Custom 2.E is our Custom 2.X but with one of Epic Amplification's Mod Boards installed for you. Based on the platform of our most-popular product ever, the 22H, C2.E is built with all of our usual quality standards but at much smaller quantities. Each Custom 2.E is hand-assembled, here in the USA, one at a time. This of course will create a lead-time as product won't be built into inventory, at least until such time most popular configurations are determined. Current lead time expectation is less than one week between order and shipment. USA only, for now.
Printed circuit board (PCB). This was already well renowned for thickness, durability and our large traces made for easy repair and mods. Now with through-hole plating and soldered by hand (original boards were wave soldered). We have taken that a step further by working with our friends at Epic Amplification on the 2.X board. They've updated and re-routed the circuit board and elevated the DC heaters for quieter operation.
Transformers have been upgraded too. Our original transformer set was already impressive - offering a lot more iron than our competitors. Now we've changed vendors and are building even bigger, more robust transformers in smaller handcrafted runs. Also available separately as a solder-in upgrade to your 20H, 20HV, 22H or Custom 22.
Cabinet is made from void-free plywood. Because we are now building in smaller quantities we can offer optional color choices. More colors coming soon, unless everyone just orders in black! It is also available naked for you bold do-it-yourself types.
Baffle this is the small part of the cabinet above the control panel where the logo is mounted. This is a cool option because you can create your own look by mismatching the covering of the baffle from the main cabinet. Also, you can send a message with your order and tell us to mount the logo in a different position from the standard center. Fits all of our legacy 20 watt cabinets too.
Control Panel Plexiglass choose from black or white, with more options coming down the road. Also fits 22H.
Depth accentuates the low end frequencies much like the presence control does for the high end frequencies. We offer it on the rear panel as a mod due to limited front panel space.
Tube upgrades are available for those who have a preference of brand, as tubes can make a distinct difference in your amp's tone and performance. If you have something specific in mind let us know and we can quote you - likely somewhat higher than the in-stock options which we buy in quantity discount.
