What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Serious hardware for serious tone!  If mid-sixties British Rock/Blues are the target, this EL84-based take on the AC15 and marshall 18 watt circuits is a guaranteed bullseye every time it powers up.  Another great example of how modern build quality is often the best vessel for preserving classic, vintage tone.

Manufacturer's Description from Other

Evolved from some of the Mid Sixties best low powered amplifiers. The 2xEL84, Cathode Biased, Class A sound is that of astonishing warmth, depth, harmonic richness all in a small package that allows big-amp sound on small stages, in the studio or at home.

Trem channel – 12AX7 based with a single tone knob and an organic Bias tremolo activated by a footswitch. This channel is the one for many of your classic British tones from your favorite Blues and Rock records.

Color Channel – EF86 (pentode) based with a tone knob and 6-way color switch that adjusts the mid focus. This channel is reminiscent of the British Invasion sound until you push it hard via the Booster Switch and then it flips into ultra-rich, harmonic saturation that defines modern day boutique amplifiers. Introduced in 2005.
