    Simply put, the Defender V50 has tones, style and performance that will blow you away.

    Kustom puts 2 EL34 power tubes at the heart of The Defender 50W combo guitar amp. The result: defined lows, rich aggressive mids and a sweet top end that cuts through the mix but is never harsh. Armed with a venerable 12" Celestion Vintage 30 speaker and a cabinet made with void-free Baltic Birch, The Defender amplifier sings and screams with unrivaled authority.

    The Defender amp's 2-channel design includes a Master Volume control on each channel that lets you dial in anything from chunky, medium-gain sounds to scorching, full-on heavy tones. Furthermore, each Volume control has its own Pull Bright function that tightens the low-end and extends the hi-end: perfect for articulate high-gain tones. Bass, Middle and Treble controls provide full tone-shaping capabilities.

    The Defender also provides luscious spring Reverb with its own Tone control: a classic Kustom feature from the 1960s. From spacious to cavernous, it's your choice.

    And when it's time for the gig or the studio, The Defender V50 amp's speaker-emulated XLR Direct Out totally nails the amp's overall sound for mixers. A variable, footswitch-able Volume Boost that works on either channel makes solos—or those quick fills—stand out in the mix.

    An optional 3-function Kustom footswitch enables users to switch channels, turn the boost on or off, and activate effects.

      Comments about Kustom The Defender V50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This is hands down the best amp I have ever played. I have some very expensive boutique amps. They do do not sound like this amp. They are no longer available, if you find one get it you will be glad you did. I was at first confused about the price. I had to find out the flaw, I gave up, there are not any.

        Comments about Kustom The Defender V50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I got this amp when it went on sale for [$]. Needless to say that this was an exceptional deal. It comes witht the Celestion custom 30 speaker and it is a rich sounding amp. It also came with the 3-way foot switch. The cleans are very good and it is possible to overdrive the clean channel to get a little dirty. The lead channel gets pretty heavy but doesn't get to a Pantera level but is still pretty good. The boost function can be set on the back to dial in the amount that you need. It does help cut through the mix. Overall this amp is very nice and at the price of [$]there is no match for sure.

        Talk about a KILLER amp!!

        Comments about Kustom The Defender V50 50W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I have to tell you about one of the best sounding amps I've ever played through or owned. Man, this little dude is AWESOME! I have played country, rock, blues, metal, funk, pop, and this amp can cover it all. I've played Fenders, Marshalls, Crates, Peaveys and even a few Soldanos and this amp ranks right up there with the best of them. this lil Defender V50 is now my main amp. Seems to be very soundly built. The tone you can get out of this amp is amazing. James Brown hit a home run when he designed this baby. I only gave it a 4 on features because the only improvements that could be made, in my opinion, would be to cover it with the tuck and roll like the old Kustoms and to add the tremolo/vibrato feature of the 100 watt version to it. Other than that, this is one fine amp that can work for you no matter what type or style of music you play.
