Product Overview

This is the legendary Super Lead Overdrive tone built in our 20 watt chassis and transformer set. Designed in Seattle, the preamp is a spot-on recreation of the 1987 high gain SLO benchmark used by countless pros. Improvements made are replacement of the original's antiquated channel switching with modern relays, heater routing to reduce noise, and integration of all components to a single PCB.

The harmonically rich, touch responsive and smooth high gain of the original is here. Assembled in Northern California from US-made and imported parts. Each amp is built one at a time and hand-serialized. 

Features:

  • Crunch and Overdrive channels
  • 5 12AX7 preamp tubes
  • 20 watts from 2x EL84 power tubes
  • Tube-buffered, pedal-friendly effects loop
  • Hand-soldered, thick (purple) PCB with through hole construction. High-quality components throughout
  • Channel footswitch included

Options:

  • Clean / Crunch switch on Channel One - without this switch we can hardwire to either Clean or Crunch at your preference. 
  • Bright switch
  • Front-panel channel switching with Overdrive indicator LED
  • Rear-mounted variable DEPTH control
  • Acrylic control panel overlay color
  • Many tolex and front baffle options at no additional cost
  • Oversized Offset cabinet. Baffle will be the same color as the cabinet +$29

Because we use the same acrylic overlays for all amps, optional switches are not labeled on the front.

    Love it! Great sound, great construction. Highly recommend the rear depth control. Super loud for 20 Watts!

    At the price point it was a no brainer to be able to customize the amp looks-wise and feature-wise. It didn't take me long to dial in a really good heavy tone, but it's also great for classic rock crunch down to very nice cleans. Plus the size and weight are a welcome improvement over unnecessarily large and heavy amps. Don't let 20 watts fool you, this amp CRANKS and I can keep master volume just under 2, anything more isn't needed with a mic'd cab going through the monitors. Plus dealing with Doug is a breeze!
