The Half Pint was designed to be the most versatile low power amplifier possible. Reverb and tremolo and Class A single ended breakup are just the start of what this little amp can do. With the onboard voltage controlled power scaling, you can turn this amp up to 10 and dial it back to just a fraction of a watt so that your fun zone is volume appropriate for just about anywhere.
This amp is comfortable on stage, in studio, and at home. Because of the variable power, you can set it how you like and adjust the power level for the room.
The power section of this amplifier consists of a single 6V6 power tube biased to class A. The front end is similar to the Creamer, with extended headroom reverb and tremolo.
Jupiter Alnico 12" has a classic American alnico magnet sound. A bit less transparent in the upper midrange, this speaker adds a "woody" tone. Its lively on top, and a bit more focused in the bass response than the Greenback. The speaker starts to break up and add alnico character as the amp is pushed. Its the most efficient of the 3 speaker options.
The amplifier is hand wired onto a turret board with Mercury Magnetics and Jupiter capacitors are standard equipment.
