20 watts from 2x EL84
Designed by Epic Amplification, the new BROWN PCB fits into our 22H/Custom 2.X platform of chassis/cabinet and transformer set. The Brown sound is thick and heavy and dark with tons of gain. There are different versions of the origin story to this sound, and we believe our version evokes the original Jose mod which was later made widely available by F-man and other interpretations.

- 20 watts from 2x EL84 power tubes

Gain Boost option
Channel TWO: A faithful JOSE / F-man mod delivering the Brown Sound.
The Harry Browne switch option brings more of the JOSE / F-man full gain. If you don't want the upgrade to the switch this can be hard-wired in either position
- Saturation switch - adds diode clipping
- Rear-mounted variable DEPTH control
- Front-panel channel switching with Overdrive indicator LED
- Upgrade to Heyboer or Mercury US-made output transformers.
- Acrylic control panel overlay color
- Many tolex and front baffle options at no additional cost
- Oversized Offset cabinet +$30
Because we use the same acrylic overlays for all amps, optional switches are not labeled on the front. We can identify those positions in notes when the build is complete.
Assembled in California from US-made and imported parts. Each amp is built one at a time and hand-serialized.
