j mascis jazzmaster demo

I’ve been meaning to make a short video demo video of the Mojotone Tweed Deluxe kit Clay and I built, but before I got around to doing that I ended up buying a Fender Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster which I really, really like a lot. So why not make a video demo using both? Better yet, why not make it after a sleepless night at the end of a really hard week when I’m feeling totally fried?

Just for fun I’ve also setup the Tweed Champ amp we built on an ABY switch with the Deluxe. I’m playing the Jazzmaster through a Strymon BigSky for reverb. During the demo I also use a Fulltone OCD and a tc electronic flashback. Video shot with my Samsung Galaxy 4, rubber-banded to a mike stand. No post processing on the audio. That’s one of my Beagles barking in the background at the end, and yes, those are LL Bean flannel boxers if you must know.

Hope you enjoy.



Mojotone Tweed Deluxe Amplifier Build

Some pictures from our Mojotone Tweed Deluxe amplifier build. This turned out to be a great sounding amp, probably my favorite at the moment. I plan on doing a more in-depth write up about the process and the things I learned building this amp and the Champ when I get a little free time, but for now here are the pictures.

Tweed Champ Clone

Short demo of the Mojotone Champ 5F1 clone that I built with my son. I’m playing a 1990 Gibson ES-335 through a Strymon BigSky Reverb pedal. I swapped out the stock JJ 6V6 power tube for a TAD 6V6.

Shot on my Galaxy S5 cell phone. Edited with iMovie. No ProTools or other post production on the audio track. What you hear is what the phone recorded. The slight hum at the beginning is the noise of the overhead ceiling fan. And yes, I should probably vacuum the carpet next time.
