This sweet little 5 watt, Single-Ended 6SJ7/6V6 pentode amp is based on the earliest 50s Fender Champs and Gibsons and produces a warm, growly, Chicago Blues tone in a grab-and-go package.
This design incorporates a Tone Control which can be bypassed as desired so it is perfect for small gigs and recording.
With an optional the 6L6 switched in, 10 watts can easily handle larger venues.

It is Excellent with Guitars and Harps and takes pedals well. It goes from sparkling clean to brown and creamy distortion. Incredible sensitivity to attack, very nice distortion when you turn it up or use the Hi input jack.
With the 6L6 option that the originals didn’t offer, it can seriously bark in the larger venues!

Harpdog Brown, 3-Time Maple Blues Harp player of the year, uses his all the time.

True to the era, all octal tubes were used in this Single Channel amp. The circuit is extraordinarily simple, using one New Old Stock (NOS) 6SJ7 pentode in the preamplifier section to provide a single stage of voltage amplification, one 6V6 beam power pentode in the power amplifier section, a 5Y3 tube rectifier tube and a single volume knob with useful tone control which can be bypassed
We added a bias switch so players can use a 6L6 and also a 4/8 ohm output switch and two output jacks used in conjunction with our custom made Heyboer output transformer. Total versatility.
