    Second 18 watt clone build, tubedepot to mojotone! Need help!

    My first 18 Watt build was fun and easy and very laid out with extensive instructions so I thought I would try the 18 watt tmb clone from mojotone. Maybe I should have read more? I had no idea that mojotone zydia of instructions was nothing more than a schematic and a shotty pictorial that mojotone told me not to use.

    I don't know if I should just send it back or attempt to build this but I'm going to need some help! Anyone else there that may have some pictures and some advice on the issues they had with the grounding and how they solved it.

    I built many amps but they have all had extensive instructions and I can read a schematic about as well as I can read music notes.. Very slow!

    Help?

    Hi Denmar, Im about in the same boat. I didn't buy a kit, but doing lots of reading on various blogs. I started with a schematic, made a parts list, and found vendors for all of the parts. As of today, waiting for the cabinet to arrive.

    Schematic reading comes with time and practice. Im fairly new as well.

    I think you should re-post in the other forum on amp building

    Home/Forum/Amplification/Guitar Amps/Build Your Amp

    There seems to be lots more activity and REALLY sharp people posting there, amp techs, audio engineers and amp builders.

    Yeah, man, keep that kit and build it!

    Ceriatone has some good layout drawings for the TMB. Easily accessed with an image search.
