Hot rod tones pushed through a 12 inch speaker.
The Hot Rod amplifier takes a tweed blues amplifier and gives it the true vintage treatment with lacquered tweed covering and a vintage-style 12 inch speaker. An all-tube signal path using a pair of output tubes and three preamp tubes generates its power. Add reverb and flexible controls, and you're in business. And just look at that chrome panel, and the lacquer tweed finish with pinstripe grille cloth, and those vintage pointer knobs!
Pros: Great Looking, Great Price, Awesome Sound
Cons: Glue Marks on Tweed
Great amp at a great price. The tweed was a bit shoddy where it was glued together, hence the 4 star rating for quality. This amp rocks, though. Smooth sounds of the old days echo from it's speaker. A must have for any retro guitar rocker.

Pros: Great sound
Cons: Knobs are cheap.
These guys were awesome. I had an issue with my first purchase and they sent a replacement while I was still on the phone with customer service. The return was free and I turned the whole process around in a few days. The amp is now performing fine, but I was a little disappointed with the response of the unit. For the price, I thought the knobs would be a little less cheesy...I ended up replacing them about 2 weeks in. Otherwise, the sound is great!

My new adopted amp of choice. Really bought this as a backup to my existing Twin setup. But within 2 days, it was front and center with my Twin relegated to the bench. Don't let the tweed suit fool you...this guy brings serious dirt.

15 watts of pure Brit-inspired tone, pumping through a 12 inch speaker.
Solid citrus tone, with improved control.
100W of pure, all-tube sound at a low price.
A powerful, flexible jam and practice rig.
