Margasa Amplifiers Lady Deadlock
"The Lady Deadlock is Margasaуs first amp, which is an all-tube, point-to-point wired head that features military-grade potentiometers, Mercury Magnetic transformers, handwrapped leather upholstery, and 1"" Brazilian hard-pine cabinets. рThe overall tone of the Deadlock series is built to be clean and sparklingяand also take pedals and effects wellяbut as you drive up the volume and push the tubes harder, the output will begin to deliver a smooth and warm overdrive,с says Daniel Margasa.
