Park Amplifiers Introduces the Little Head 18 and Rock Head 50
The Park Little Head 18 features the same preamp and cathode follower driven tone stack as the Park 45.
New York, NY (July 8, 2015) -- Due to the popular demand for lower powered amps, Park introduces the Little Head 18, a smaller, lower powered version of its high quality, big tone, hand wired amplifiers. The Park Little Head 18 features the same preamp and cathode follower driven tone stack as the Park 45. What’s different is the addition of a highly variable power amp capable of using a number of octal based power amp tubes and an octal based rectifier tube socket that can use various tube and solid state plug-in rectifiers, plus a Post Phase Inverter Master Volume control (PPIMV) built into in a smaller size head cabinet.
User changeable output tubes include 6V6, 6L6 and EL34 and since the power amp is cathode biased with separate resistors on each power tube, no user biasing is necessary. User changeable rectifiers include 5Y3, GZ34 and solid state plug-in. Overall tone and power level will change (from 15 to 23 clean watts) depending on the choice of tubes. It is capable of beautiful, sparkling clean tones, overdriven blues from a hint of overdrive to full-blown OD and classic rock tones; all at playing levels that are suitable for the bedroom, studio or small club.
The Little Head features oversized power and output transformers, full power supply with choke, full featured two channel Park preamp with the addition of a Post Phase Inverter Master Volume, meticulous hand wiring and a strong, lightweight welded aluminum chassis.
The Park Little Head offers professional musicians various power levels, full bodied sound with no low-end compromise, superior tonality and feel, all at any volume level.

Rock Head 50
Due to the popular demand for channel switching amps, Park introduces the Rock Head 50, a channel switching version of its high quality, big tone, hand wired amplifiers. Based on the vintage Park Rock Head from the 1970s, the new Rock Head 50 offers what original 1970s Master Volume amps never offered; channel switching with both great clean and overdrive sounds with independent controls of levels.
The Rock Head 50 is capable of beautiful, sparkling clean tones, overdriven blues from a hint of OD to full-blown OD and classic rock sounds; all at any volume level. Belying its simple control layout, the RH50 has some clever circuitry which allows it to perform it’s magic. Unlike most amps with a “high gain” OD channel, the Rock Head’s OD channel’s can be used as a second clean channel or produce bluesy overdrive to classic rock with just Gain and Master controls and no extra gain switches.
The Rock Head 50 features Volume, Bright Switch, Treble, Mid, Bass, Brightness, Gain, Master, EL34 power tubes, a 12AX7 driven preamp with switchable cascaded gain channel, cathode follower tone stack, passive series effects loop and overall post phase inverter master volume (PPIMV).
