From bell-like cleans with real depth to plexi-esque rock crunch to metal.
The Lil' MoFo by Hayden is a tube guitar amp with a whole lot of attitude. But unlike other mini guitar amps, the MoFo is definitely not a one trick pony, the 2W MoFo combo does it all, whilst aimed for the Studio and playing along via the Aux mini jack in, headphone mini jack out and recording out.
Designed from the ground up The Lil' MoFo has been engineered as a smaller, lightweight amp for the professional musician to rehearse and record with, clothed in steel with an industrial strength coated texture finish. Integral handle and clean simple front and rear panel design complete the exterior.
Internally the amplifier features the oversized high performance transformers Hayden has become famous for. The high-gain circuitry has been tuned after hours of consultation with many renowned guitarists to fulfill the desires of today's modern studio and recording musician.
The mini jacks Aux in and headphone, along with the record out, allow easy access to the amazing range of tones available from this single channel amplifier.
The Lil' MoFo may be tiny, but it punches way above its weight. With high-gain stages the Lil' MoFo does it all from classic clean tones through biting classic rock crunch to full metal mayhem.
At 2W the amp gives out the pure overdrive you expect from the output stage of bigger amps but at lower volumes. You can let the Lil MoFo scream without the neighbors screaming at you. Perfect for those late night studio sessions and tour practice.
Integral handle, keeping the size to a minimum along with valuable desktop space and an 8 Ohm speaker output, the Lil Lil' MoFo can drive a wide range of cabs from the custom designed Hayden 1 x 8" (Celestion Super 8) to boutique 1x12 in the studio right up to a 4x12 on the concert stage. And the super cool "Magic Eye" indicator tube displays the amplifier's performance, you will not be able to take your eyes off of this.

Comments about Hayden Lil' Mofo 2 2W High-Gain Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
There seems to be a trend in tube amps where "preamp" tubes are used to drive speakers. Hayden has come up with their version of the small, tube drive practice amp, and it is so bad, that I can't even use it's name in the review!.. Move over Blackstar! First feature that makes this amp is that it has a full complement of tone controls, bass, mid, and treble controls. Next, is the external speaker jack (I have a 1x12 with Vintage 30) and hooking this bad-boy up to an external makes this live up to its name, Lil'M*f*! Unlike GMD, I like reverb, and this amp has a good sounding, digital one. The last feature is a rather unique take on it, an MP3 (1/8" stereo jack) input so you can play along with your favorite music, the unique part is the Mix control which allows you to blend in the sound to match your guitar's volume... nice touch.
Ok, with the 8" speaker, the low end misses the mark, but not by much. It is an 8" speaker! The gain control at half, volume at half, humbucker equipped guitar up all the way, it has some mild, thick crunch that was a staple of blues and blues rock in the 70s and 80s. Turn the volume down on the guitar, and it will clean right up! With the gain up to 3 o'clock you can get some real nice distortion tones from it, though not metal, great for hard rock (think 80s and 90s shredder/gods). I haven't spent a lot of time with the master volume dimed, but when it is, the distortion that you get is noticeably different than with the gain dimed, a little more raw and gritty. I've even plugged in a few pedals... Very nice! With all that said, the beauty is the external speaker jack... Hook this Lil'M*f* up to a 1x12 (or 4x12) and it's a "whole, new world!" The sound gets bigger, smoother, and the amp get louder. The bass control responds as you'd expect, but the amp never gets muddy. It doesn't have the Vox chime, but I'm not into that sound, I like the 80s grind that I grew up listening to on the stereo, and this amp nails it! Mic it up, and you can get great sound with some volume for gigging.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a nice amp with smooth breakup and enough gain to get the job done for rock 'n' roll, you don't need to look much further... If you are looking for all that and some chime, go get a Vox. Overall, a great practice and recording amp, try one out, you won't be disappointed!
