The CPC-40T is my version of the legendary 5F6A Tweed Bassman . At 40 Watts it's great  mid powered amp  for blues, rockabilly, rock and roll and classic rock players.  It's loud enough to play at most clubs and it great for a player for which touch sensitivity and awesome 50's tone is key. It takes pedals really well too! 

The overdrive is crunchy and and full of character and the cleans are rich.  The originals were famously played by so many greats. Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, and countless others some to mind.

Mine is built with all the tone and care of the originals but with enchantments that make them quieter and more reliable.  I offer the amp as Tweed Head, Cage Head and as 2X12 and 4X10 combo.  No other builder makes a Tweed Bassman this good.

" I own 7 custom fender amp heads previously my favorite a 1947 600 Champ with odd tubes next was a Fender Pro. Yours is the best head I own and that saying something!"
