CPC 5 Head

CPC-5 II The Hawk



The CPC-II Hawk is our new version of the CPC-5.  I have added a unquie 5W/1W switch that allows for transparent volume reduction and fat switch so the amp gets along well with both single coils and hummbuckers. It  works well with lots of different speakers. 

It's a great little amp for the bedroom and recording and has chimey cleans and get really crunchy fast. It nails that live Keith Richards tones with a telecaster and those early Jimmy Page tones with a Les Paul.  Think Vox meets  vintage Supro!

What folks are saying about the CPC-5

Hi Carl,

Though you might like to know I am very happy with my amp and speaker cab. It’s amazing how much that amp set up sings even on 1 watt with that detuned cab. Thanks for helping me with this set up, I may be coming back to you for another build soon...


"I received the amp yesterday and it's simply incredible. What a throwback amp from the glory days of rock/blues tone!"  Chris Ines---Canada


"This amp is phenomenal! 5 watts is more than enough with this puppy... THANKS!" --R Morrison PA, USA  


"This is a great little amp. It'll see more than my living room: I'll definitely play this one out. I love the simplicity of it: there's nothing to get in-between the sound of your guitar and speaker. It's chimey and punchy, breaks up nicely and is throaty at full volume. Thank you for building such a quality product at such a reasonable price."  -----D. Black
