  Friedman 2018 Smallbox 50 Head
(Item#495)(as new condition) 2018 Friedman Smallbox 50 head, new in the box, bought by a good customer and played a few times before deciding it was too loud for at home use. Ships in original box with footswitch and paperwork. The Friedman description: "The Smallbox is a 50 Watt Amp that features 2 channels with a separate Gain and Volume controls each. The amp has a shared EQ and FX loop. The 2 Channels are foot swichable. The First channel is voiced like the Classic Plexi amps of British fame. It cleans up very nicely with the guitar volume. With the guitar volume you can go from cleanish to crunch to that famous Plexi like growl. The second Channel has that famous Friedman higher gain distortion and crunch that we all love. This is a lot of amp in a 50 Watt package. The SmallBox takes pedals very well and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos, wahs, etc. The Smallbox also has ultra transparent Series FX loop that takes time based FX pedals and rack units equally well."

  Marshall 1967 JTM50 "Black Flag" Head In Original White Tolex Cab
(Item#253)(consignment)(LAYAWAY) VERY rare 1967 JTM50 "Black Flag" head in original white tolex cab and non-original white logo, transition amp between the JTM45 and JMP plexi heads, the first amp to use EL34 power tubes but still has a tube rectifier. I owned this amp about 12 years ago and sold it. The customer later sent it back to me to buy back and the amp was poorly packed so the bottom left corner of the cab cracked and the tolex ripped. I had a local repair guy glue and clamp the crack in the plywood, and then glue the tolex back down(see pictures). The amp also had a solid state rectifier for a while but has been restored back to original with the tube rectifier. The circuit is mostly all original with a replaced filter cap on the board and a small bias pot added. Amp is in great working condition. Please call for more details. Amp will ship in a road case that will have to be returned to me.

  Marshall 1967 Plexi 100w Superlead (The Holy Grail EVH Head!!)
(Item#115) 1967 Plexi 100w Superlead head, the "Holy Grail" of 100w heads!! Probably most known for being the Eddie Van Halen amp. This head has been in my personal collection for the last 13 years. The amp was completely gone thru by Victor Mason at The Plexi Palace and then originally sold to Matt Bruck, Eddie Van Halen's tech. Matt decided that he needed to sell the amp and sent it back to Vic who then called me right away knowing that I had been looking for one. Vic shipped it to me on approval but said if I returned it, he would know I was crazy! As this was one of the best sounding 100w heads he had heard. Other than some normal maintenance, the only 2 things done were a bias trim pot added, and a central ground for low noise. You can see the central ground in the last picture where all of the ground wires from the amp come together in one place. It is set up like Eddie’s amp and has an NOS quad of American 6CA7 power tubes. Please call for more details. (head will ship in a road case that must be returned to the store)

  MGL AmpWorks Lead Master 50 Amp Head
(Item#515) MGL AmpWorks Lead Master 50 (MGL50). 50 watt master volume circuit amp that started off as a clone of my personal 2204 Marshall head that I’ve owned for the last 23 years. I’ve had many of these amps thru my store and this one is the best I’ve heard. Many of the ’79 – ’83 2204 amps have a lower voltage mains transformer and most agree that these were the best sounding JMP and early JCM800 50w heads. The basic circuit and voltages of the MGL50 are based on my 2204, but it has evolved into a more versatile amp including some very useful features & options listed. GAIN STRUCTURE: The mini switch on the front panel next to the preamp knob allows you to switch between 2 different gain structures. In the down position you get the stock 2204 value for classic rock Marshall crunch. In the up position you get more gain that will easily cover most ‘80’s heavier rock and produces a very smooth and singing lead tone. NEGATIVE FEEDBACK: The "Voicing" switch on the back panel allows you to choose between 2 different taps on the output transfomer for the negative feedback signal . The "Classic" position is a bit darker, smoother and softer and in the "Modern" position it gets a little tighter, more aggressive and brighter with a bit more gain. EFFECTS LOOP: Uses the Metropoulos “Zero Loss” loop that incudes a “true bypass” switch. BUILD COMPONENTS: Locally made .090” aluminum chassis w/ welded and finish ground corners, gloss black powder coating and screened text with metallic gold ink, brass screws used in assembly. Period correct voltage mains transformer, Merren Audio hand wound paper bobbin 784-139 output transformer, Custom wound UK Dagnall power choke, ARS filter caps, PTP hand wired on in-house made turret boards, CTS pots, NOS Amphenol power tube sockets & Belton preamp tube sockets w/ gold anodized covers, 18 AWG mil spec Teflon insulated silver plated copper stranded wire, SoZo NexGen capacitors are used in all positions , 1 watt carbon film resistors, real UK Cliff jacks, Mullard reissue EL34 power tubes, NOS military grade Chinese 12AX7 preamp tubes, Swanson Cabinets 26” or 24” tolexed Baltic Birch head cab (tolex color choices at no extra charge) PRICING: BASE MODEL - $2,200.00 (comes w/ black knobs), KNURLED BRASS KNOBS - $40.00, NOS SIEMENS EL34 POWER TUBES - $75.00, HARDWOOD CAB (Figured Maple, Cherry, Black Walnut) - $300.00 CLICK HERE for YouTube sound clips

  MGL AmpWorks MGL20 Amp Head
(Item#514) MGL AmpWorks MGL20 head. The basic circuit of the amp is much the same as the MGL50, which is based on the JMP 50w 2204 master volume head. But with a custom low voltage mains transformer and a pair of 6V6 power tubes. So a killer master volume Marshall tone that's about 22 watts. Like the MGL50, the lower voltage makes the amp very smooth and sweet but still has plenty of Marshall like attitude! The main focus for the amp was that it had to sound great at low "at home" volumes, but also would do fine at lower volume band gigs and rehearsals. And it does all of that and then some!! Amp is available in 3 head cab sizes, 26"(standard 50 small box), 24" and a small 20" to fit on top of the smaller 1-12" speaker cabs without hanging over the sides. In the pictures posted, the first head is in a 20" cab, 2nd head is a Burgundy 24" and the rest are 26". There is also matching 24" 1-12" speaker cab now available. Just like the MGL50, this amp is all point to point hand wired and built by Guy Harvey. As with the MGL50, all high quality parts are used. The first .022uf cap in the circuit is an NOS Mullard Mustard cap, all others are SoZo tone caps, CTS pots, custom USA made transfomers, in-house made turret boards, mil spec teflon wire, NOS Chinese Military grade 12AX7 preamp tubes & choice of TAD or JJ 6V6 power tubes, .090" aluminum chassis w/ welded & ground corners, black powder coat and screened with metallic gold ink. The amp in either size head cab is $1,650.00 with the Metropoulos "Zero Loss" effects loop as an option for $180.00. Custom tolex colors are also available depending on what Swanson has in stock.
