Same great Sock Monkey tone, now with 18W of output & a 12″ Celestion Greenback. You asked for it, you got it! The Sock Monkey 18/12 features a slightly larger cabinet that holds a 12″ Celestion Greenback and a new larger output transformer for closer to 18 watts and more headroom. It runs 2x EL84 output tubes and 3x 12AX7 preamp tubes. VOLUME, TREBLE, BASS, and MASTER controls, as well as a pull BOOST on the volume control allow many tonal possibilities. This is our decidedly British sounding combo, it’s tone is in between a AC-15 and an 18 watter with more gain.
With a classic NOS 5879 pentode pre-amp tube and a dual 6V6 power section, the Organ Grinder has a unique yet familiar tone. Our love of the 50′s Gibson Les Paul and Fender Tweed Deluxe amps were the inspiration for this unique amp. We also crafted another of our retro-style cabs, skinned in Vintage Briar and Fawn accented tolex. Controls are VOLUME (pull to switch between Tweed or GA-40 style tone stack), TREBLE, BASS, and CUT (defeat-able when turned fully counterclockwise). On the back is a switch to run the NOS 5879 in TRIODE or PENTODE mode. The speaker is a 12″ Celestion Greenback. This little monster will get you in Walsh, Neil Young, and Gibbons territory.
