barebones Monaco - Handwired All-Valve Guitar Amplifier

5Watt Class A with Celestion 12" Greenback, with Recording Output

Perfect for Practice, Studio and Stage, the barebones Monaco offers pure valve tone with full command of your sound

Featuring a single 12AX7 in cascade mode for maximum overdrive; a single 6V6 for glorious overdriven tones at reasonable volumes; speakers by none other than Celestion, whose speakers drive some of the best amps ever built

​The barebones Monacooffers full command of your sound -

  • Tailor your sound with full 'Bass', 'Middle' and 'Treble' controls
  • 'Gain' takes your sound from beautiful single-coil tones reminiscent of the 60's right through to thick humbucker distortion for solos, power chords and a driving rhythm
  • ​The master 'Volume' allows bedroom practice without upsetting the neighbours. However, when you get to the stage or studio, take the Volume closer to 10 where this amp really starts cooking. Tones that instantly transport you to The Crossroads, Stairway to Heaven or a Highway to Hell...

​Close mic'd, the barebones Monaco provides crystal clear tones which sound like they are straight from the records you listen to everyday. This is no surprise as the barebones Monaco is built using traditional methods with quality components throughout. Not a stone has been left unturned in search for the ultimate tone

The barebones Monaco offers a speaker-compensated 'Recording' output. This can be used to record straight in to your desk or DAW, to send to the front of house or monitor mix at a gig, or even to feed another amplifier!

We have striven to produce the finest amplifier possible, mixing the best of vintage design with the best modern reliability. An amplifier we hope you'll be proud to own; an amplifier which will serve you well for many years to come
