A lot of the Weber kit parts are some of the cheapest parts you can find. The amps don't sound bad when finished but you can count on replacing switches, tube sockets and other parts throughout the life of the amp. The jacks are especially bad so don't even consider using them. At least get some Switchcraft jacks if you are going to build a Weber kit (caution - the orientation of connections on the two types of jacks are different).
There was also a major screw up with the cabinets that took me 6 months to finally get a refund after many emails and finally threatening to file a dispute with the credit card company. I understand some people are still trying to get cabinets for kits ordered many months ago. Read the references to Tubegarden on the Weber forum.
Overall I had a very bad experience.
