Audio Amp Co | Tweed Classics


This one is my personal favourite. Small, lightweight and easy to carry.Fitted with a high SPL speaker loud enough for most applications, rehearsals and small stages.

This amp can do anything from clean to crunch with the guitar volume, for lead playing just add a good overdrive pedal or booster and you can play hard rock.

For some guitars and some players it could be too fat and too compressed when cranked, this can be varied via the Fat/Tight switches and the Hi/Lo bias switch. Amp loves single coils, Strats® and Teles®.
