The MOD102+ expands on the same all analog vacuum tube classic American circuit design combined with a British style Class A output section as the Original MOD102 with some much added special “+” features. These special features include a three position progressive toggle switch for off-standby-power and additional push-pull functionality for each control - pull out the bass control knob for “mid boost”, pull out the treble control knob for “bright”, pull out the volume control knob for “turbo”. These new features and a JJ ECC803-S (a long plate 12AX7 known for its complex mid range tones) allow for a wider variety of tones and extra control for the user.

Folks - just a really quick iPhone video of my Mod102+ Amp Build. REALLY happy that it worked! This was the first amp EVER that I build.
This is the demo & review video of the ModKitsDIY 102+ Amp Build!
Is it OK to flip this amp over and use it while upside-down in a combo amp?
Can I use this amp with high wattage speakers or do I need to get something with a lower power rating?
Is there a cage I can use with this amp like the MOD101?
I want to build this and install it in a combo cabinet and would like to include a reverb tank, can I add a reverb tank and pot to this kit?
Can use a 16ohm Speaker? And if so, what are the trade-offs?
What would happen if you swapped out the preamp tube for one with a little less gain?
Can I use the headphone Jack mod from the MOD 102 instructions on this amp?
hi.Guitar Amp Kit,inr price ?Thank you,
The MOD-102 amp pin (3) and pin (4) on V2 are connected, the MOD-102+ amp pin (3) and pin (4) on V2 are not connected. Why? Thank you
Would you happen to have a master volume version featuring 2 pre-amp tubes?
just want to say ....its brilliant ...scared of the process tho !!!! BRILL sound !!!!! well done !!!!!!!!
Can the PT handle the addition of one 12_7?
Also wondering why the caps in the power supply are different in the 102+
There is a Grey wire coming out of the 269EX Power transformer but there seems to be no presence of that said wire on the instructions. Can you please tell me if I need the wire or were the wire goes.
Can you recommend a supplier who makes a wood cabinet to put the mod 102 inside to protect it while Gigging...proper head cabinet etc...
Is it possible to get this little amp to output to line level after the power amp? There are a few products from the likes of Fryette and Laney that do this, thus allowing easy recording of the full tube amp sound. What would such a mod require?
Do the capacitors in this amp have a bleed resistor to discharge?
