Is there anything more fun than a low-wattage all-tube amp head that provides authentic, cranked up tube tone at modest volume levels? We think not. And did we say “simple?” The new Defender 5-watt Model 5H guitar head has one knob! (Volume) But the fun lies in hearing what this knob does as you slowly turn it up. Starting in the counterclockwise position, you’ll move through clean and clear tube tones to progressively dirtier sounds until this little sucker is just plain screaming!
This “clean-to-mean” response isn’t due to any overdrive or distortion circuit, it’s just the sound of the single EL84 power tube moving naturally into increased output distortion. And it’s great for cranking up and controlling the action right from your guitar’s volume control – no channel switching required!
Features include one 12AX7 preamp tube, one EL84 power tube and three speaker outputs (4, 8, and 16-ohm). By the way, the Defender 5H head is designed to match perfectly with the Defender 1x12 speaker cabinet. This cabinet is loaded with one 12-inch Kustom speaker that handles 30 watts. Check it out!
