OVERVIEW

A portable powerhouse for the studio or practice.

The pure-tube preamp includes gain, full EQ, and bright, mid, and bass boosts. Big, robust transformers, including a choke, create a surprisingly massive sound from the low wattage. Also included is a pedal-friendly effects loop.

  • Tubes: two 12AX7 (preamp); one 6L6 (power amp) (can be replaced with an EL34)

Great low wattage tube amp with sweet tone. Love that I can get the tubes working without shaking the paint off the walls. Jet City does it again!

      Comments about Jet City Amplification Custom 5 5W/2W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I bought this to use as a lower powered version of my JCA20HV (the vintage 20 watt). It is just voiced quite differently. It has a lot of gain early on in the sweep and sounds a bit more modern than vintage. Putting 5751's in both preamp stages helped smooth out the sweep but still not the vintage sound for me. Still not bad for the price but the JCA20HV just has a higher quality sound.
