Product Overview

Back in 2010 / 2011 we worked with THD Amplification to create PicoValve on the old Epiphone Valve 5 chassis and transformer set. PicoValve also featured biasing which allow for use of 6L6 or EL34 or other octal-based power tubes. After Pico was out of production for a few years we re-imagined it as Custom 5, to fill that 5 watt space in the market. 

Custom 5 has 2 12AX7 Preamp tubes and 1 Power tube. It comes with a 6L6 installed, which can be user-replaced with an EL34, without adjusting the bias of the amp. Just plug and play.

Also featured is our Mojo Tone solid state effects loop - the same loop as featured in 20HV - which is optimized to work with effects pedals. 

You can choose speaker outputs at 4, 8, and 16 ohms.

Normal operation is at 5 watts, with a 2 watt mode. 

Transformers are big, heavy iron, including a choke. 

  • Controls:

  • Bass Boost / Mid Boost Tone switch.

  • POWER: 5 or 2 watts via Pentode/triode mode

  • Black chassis comes with 6L6 installed. White chassis with EL34 installed.
