VK Champion Combo

Note - This kit is currently unavailable until further notice. .

Fender Style 5 Watt Valve Amp Kit The "VK Champion" complete with combo cab.


The kit is very similar to the Fender 5F1 "Champ" with the exception of the power supply. The valve rectifier has been replaced with silicon diodes, making the amp quieter and simpler to build.

This little amp has great tone and simplicity with only a volume control and one input jack socket. there is an extension speaker jack socket on the back panel to drive a larger speaker cab.

The kit is complete with all parts to finish, and includes the combo cabinet and 8" speaker fitted in place so when you finish building it really is ready to use.

VK Champion - Over Drivern



The components are all good quality and include British made transformers, carbon composite resistors and orange drop capacitors for the signal path.



The chassis is fully punched with all holes needed, so no marking out or drilling required.



The assembly is very simple with a colour wiring diagram, schematic wiring diagram for those that can understand the more technical approach and an assembly guide. The big difference with the wiring diagram for this kit is that wire lengths are marked along most wires, so the eyelet board can be assembled and wire's cut to the correct length before it is fitted in place. There is also an on line library of images to show stages of build, so if your not sure and need to see how it should look, there will be an image to help.
