British Overdrive Custom Plexi!  This is one of very coolest custom amps I've ever built and I'm going to start offering them to other customers soon.  It's 20W Plexi with a 67', 69', 71' mode, tube/solid state rectifier switch,  a power control so it can go down to 1/10W.  It can use any common power tube in either a pair or mixed pair.  Endless tone possibilities yet completely familiar and classic!! Finally a Plexi anyone can play.  The buyer wrote me: " Carl, I could not be happier with this amp!! Hands down the most versatile amp I've ever owned or played. I've never been able to achieve these amazing Marshall tones with any modern Marshall I've owned or played. It's like I've got Hendrix and Page in a box! Now if only I could play!  Thanks again for the amazing amplifier, thank you for your patience in dealing with my multitude of questions and above all thank you for a superior product and your excellent customer service. I will be sending everyone I know your way when they ask about an amplifier.  -Nyles Reynolds

This was cool amp I did a little while ago. It started it's life as Mesa Boogie Blue Angel which was frankly noisy and rather dead sounding. I built a Vox AC-30 with master volume and reverb and numerous circuit improvements to give off the classic jangle and crunch but with less harshness. The speaker was replaced with Weber Alinco Blue Dog. The result is classic!

I made this Ampeg style head for a player wanting smooth Jazz tones. It's got a wide range tone controls, octal 6SL7 pre-amp and 7591 power tubes. With few special touches of my own it yield smooth round vintage sounds and overdrives nicely when cranked.

I restored this Mesa Boogie Mark II B.  It's an interesting amp and gets that Santana kind of sound as well as Fenderish cleans.  The Electro-Voice speaker serves up great sound and can double as boat anchor.  It's certainly it's one of Mesa's better models.  It's ridiculously compact and difficult to service due to it's construction.

This amp is the protoype for the the British Overdrive Series.  Housed in a plywood it got that great 60's Marshall crunch!  the buyer wrote: "This is the amp I've been looking for, sounds amazing, a 15 watt plexi with a master volume. 2nd amp I've bought from Carl, I hope he gets as big as he deserves to be one day..and glad i bought a couple amps before he gets discovered and is able to charge twice as much.

The Texas Tremolo Amp!  It's another one of my tweaked versions of the Fender Brownface Princeton circuit.  beautiful warm cleans and great dirt too!  I built it with a vintage 60's Conn Organ output transformer. 15 Watts with bias shifting trem.  The buyer wrote: " I could not be more pleased with this purchase. My expectations in both tone and quality were greatly surpassed, this is an outstanding amp head! I actually wasn't expecting tubes, so that was a nice bonus. I am a new fan and WILL be a repeat customer for certain. Thanks Sir, you are a true craftsman."   Robert

I called this one the Foxy 15. This chassis uses a slightly modified Vox AC-30 Top Boost Circuit, that's  15 watts and bit smoother. It has  a Blues Junior transformer set. It's also got switch that shifts between a tube and solid state rectifier sound which gives you a bit more compression with the amp turned up.  Chimey and crunchy!

This cool 70's Acoustic 406 2x15 Bass Cab came in needing new speakers.  The speaker were replaced with Weber Bass 15s and I added stuffing to the enclosure since they came without it and it a more of a necessity for bass cab.  The result:  Great vintage bass punch. Great sounding cab!

The 1959 High Power Tweed Twin came in for repair. It had some issues but fixed up it's probably the best vintage Fender I have ever played. It's got some strange mistakes made in the factory that give it it's own sound. It's owned by the fantastic Josh Hyde (http://www.joshhyde.com/) who is great player and guy. I was honored to work on it. Be sure to check out his music! Josh also owns my version of Tweed Twin as backup for his touring rig.

Fender Custom Shop  57' Low Power Twin that we modded.  The circuit has lots of flaws and cheap filter cops  that really keep it from sounding good.  Fender almost verbatim copied the old schematic without solving all the little problems good techs have been solving for years with these. In addition the voltages were way too high making it really harsh.  With some work that map now sounds just as it should: warm, responsive and killer!

This custom build features a 30 Watt  Brownface Princeton circuit minus the trem with lots of improvements including a fat switch.  The amp can use 6L6GC, 5881s, or 6V6s.  Killer tone!  Here's what the customer had to say: "Carl, gave it a full out run thru last night, and as expected it sounded fantastic!  I can't thank you enough for working with me to get the tone I was after. Your recommendations were rights on point!   It sits in that perfect zone for me, more articulate / cleaner than tweeds,  but not uber clean with scooped mids like blackface. The clean tone has great vintage vibe & character, and when cranked it has a creamy breakup that never gets ratty or muddy.  I  really preferred 6L6's as I thought I would, but 6v6 is still really nice.  It's going to be loud enough with a 1x12 cab to play with any band I'm in, but not without the ability to turn it up to that sweet spot (2 o'clock for me) and have that "clean with character" tone. Dead quiet, and great natural sustain...no compressor needed.  I now need to send the family out for a day trip so I can try it with all my guitars and pedals and really woodshed!  If I ever get around to treating myself to another amp (plenty already, but we guitarists all want more) I will hit you up.  I've wanted an octal amp for quite some time for harmonica, slide and just straight out of the amp crunch.     Thanks again! Brian"

Tweed Bassman Reissue that came in sounding harsh and hard.  The amp was rebuilt with a Classic Tone Output transformer and high quality caps.  The voltage was dropped and output tube changed to correct 5881s. The speakers were rewired to play forward like the original Bassman.  Now it is warm smooth and musical sounding!

Cool  40W  Blackface Bassman Style circuit I named the "Clean Machine".  It has some tweaks that make it more responsive to the touch.  I used some extra large transformers which gave the amp great low end.

This Master Volume Silverface Twin Reverb came to me needing some help.  I re-capped it, cleaned up tube sockets, and modded the circuit to Blackface Twin specs. I also made a few little changes of my own that I do to all Twins that people rave about.  The owner was very pleased with his new amp!

Fender Brownface Pro. It came in as just a chassis and a non-original cab. Once a few components were switched out,  it was re-tubed, the grill cloth was replaced, casters were added and a Weber 50 Watt Alnico Speaker was put in. Man this thing was cool!

This was another custom build. The customer wanted a Supro type amp but with more power and more versatility.  This one has a Valco Supreme channel with a 6J7 and a mid fifties Valco channel with a 6Sl7.  A 6SL7 was used for the phase inverter and a 5U4 was the rectifer. Also has a gain switch. Very cool amp with sweet cleans and beefy overdrive.

This vintage Supro Thunderbolt came to me completely trashed. The owner had found it.    After hearing about my Thundergod Amp  he sent it in to be restored!

If you have played a Pro Junior they are kind of disappointing.  If you've played a Champ you know no one walks away unimpressed!  Lame to insane!

This Silverface Champ came in badly needing a re-cap.  I also removed the tone sucking snubbing cab this model had. Interestingly the transformers are much nicer than the Blackface ones. Really sounded great when I was done!

This amp was once a Fender Pro Junior. I stripped it down and built a single channel version of a 1624T Supro. Great overdrive from those 6973 power tubes!
