A limited anniversary edition of a current rock favorite.
The Kustom '72 Coupe 40th Anniversary Combo Amp dishes out 72W of complex, harmonically rich tone, reacting to your most subtle playing techniques. And when you need more presence, it's there. Technically speaking, the '72 Coupe amplifier runs on 4 - 6L6 power tubes with a 12AX7 preamp. Furthermore, it uses a self-biased power amp design in tandem with a secondary, partially fixed-bias technique. This makes the Kustom '72 Coupe an amplifier with the best of both worlds: self-biased reliability and the increased power and dynamics of a fixed bias design.
Drawing on its heritage, Kustom teamed up with U.S. speaker manufacturer Eminence to produce a new driver exclusively for the Coupe Series. The result is the KEI (Kustom-Eminence Integrated) Turbo 12 speaker. With its distinctive aluminum dust cap, the Turbo 12 is a modern interpretation of a vintage speaker design that gives players a taste of the original speaker's tonal properties, which were great for cleaner tones, while successfully handling more modern, high-gain sounds as well.
The '72 Coupe features 2 channels (Rhythm/Lead), each with own Master Volume control which lets users dial in anything from gritty, medium-gain sounds to scorching, full-on hard rock tones. Each channel also provides a Pull-Bright function that, when activated, tightens up the low-end response for a chunkier, British-type tone. When not pulled, the tonal response is fuller and rounder, a more "American" tone. By the way, the EQ (Bass, Middle, Treble) reflects pure, vintage Kustom specifications.
The '72 Coupe also provides an Accutronics Reverb unit with Tone control (another vintage Kustom feature) and classic Tremolo and Vibrato effects. You'll also find a Tube-Driven Effects Loop, a speaker-emulated Direct Out, a Baltic Birch cabinet and a 3-function footswitch that switches channels, turns the effects on or off, and also activates a 10dB overall volume boost for solos.
The '72 Coupe is a highly tuned amplifier that sounds as hot as it looks.
The padded Tuck n' Roll panels of the Anniversary Coupe are crafted using the original Uniroyal® Naugahide material but with a bold racing stripe added and a special "1966 — 2006" embroidered logo stitched directly onto the colored panel. Otherwise, the model is identical to the standard '72 Coupe design that is now being endorsed by professional players such as Tracii Guns, Roy Z, Rich Eckhardt (Toby Keith), Van Zant, Jeff Bates, and more. Anniversary Coupes will be shipped with a matching cover that also features the Kustom 40th Anniversary logo.

The quality is outstanding and the attention to detail is better than most other amp makers. Has more features than almost any amp for the money. The tuck and roll front is pure class! Got mine with the blue. Comes with cool retro looking casters. Very easy to use, the buttons on the footswitch are very easy to push in and out. Dont even need shoes like most others. The sound is second to none. I can get the same exact sound from my 72 as I get from my USA Hot Rod Deluxe. I have sworn by my USA Hot Rod Deluxe for years but now it just sits there. I will probably sell it now. Buy this amp!
What I mean is you need to replace the stock speakers. I played my buddy's today at my house and was really excited to here this thing in action but, as soon as I plugged in a fired it up I was disappointed. No matter how you set the amp's controls it just give a honky bass sound. After being so let down by this I thought I'd try hooking it up to my marshall loaded with vintage 30's.....man what a difference! The stock speakers suck out so much of this amps gain and tone....I was so shocked by the difference that I plan on buying one of these and replacing the speakers with some V30's...or just buy the head version. Don't let this amp fool you if you play it in a store...it rips with some good speakers.
