5LO Black Snake
A live edge slab of koa and epoxy resin poured with a purple sheen. This is the 2nd koa baffle we've offered but the 1st one made. The epoxy resin has some faults in the finish - scratches and bubbles. But the koa is gorgeous so scrapping it wasn't an option.
This is the legendary Super Lead Overdrive built in our 20 watt chassis and transformer set. Designed in Seattle, the preamp is a spot-on recreation of the 1987 high gain 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.
