    Yeah, I just got an email from Mojo about it. It sounds promising, I'd love to hear what it sounds like.

    Mojo has a forum and Doug Roccaforte has posted a bit of info there:

    "Imagine a cross between a Vox AC30 and a Masterlead,
    and you got it. Very warm midrange OD, very 60's
    non master sounding even though it has one!"

    "
    The amp is 50watts, 3-ECC83, 2-EL34. It can also run all of the other large power tubes with a rebias."

    "
    This is my design, and just like with my product line
    I don't give away any of my work.
    We're not going to be posting any drawings ect...."

    The tone is a cross between a masterlead, and vox.
    If you could take their overdrive tones and blend them,
    that's exactly what this sounds like.
    Very smooth, not jagged like more modern brit tones can be.
    It's a sound all its own, you really can't compare it to any one
    amp. Having the footswitchable preamp controls is a major gift,
    I'm building mine soon!

    I'm guessing the kit comes with a schematic/layout? Does it come with any other kind of build instructions? Looks really cool.

    Yes, it comes with both a schematic and layout diagram.
    On the mojo site/forum, I'll be adding mods for it as time rolls on.....
