Our friend Eddie Haddad sits with Mojotone Amp Category and Product Manager and talks about the Mojotone GA-5 Style Amp Kit.
Originally produced from 1954-1956 the GA-5 was often called Gibson’s answer to Fender’s 5C1- Wide Panel Tweed Champ. Both the Champ and the GA-5 used a 6SJ7, 6V6 and 5Y3 tube compliment and shared a very similar schematic and part assortment. Often over looked and undervalued, the GA-5 is a fantastic recording amp that loves to be pushed and also makes a great living room amp that puts out a warm clean tone at lower volumes.
Mojotone brings the GA-5 circuit back to life with the Mojotone GA-5 Style Kit. Featuring a classic TV Front cabinet, vintage inspired circuit now using a 6V6, 12AX7 and 5Y3 tube compliment – this unsung classic is the perfect amp kit to get you started on your amp building journey.
We offer a completely hand-wired GA-5 style amp assembled by our expert builders right here at Mojotone headquarters. Our in-house technicians have an extreme attention to detail and take great pride in their work -- our builds are 100% guaranteed.
For those players who are a little more "hands-on," we also offer the amplifier as a kit with a variety of options including small parts only, full kit, export specs, and more.
