Defender 5H MOD

Quick Overview

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 MOD 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!


Kustom Engineers took the great sounding Defender 5H and lifted the virtual hood to tweak it's 5 Watt motor. The results were astonishing. The Defender 5 Hot Mod (Defender 5H MOD) is made for vintage tube amp tone. Ceramic capacitors were upgraded with polyester film and electrolytic styles. Larger cap values allow more bottom end and more gain. The Defender 5H MOD has a livelier tone that is harmonically rich. Better sounding distortion similar to tweed and British-style circuits is delivered with bigger note bloom usually heard only in boutique and vintage amplifiers. To dial in the Hot Mod sound we used vintage "chicken head" style knobs on the Bass Response and Volume controls.
