Milkman Sound Unveils Limited-Edition 18W Tweed

A limited-edition collaboration between Tim Marcus from Milkman Sound, and Billy Rowe from Rock ‘n’ Roll Relics.

San Francisco, CA (October 26, 2017) -- The Milkman 18-watt tweed amplifier is a limited edition collaboration between Tim Marcus from Milkman Sound, and Billy Rowe from Rock ‘n’ Roll Relics. The amplifier is an homage to an early cathode biased version of the Fender Tremolux, which is known to be one of the greatlow power amplifiers of all time.

The 18W Tweed is a single-channel amplifier with controls for volume, tone, tremolo speed, and depth. There are two instrument inputs for high and low signal level. The preamp is 12AX7 based with extended top end presence. Tremolo and phase inversion are combined into the second 12AX7 which cascades to a 6V6 push pull power amplifier. A 5Y3 rectifier tube gives this amplifier a classic “touch sensitive” feel along with the cathode biased power section.

The oversize cabinet is artfully aged by Billy Rowe, and was designed from an original later period Tremolux. Milkman designed a custom control plate which has also been aged, and the cabinet features a deluxe leather handle from El Dorado Guitars. The Celestion Alnico Blue speaker comes standard in the amplifier.

Like all Milkman amplifiersthe 18W Tweedis built onto a custom garolite turret board with Mercury Magnetics transformers, Jupiter capacitors, and cloth covered wire.

Retail price $3099
