Latest addition to our tweed amp range

Example pic5W 1x10 combo

With its 10” speaker, uprated transformers and high spec components throughout, this 5W Class A combo will redefine your expectations of what a small amp is capable of.

Clean tones shimmer with harmonics and sustain even at conversation level, and gradually morph into rich, organic and articulate overdrive as the volume passes halfway.

Equally good tonally with all types of pickups, there’s enough clean headroom for humbuckers and it handles them surprisingly well for such a small amp.

Ideal for the home player seeking pure valve tone unadulterated by master volumes, attenuators or other power reduction methods.

With its ‘big amp’ sound at low volume and sound pressure levels, and top notch component and build quality, it’s perfect for pro recording, teaching and practice.

Mark M. Purchased new 2021

Just wanted to drop a quick line to say how genuinely stunned I am with
your 6G3 build - unquestionably one of the finest amps I've had the good
fortune to plug into. It really is faultless, unbelievably low background noise,
sublime classic brownface tremolo coupled with layer upon layer of awe
inspiring vintage laden brownface tone . . truly breathtaking!! How does a
new amp sound so convincingly vintage?!

Just got this and wanted to mail you just to say WOW! Incredible amp.
I also have a Joe Bonamassa one and to my ears this sounds way better.

Will G.  Purchased new 2020

I had a few hours to sit down properly with the amp this evening. It is an
absolute wonder. Really - stunning. I have played around a little with
everything and your instructions make more and more sense. Got to put
my pedals through it and they sounded wonderful.
