclusively for Trinity Amps using our design specifications. Like all Trinity transformers, these are heavy duty, well built and intended to last a life-time - unlike some lower cost products. The Power Transformer delivers 400 VDC B+ with Sovtek 5Y3 or 360 VDC B+ with JJ in this application. The 6.3 V is center tapped so no awkward grounding resistors are required - another improvement. The output transformer has heavier guage windings and is based on the Fender #108 design now with 4 AND 8 ohm taps..

Features:

* Chromed Welded Steel Chassis with White Lettering - 14.5W X 4.125D X 2.625H
* Switchcraft Jacks
* Carling Switches
* Belton tube sockets with tube retainers or shields
* Carbon Composition resistors
* Type 715P Orange Drop capacitors
* 1/8" GP03 eyelet board
* 22 guage hook-up wire. Pre-twisted 20 guage heater wire.
* JJ 6V6, 12AX7, EH 12AY7, Sovtek or JJ 5Y3 Complete Tube set
* Heyboer Custom Transformers with dual Voltage 117/234 @ 60/50
* 60 + pages of Full Documentation.
* Larege format 11" X 17" Layout & Schematic


Note: Most companies charge extra for Switchcraft Jacks, Carling Switches, Carbon Comp resistors, Export voltages and provide thinner eyelet board material. And most provide minimal or no documentation or support. We invite you to compare products.

It's built old school. Sounds and looks vintage Deluxe!

Buy your Kit with confidence!

Stephen; is this chassis for a combo and not a head configuration? I'm hoping you changed your mind since the last time we talked.

Combo. Still.

But you can build a head cab around this chassis. A cab would need to be about 8-1/2" deep in total I think. I investigated this with another vendor & found out they used a combo chassis for heads.

The output transformers are straight - like the original. Like a choke! More expensive, more original, more better!

Coco, the link is broken. It has an extra character at the end "="

It's listed as:

http://www.guitarscanada.com/content/38 ... -kit.html=

Should be:

Excellent review. I'm enjoying my Trinity Deluxe! :D
